How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350º. Beat butter and peanut butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars; beating well. Add egg and vanilla; beat well.

Step 2

Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to butter mixture; beat at low speed until well blended. Stir in chocolate chunks. (If desired, store dough in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 1 week.)

Step 3

Drop cookie dough by heaping tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto parchment paper-lined or lightly greased baking sheets.

Step 4

Bake at 350º for 11 to 12 minutes or until edges of cookies are brown. Bake chilled dough 13 to 14 minutes.) Cool on baking sheets on a wire rack 3 minutes; transfer to wire racks, and cool completely (about 30 minutes).

Loved these cookies. I smashed them a little before baking so that they would be a flatter cookie. Very good. The first ones I baked didn't flatten out like cookies usually do as they bake. So they were thick. We liked the flatter ones much better. I will definitely make these again.

These are to die for. My husband loves them! I did have to bake them several minutes longer than it said, but could be my oven....
