Just A Morsel of Goodness To Start the Week Off

Oh, these are chunky. These are fabulous. And perhaps a top ten favorite cookie for me. Why?

Three words:

Peanut Butter

Good enough?

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookie
{Adapted from Martha Stewart "Everyday Food}

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
4 tablespoons ( 1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup packed dark-brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda; set aside. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat peanut butter, butter, and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat until smooth. With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture, beating just until combined. Stir in chocolate chunks.
Drop dough by heaping tablespoons, 1 inch apart, onto two large baking sheets. Bake until golden, 13 to 15 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.
