Step 1

Dark Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies - Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, using electric mixer, beat powdered sugar, brown sugar, and butter until creamy. I like to use butter that’s at room temperature but still holds its “stick” shape pretty well.
Add peanut butter, vanilla extract, and egg, continue blending until creamy.

Step 3

Dark Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies - Step 3

Add dry ingredients from step 1 into peanut butter mixture, and mix just until well-combined. Stir in dark chocolate chips. Your cookie dough should be somewhat tough to stir, because you used room temperature butter, and it should look like this:

Step 4

Place spoonfuls of cookie dough onto ungreased baking sheet, spacing about 1 1/2 inches apart. You can either leave a cookie in a shape of the ball or flatten them.

Step 5

Bake cookies for about 12 minutes, without browning them too much.
