Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies





Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

yields about 24 cookies


  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (that’s 1 stick) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (please do not use low-fat)
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon sour cream (or buttermilk)
  • 12 oz chopped dark chocolate (milk is okay too, I suppose.)


  1. In a medium size mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt; Set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer bowl, fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter and peanut butter until smooth and creamy- about 3-5 minutes on medium speed. Add both sugars and beat until combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, honey, vanilla, and sour cream. Beat on medium speed for about 3 to 5 minutes, scrapping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  3. Add the dry ingredients and beat on low speed until just combined. (Try not to over-mix.) Switch over to a large rubber spatula and stir in the chocolate chunks. Cover the bowl tightly and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  5. Measure out about a rounded Tablespoonful of dough for each cookie. Roll the dough a ball and place on the prepared sheets- allowing about 1 1/2-inches of space between each cookie. {Note: You can make a criss-cross pattern using a floured fork but my cookies lost most of the pattern whilst they were baking.}
  6. Bake for 9-12 minutes, or until the edges are just beginning to set. {Note: Don’t over-bake the cookies. They might look slightly raw in the middle but will set nicely once cool.} Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to rest on the sheets until they’re firm enough to transfer to a cooling rack.
