Ingredients

  • 1 cup real unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chunky or creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Add the eggs, egg yolk, and vanilla; mix until fluffy. Stir in peanut butter. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt; fold into the peanut butter mixture. Fold in dark chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • Roll dough into walnut sized balls, or use a cookie scoop. Place cookies on the prepared cookie sheet and flatten slightly, criss-crossing with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven.
  • Cookies should look dry on top. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet before removing to cool completely on a rack.
