I'll have to post a picture later, because each time I made a batch of these, I forgot to take one (they didn't last very long, either). I left the dough in the refrigerator and made one sheet at a time - better than making them all at once and having them go stale! You'll get about five dozen from this recipe.
If you like peanut butter cookies, these are fantastic - they have peanut butter, chopped peanuts, and peanut butter chips. A triple play of peanut butter! If you need some chocolate with your peanut butter, add a some mini chocolate chips or replace some of the peanut butter chips with chocolate ones. Personally, I prefer them with just peanut butter - if I want chocolate, I'll make these.
Triple Play Peanut Butter Cookies from King Arthur Flour
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
16 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cup peanut butter
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups chopped dry-roasted salted peanuts
1 1/3 cups peanut butter chips
Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or spray with Pam.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, sugars and peanut butter. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined after each. Add the flour mixture, nuts and chips - stir until combined.
Bake right away or chill for later.
Scoop the mixture using a tablespoon cookie scoop on to prepared baking sheets and slightly flatten them. Bake until the centers are set and the edges are golden, about 12-13 minutes. Remove and let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
