  • 1/2 cup butter at cool room temperature
  • 1/2 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter not natural
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped lightly salted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips¹


  • In a large bowl, beat butter and peanut butter together.
  • Add sugars, and beat until well-combined.
  • Mix in egg and vanilla until combined.
  • Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir until combined. 
  • Stir in chopped nuts and mini chips, if using. 
  • Cover, and chill dough for 1 hour, or until firm. Don't skip this step, or the cookies will bake out.
  • Toward the end of the chilling time, preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Scoop out 1.5 tablespoons of dough and place on prepared cookie sheet 2 inches apart. I've slightly flattened the cookies and left them as-is, and it doesn't seem to make much difference.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned and middles are set.
