Cookies made by hand - perfect with a glass of milk
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1 stick unsalted butter
6 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 large egg, and 1 large egg yolk, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, cut into chunks
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a small pan, combine butter and almond butter. Melt over low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
In a bowl, combine butter mixture with sugars and stir until combined and smooth. Add eggs and vanilla and stir until smooth. Add flour mixture, 1/3 at a time, mixing until just incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Form cookie dough into small balls and flatten them out slightly with your hand. Leave enough space between cookies for them to spread.
Bake for 9 minutes.
