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
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a small pan, combine butter and almond butter. Melt over low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
  4. 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.
