Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

My Facebook fans Jim and Holly asked for advice on how to make a soft and chewy peanut butter cookie with chocolate, so I developed this recipe just for them. (Vegetable shortening or coconut oil, both of which are soft at room temperature, lend their texture to the cookies.) This is a sensational cookie, but if you want peanuts through and through, substitute peanut butter chips for the chocolate ones.

Directions

Position the oven racks in the top third and center of the oven and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line 2 large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, beat the brown sugar, butter, and shortening with an electric mixer set on high speed until combined, about 1 minute. Beat in the egg, followed by the egg yolk and vanilla. Add the peanut butter and mix well. With the mixer on low speed, mix in the flour mixture, just until combined. Mix in the chocolate chips.

Roll the dough into 30 walnut-sized balls. Arrange about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Using a dinner fork, press an X into the top of each cookie, flattening it to about half of its original thickness. Refrigerate the remaining dough balls on a plate while you bake the first batch.

Bake, rotating the positions of the sheets from top to bottom and front to back halfway through baking, until the cookies are golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and let cool completely. Repeat with the remaining dough balls, using cooled baking sheets.

    Thank you for this recipe; have been hoping I'de find one. I love the cookies with the kiss on the top but don't always feel like unwrapping 100 kisses. This is a perfectly yummy cookie that is full of flavor and almost falls apart in your hand. sure taste great going down. Takes just a few mins. more to make but more than worth it. It's in my file of favorites that's for sure. Give it an A plus
