  • To make peanut butter chocolate cookie, first and foremost, in a bowl, mix 1/2 a cup of creamy peanut butter and unsalted melted butter (of the same quantity) until it reaches a smooth consistency. Then, to the mixture add 1/4 cup of white granulated sugar and 3/4 cup of brown sugar and mix well till it becomes creamy.
  • Thereafter, add 1 tsp of vanilla extract, an egg yolk, and salt and mix well. Thereafter, add 1 and 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour slowly to the mixture, until the cookie dough is formed. Add chocolate chips to the dough.

  • On cookie sheets covered with parchment paper or silicones baking mats, scoop and place 2 tbsp-sized cookie dough balls (make how many ever you can with the dough) and allow it to chill for 30 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350-degree Fahrenheit. Use a fork to press the cookie dough balls flat. Once the dough balls are flat, bake them in the oven for nearly 8 to 15 minutes, until the bottom of the cookies begin to look slightly brown and their top loses its wet texture, indicating that they are properly baked.
