Chewy Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'm busy as a bee as there are so many tight datelines to meet at work. Thank God my youngest son's exams are over... that's a relief, at least for a while, until I get to see the report book...  Anyway, tonight, I'm posting 2 recipes of cookies because I'm trying to meet the dateline for Aspiring Bakers event on chocolate cookies. 

These Chewy Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookies  were actually made by my son for his practice session in preparation for his year-end Home Economics  practical assessment. He searched for the recipe himself... my role was to get the ingredients ready, demonstrate, supervise & advise... He actually made 2 batches, just to be sure that he could bake them without any hiccups. He said the cookies turned out well during the exam except that they were quite fragile. I suspect they were undercooked because of the oven temperature. Anyway, it was not a problem at all since his classmates helped to finish up all the cookies..... thank you boys!

1 stick (125g) butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 375 deg F (190 deg C) and line a baking sheet with parchment or a baking mat.
  2. Cream the butter and peanut butter on medium high for 1 minute.
  3. Add sugars and beat at med-high for another minute. Add egg and vanilla and mix until smooth.
  4. Add flour, baking soda and salt on low speed until thoroughly combined. Mix in chocolate chips (the dough will be quite soft).
  5. Chill dough for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Drop the dough by the small scoopfuls onto a lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are golden brown. For a crispier cookie, allow the entire cookie to brown. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes and then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
