A Peanut Butter Chocolate Delight

Ingredients:

1/2 cup softened butter (1 stick)

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1 large egg

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup milk chocolate chips

1/2 teaspoon canola or vegetable oil

1/2 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

Preheat & Prep: Set your oven to a cozy 375°. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or give it a quick spray with cooking spray.

Creamy Blend: In a stand mixer or using a handheld blender, whip together butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until they’re creamy and lighter in color. Crack in the egg and blend again.

Whisk & Combine: In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Gradually add this to the wet mix, blending just enough to combine.

Shape & Bake: Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and arrange them on your cookie sheet. They don’t spread much, so you can fit about 15 per sheet. Bake them for 8 minutes.

Press for Perfection: Once out of the oven, gently press each cookie with a small cup. This not only flattens them but also creates those gorgeous crinkly edges.

Cool & Transfer: Let the cookies cool on the sheet for 10 minutes, then move them to a cooling rack.

Chocolate Topping: Melt chocolate chips and oil in a microwave-safe bowl, doing 30-second bursts for 2 minutes, stirring in between. Spoon a bit of this melted chocolate onto each cookie and spread it out.

Final Touch: Let the chocolate set completely, about 2 hours, before dusting with powdered sugar. For quicker setting, pop the cookies in the fridge or freezer.
