My favorite Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie
I am so, so, so excited to be attending Mixed, my first food bloggers conference later this month.
Dixie Crystals is one of the sponsors and they are part of Bake It Forward, which you can find out more about here.
Dixie Crystals is also hosting a cookie contest. They are looking for cookies that travel well in a tin and my favorite peanut butter chocolate chip cookies will do just that, as long as you don't eat them all first!
The combination of chocolate and peanut butter is my fave and the addition of the honey helps to keep them soft and chewy. Make some today and be sure to check out Bake It Forward too :)
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup Dixie Crystals light brown sugar
1/3 cup Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat brown sugar, sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add peanut butter, vanilla, honey and eggs; mixing well. Turn mixer to low and add flour, baking soda and salt. Mix just until combined. Pour in chocolate chips and stir to combine.
Using a medium size cookie scoop, drop dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet (I used a Silpat mat).
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or just until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet onto a wire rack to cool. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
