Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Many months ago, a work colleague told me that he had found the best cookie he’d ever eaten; a thin, slightly chewy, crisply sugar-crusted peanut butter chocolate chip treat. They came from a coffee shop near his house, and one day he brought me one; admittedly, it was very delicious, though I do like a bit more ooomph to my cookie. I liked the chew but wasn’t crazy about the thinness. But let’s be clear: the peanut butter chocolate combo was a dream (we all knew that already, didn’t we?!), and I love love loved the slight crunch of the sugar coating.


Then, about two months ago, and looking utterly destroyed, this co-worker told me that the cafe was no longer selling the cookie – the bakery that supplied the cookies was moving. On the bright side, my colleague was pretty sure the barista had a crush on him, and had promised to supply the recipe. And in turn, I let him know that if he gave me the recipe, I’d bake the cookies.


We finally just got the recipe, and while the cookies don’t bake up like they do in the cafe, I’m thrilled to say that I like this version better (and especially after I tweaked the recipe to up the peanut butter and remove the fancy flours, so it’s more accessible to bake for us home cooks). These cookies are rich in nutty peanut butter, dotted with chocolate chips, thick, soft, chewy, with a sweet crunch from the sugar coating. A glass of milk is definitely required!
