Pinterest Cookie – Nailed it.By
I won’t lie – they’re not even a little bit good for you. Not even if you ate them on, say, a bed of spinach. But….wow.
They are chocolate chip, peanut butter, sea salt cookies. Easy. Tasty. Best cookies ever.
I found them on Pinterest, which links to this amazing site; The Ambitious Kitchen. I definitely recommend giving the site a look – there is some yummy looking stuff in there that I plan to try next! In the meantime – here’s their recipe for these amazing cookies:
- 11/4 cup all purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, plus more for sprinkling
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter at room temperature
- 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon honey
- 1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon plain greek yogurt or sour cream
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I used mini chocolate chips)
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, the baking soda, the baking powder, and the salt. Set aside.
- With an electric mixer, mix the softened butter and peanut butter together until thoroughly blended. Add the sugars and beat until smooth. Next beat in the egg, honey, vanilla, and yogurt until combined. Add the dry ingredients slowly and beat on low-speed just until combined. Gently stir in the chocolate chips. Chill dough in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes-1 hour, or place in freezer for 20 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Once ready to bake, roll dough into 1-inch balls and place onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 9-12 minutes (depends on size of your cookie) or until cookies begin to turn a tiny golden brown and crisp up around the edges. Do not overbake! Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes and sprinkle cookies generously with sea salt. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely or just inhale them like I do. Repeat with remaining dough.
-Cookies may appear underdone in the middle, but they will become more firm as they cool. It’s important to allow them to cool a few minutes before removing them from cookie sheet. -You may require less or more baking time depending on the size of your cookie. -If you are using all-natural peanut butter, try adding in another 1/2 tablespoon of flour, as cookies tend to spread too thin when baking with all-natural peanut butter.
Great… Now I’m hungry! Love peanut butter chocolate chip, never thought of sea salt tho… Can’t wait to give this recipe a try :)
