Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 9 ounces weight
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened (4 ounces weight)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened peanut butter 5 ounces weight
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar 3 1/2 ounces weight
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar 6 ounces weight
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate cut into chunks
  • 3 ounces white chocolate cut into chunks
  • 2/3 cup lightly salted roasted peanuts

Instructions

  • In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together the butter, peanut butter and both sugars until creamy. Beat in the vanilla and the eggs.
  • Add flour mixture and stir to make a soft dough. Stir in the dark and white chunks, then stir in the peanuts.
  • Divide dough into 20 balls and arrange on a parchment or foil lined plate. Chill for an hour, then bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until cookies appear set. Let cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then carefully remove and let cool completely

Notes

I chilled my dough rounds for an hour because I think the cookies bake up a little thicker this way, but if you're in a hurry you could probably skip the chilling.
