Chunky Peanut, Chocolate and Cinnamon Cookies

Chunky Peanut, Chocolate and Cinnamon Cookies

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3/4 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

1 cup light brown sugar--7 ounces

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I used half milk chocolate and half semi sweet)

2/3 cup roasted, salted peanuts, coarsely chopped


In a bowl mix together flour, soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.

Put butter and peanut butter in bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed for about 2 minutes. Add sugars and mix 2 minutes. Mix in eggs and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture, mix until just combined. Fold in nuts and chocolate chips. Refrigerate until dough is firm about 20 minutes. 

Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on a parchment lined baking stone (I used a Medium Pampered Chef Scoop). Bake at 350 degrees for 13 minutes until just golden. Cool on wire racks. Makes 5 dozen cookies.
