Soft & Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

 
Who doesn't love peanut butter? And chocolate? And both of them combined? Chewy, soft cookies with crispy edges? Yumm, you can't deny them. Not with how easy this recipe is; 5 ingredients!

I used to be such a baker girl back in college, whipping batches and batches of cookies or brownies every now and then. I no longer have the luxury of time to bake after started working full time, but the holiday gave me time to revisit my favorite peanut butter cookies recipe.

1 cup  of peanut butter (store-bought. You can use both the creamy one and chunky one. I use creamy skippy for the 'melt in your mouth' kind of cookies, and chunky for extra peanut chunks)
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 large eggs
1 tbs baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips/chocolate chunks, or, really; go overzealous with them
additional (for me): 1 tsp of vanilla extract

Mix brown sugar, egg, and baking soda on mixing bowl until thoroughly incorporated,

add in the peanut butter and mix again. Enjoy that heavenly peanut butter scent filling your house, proceed with caution; do not dip your finger too much into the batter. I know it's tempting, but; don't. Once is enough,

dunk in the chocolate chips/chunks. Mix again to your liking; use spatula if you wanted the chocolate to be big, or mixer if you want them broken into little pieces and play'peek a boo' in your mouth later,

chill the dough for at least 2 hours, or overnight,

Scoop the dough using small ice cream scoop, place it on baking try with 5 cm between each cookies.

Bake in 250 F for 8~10 minutes. Let it cool, then,

dig in.
