Salted Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

1¼ cups all-purpose flour

½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

½ cup (4 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature

¾ cup creamy peanut butter

2/3 cup light brown sugar

1/3 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

½ cup peanuts

Coarse salt for sprinkling


Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.


2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.


3. Beat together the butter, peanut butter and both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes, scraping the bowl as needed. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla extract. Scrape the bowl. Add the dry ingredients and mix on low until just combined. Using a rubber spatula, stir in the chocolate chips and peanuts.


4. Drop by two heaping tablespoonfuls of dough, spacing the cookies about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle a small pinch of coarse salt on top of each cookie. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until the outside of the cookies are set but the middles are still a little soft. Cool cookies on the baking sheets. Store in an airtight container.
