ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Chunky Peanut, Chocolate and Cinnamon Cookies

I saw this recipe while flipping through Martha Stewart's Cookie book at Border's and it stopped me in my tracks. Genius. She is a genius. I had to try it immediately, and it was so, so worth it. Chunky, yes. Peanuty, chocolatey, and cinnamony, yes. Don't even question. Martha doesn't make mistakes.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup roasted salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350. Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl.

2. Put butter and peanut butter in an electric mixer bowl and mix on medium until combined, 2 minutes. Add sugars; mix 2 minutes. Mix in eggs. Gradually add in flour mixture; mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips, peanuts and vanilla with mixing spoon until well distributed. Refrigerate dough until slightly firm, 15 minutes.

3. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Space balls 2 to 3 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment or silicone. Flatten slightly. Bake until golden around edges, about 13 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool and serve with ice cream. Makes about 4 1/2 dozen with medium cookie scoop.

hey cookie wizard -
i was wondering if you have come across a plain old regular peanut butter cookie recipe that you love. i'm looking for something chewy. the recipes i keep trying SEEM like they're going to be the one, and then they end up too dry and just a little brittle. i want a cookie that will bend!

Hey, good question. I have a peanut butter oatmeal cookie that will post soon and it's good but I wouldn't say dreamy or bendy. I haven't had a lot of luck with pb cookies but I also haven't tried a lot of them. You could try this one and take out the cinnamon and chocolate, let me know if you do that and it works. I will make this an immediate priority. That's right, I take requests.
