Learn how to make them
Start by combining butter, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg and vanilla extract in a bowl. Mix together with a spoon and be sure not to overmix.
In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.
Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, again being careful not to overmix.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Refrigerate dough for 10-15 minutes. While dough is in the refrigerator, preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Using a teaspoon, scoop dough by heaping spoonfuls (about 2 teaspoons per scoop) and form into balls. Place dough balls onto baking sheet.
Bake approximately 7-9 minutes until edges are slightly golden brown. Once the cookies are set, transfer to a wire rack to cool. Once cooled, YOU CAN EAT THEM! 🙂 🙂 🙂
