These peanut butter cookies are filled with chunks of dark chocolate and chopped peanuts, and sprinkled with sea salt. Trust me, you won’t be able to eat just one.

- 2C flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 2/3 C light brown sugar, packed
- 2/3 C granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1C creamy peanut butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¾ C salted, roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
- 6oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped into ¼ to ½ inch pieces (or ¾ C chocolate chips)
- Fleur de sel (French sea salt), for sprinkling
- Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Combine butter and sugars in a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until creamy.
- Add eggs, one at a time, beating on medium speed until combined. Beat in peanut butter and vanilla extract, scraping sides of bowl.
- Add dry ingredients in 2-3 additions, mixing over low speed until just combined. Stir in peanuts and chocolate. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until dough has firmed.
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat. Shape tablespoon-sized portions of dough into balls and place on baking sheet. Flatten slightly with fingers. Return remaining dough to fridge for 5-10 minutes.
- For chewy cookies, bake 10-13 minutes or until golden and browned around the edges. For crunchier cookies, bake 2-3 minutes longer, or until lightly browned. Sprinkle with fleur de sel while hot, allow to cool for a few minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat in batches with remaining dough. Enjoy.
