When you want a quick and easy one-bowl cookie recipe to fill those nostalgic needs, these  soft peanut butter chocolate cookies are just the thing. A classic, soft and pillowy peanut butter cloud stuffed with chunks of gooey chocolate.




  1. Preheat to 180 C. Line 2 baking trays and set aside.
  2. Add butter, sugar and peanut butter to a mixing bowl. Using beaters, cream for 2-3 minutes or medium speed, or until slightly fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, and beat until just combined.
  3. Sift in the dry ingredients, then use a rubber spatula to fold together until just combined. Once all the dry pockets of flour have gone, stop folding. Add chocolate chunks and fold through 3-4 times.
  4. Use a dessert spoon and measure out a heaped spoon of dough. With clean hands, roll into a ball. Place 8 cookies per baking tray, spaced well. Do not flatten at all.
  5. Bake one tray at a time, for 12-14 minutes (I do 13). After removing the tray from the oven, firmly bang on the bench a few times, to help flatten the cookie a little. Sprinkle the top with flakey sea salt, if you have it. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the tray,. Then carefully transfer with a metal spatula to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 5 days. Best eaten on days 1-3.
