  • Using an electric mixer, beat peanut butter, brown sugar, butter, honey, egg, and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir dry ingredients into the peanut butter mixture in 2 additions. Stir in chopped chocolate.

  • Cover and refrigerate until dough is firm and no longer sticky, about 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter 2 heavy large baking sheets.

  • With hands, roll 1 heaping tablespoonful of dough for each cookie into 1 3/4 inch diameter ball. Arrange cookies on prepared baking sheets, spacing 2 1/2 inches apart.

  • Bake cookies until puffed, beginning to brown on top and still very soft to touch, about 12 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Using metal spatula, transfer cookies to rack and cool completely. (Can be made 2 days ahead. Store in airtight container at room temperature.)

These were very good! I made the following slight changes: creamy peanut butter instead of crunchy because we're not crazy about nuts in things, white whole wheat flour for 1 cup of the all-purpose, a little over 1 cup of semi-sweet chips for the chunks, and I upped the vanilla to 1 T. instead of 1 t.

Everybody I know who loves a peanutbutter cookie loves these. These are the first to disappear. Cookes bake up moist are not flat. Read More

Delicious and moist! I used a little more peanut butter and more chocolate chunks baked for 10-1/2 minutes and made sure they were pretty flat before I put them in the oven (they don't spread much). I didn't have time to refrigerate them which is probably why the shorter bake time worked. Talk about a yummy cookie! Thanks! Read More

This dough was so easy to work with. It was easy to form and made beautifully shaped cookies. I love the addition of the oats. My family only requested that I use milk chocolate next time. This recipe makes way more cookies than it claims. Read More

Great cookies! Made some alterations that came out fabulous. I added 1/2 tsp. coconut extract and 1 tsp. ground cinnamon. Also I combined equal amounts of creamy peanut butter and marshmallow cream and stuffed the cookies before baking. Absolutely decadent! Read More
