Peanut Butter Cookies

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • powdered sugar for garnish

Milk Chocolate Ganache

  • 3 cups milk chocoalte chips
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream


  • Preheat oven to 350°.While the oven is preheating make the cookie dough.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Scrape the sides, add in the eggs, vanilla and peanut butter. Beat until mixed.
  • Scrape the sides and add in the flour, baking powder and cornstarch. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Use a scoop to create equal sized cookies. Double scoop the cookie dough to make large bakery style cookies (more details given above).
  • Flatten the cookie dough by gently pressing the bottom of a drinking glass down on the center of the cookie dough. Repeat with remaining dough. The cookies will spread slightly so make sure to leave room. I tend to only put 6 cookies per pan.
  • Bake at 350° for 9-11 minutes or until the centers of the cookies have puffed up and are no longer glossy.Cool Completely.
  • Microwave the heavy cream until boiling (about 2 minutes) and then pour the chocolate chips into the hot cream.
  • Let the chocolate chips and hot cream sit for 5 mintues. After teh 5 minutes is over, stir until smooth.
  • Let the Ganache cool and thicken slightly and then spoon and spread ganache onto each cookie.
  • Refridgerate the cookies until ready to serve. About 20 or 30 minutes before serving, remove from the fridge and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  • Keep refrigerated!
