Ingredients

Cookie Dough:

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup peanut butter

1 ¼ cups brown sugar

½ cup white sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

½ cup cornstarch

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Sugar for rolling cookie dough in

Chocolate Drizzle:

2/3 cup Semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 tablespoon butter, if needed to thin

Roasted Salted Peanuts, crushed

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375F degrees, and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a stand mixer, beat the butter and peanut butter on high, until smooth and incorporated.

Add the sugars, and beat on high again for 3-5 minutes, until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and

beat for 1 minute more.

Mix in the flour, cornstarch, salt, and baking soda, just until combined. Put the sugar in a bowl,

to roll the dough in. Measure about ¼ cup of dough and roll it in your hand, into a ball. Put it

into the bowl with the sugar and roll it, covering it completely with sugar. Place it on the

baking sheet and smash with a glass, dipped in sugar as well, so it doesn’t stick. Be sure the

cookies are 2 inches apart.

Bake for about 10 minutes, or until cookies are just golden. Remove and let them sit on the

baking sheets for 5-10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. When

cooled, make the chocolate drizzle. Place the chocolate chips in a glass measuring container

and microwave in 20 second increments, just until starting to melt. Add butter as needed and

stir to smooth. Drizzle over the cookies and sprinkle with the crushed peanuts.
