Scale

Ingredients

  • 225g salted butter, cubed and softened to room temperature 
  • 120g (1/2 cup) white caster sugar 
  • 1/4 cup (80g) + 1 tablespoon peanut butter, crunchy or smooth 
  • 3 Tbsp milk of choice 
  • 300g (2 cups) plain all purpose flour  
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup (130g) white chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 190ºC (375ºF). Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add softened cubed butter and with an electric hand beater, beat the butter for a few seconds until just creamy. 
  3. Add sugar and beat for 1 minute until light and creamy. Scraping down the sides with a spatula when needed. 
  4. Pour in peanut butter and milk, beat until well combined, light and fluffy, approx. 30 seconds. 
  5. Sift over flour and baking powder. Using your electric beater, beat mixture until flour is just combined into the creamed mixture. Use clean hands to bring the dough together and to incorporate any excess flour.
  6. Sprinkle over chocolate chips and knead into dough, then bring it altogether into a soft cookie dough ball. 
  7. Pick up approx. 1 tablespoon worth of dough and roll into a ball. Place on lined tray and flatten into a thick round disc with your palm. Repeat with remaining dough, leaving a 1-inch gap between each cookie to allow for spreading. 
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cookies are lightly golden around the edges. 
  9. Remove and cool on pan for 2 minutes. 
  10. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 
  11. Serve and enjoy!
