I got this recipe from Bon Appetit--the RSVP column, which attributes them to The Inn at Cedar Falls in Logan, OH--but the epicurious site doesn't appear to have it, so here it is:
2 1/2 c AP flour
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c unsalted butter, room temp
1 1/4 c creamy peanut butter
1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
1 1/2 c semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- Whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl to blend.
- Beat butter, peanut butter, and both sugars in large bowl until well blended.
- Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each.
- Add dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Form dough into 1-inch balls and place on baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart. Flatten with the back of a fork, making criss-cross pattern. (Note: This step is important if you don't want weird-looking little lumps instead of nice, shapely cookies.)
- Bake until dry on top and golden brown on bottom, about 10 minutes. Transfer to racks and cool.
