The Best Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

One night after dinner, my daughter said she was craving peanut butter cookies.  Her favorite are the soft ones from Cookie Corner.  I wasn’t able to find a copycat recipe, but I did find one by The Novice Chef called The Best Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies.  The original recipe can be found here.
First in a medium bowl, mix 1 1/4 cup flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt.  This recipe calls for unsalted butter, but I only use salted butter so I skip the added salt.  In another bowl, using a mixer, cream 1/2 cup peanut butter (we used crunchy) with 1/2 cup butter, 3/4 cup brown sugar (firmly packed), and 1/4 cup sugar.  Once the mixture is light and fluffy, mix in 1 egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.  Add in the flour mix about a third at a time and mix until you get a dough.  
We used a large cookie scooper to scoop out the dough.  We added different toppings like marshmallows, chopped peanuts, and chocolate chips.  Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.  Leave on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
The cookies turned out AMAZING and really lived up to its name.  After taste testing, I liked the chocolate chip version the best while the kids loved, loved the marshmallow ones.  Super fun and super quick to whip up.    
Getting creative with our toppings.

Leftover dough equals one delicious gigantic cookie!
