Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls

Makes 12-18 dough balls

  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 3/4 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 3/4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 t. vanilla extract
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 3/4 t. salt
  • 1 c. whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c. peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 c. chocolate chips
1. Using a stand mixer, beat butter, peanut butter, sugars and vanilla until fully incorporated.
2. In a separate bowl, combine baking powder, baking soda, salt and flours. Add dry mixture to the mixer bowl a little at a time and mix until a dough forms.
3. Add your chips. Combine and chill dough for 30 minutes.
4. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Scoop dough with a mini ice cream scoop (or your fingers) and place balls on a cookie sheet.
5. Bake for 10-12 minutes.  They’ll still be soft and look much like they did going in, but don’t overbake.  Let the dough balls rest on the pan for a minute before transferring to a cooling rack.
