Chocolate-Swirled Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Chocolate-Swirled Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Our kids most requested cookies are peanut butter and chocolate chip, so I came up with this recipe combining those favorite flavors. The two doughs swirled created a lovely pattern on the cookie. There's no need for additional decoration.—Lori Kesinger, Baker, Montana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch YIELD:78 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • CHOCOLATE DOUGH:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the peanut butter, butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Beat in egg. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  • 2. For the chocolate dough, in another large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  • 3. Divide each portion in half. Knead one peanut butter and one chocolate portion together 5-10 times or until it just begins to swirl. Shape into a 10-in. log. Wrap in plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining dough. Refrigerate 3-4 hours or until firm.
  • 4. Preheat oven to 350°. Unwrap and cut into 1/4-in. slices. Place 2 in. apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake 6-8 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
    Freeze option: Place wrapped logs in resealable plastic freezer bag; freeze. To use, unwrap frozen logs and cut into slices. If necessary, let dough stand a few minutes at room temperature before cutting. Bake as directed. Yield: about 6-1/2 dozen.

"Really like this recipe. Looks just like the picture and tastes great. Easy to make. Mine took 9 minutes to bake. Think I made them a little too big. Spread nicely. Will make again."

"A very unique taste on a peanut butter chocolate recipe, not saying that i didnt like one part of it though! if you want the nice swril the less you knead the better it gets. i liked these slightly undercooked but a great cookie! I like to spill the vanilla over the bowl because it makes it taste great! I would definetely reccomend these to anyone whos favorite dessert are cookies"

"This is delicious and highly creative, but this tastes more like a scone than a cookie. I'm not sure if it's because I did it wrong or it happens to taste like that."
