Peanut butter cookies get a boost with lots of peanuts, chocolate chunks, and cinnamon.

How to Make It

Step 1

Beat shortening at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; add peanut butter and sugars, beating well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition.

Step 2

Whisk together flour and next 4 ingredients in a small bowl. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in 1 cup peanuts and chocolate chunks.

Step 3

Shape dough into 2-inch balls (about 2 tablespoons dough each). Place on ungreased baking sheets, and flatten slightly.

Step 4

Bake, in batches, at 375° for 12 to 14 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on pan 1 to 2 minutes; remove to a wire rack.

Chef's Notes

Store extra cookies in an airtight container up to one week or freeze up to three weeks.

This is a rich, yummy cookie, though the batter seemed a bit dry so I added apple sauce and they came out very moist and delicious.

I liked the idea of adding peanuts and they were a nice touch. However the cookies came out too crunchy for my taste even though I let them cook for only about 12.5 minutes. They are also less sweet than the usual cookie. This recipe has potential with a little tweaking. I am going to drizzle them with white chocolate to enhance the flavor and presentation.
