For a holiday cookie that pleases the adults as much as the kids, these classic peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are dressed up with sprinkled smoked salt to create a more complex and interesting version of an already tasty treat.
1 stick of butter (4 oz), softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Pinch of Kiawe Smoked Salt
Cream the butter, sugars and peanut butter until smooth.
Mix in the egg and vanilla extract.
Incorporate the flour by adding slowly while mixing until just combined with uniform consistency.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Using a 1-ounce ice cream scoop, scoop the dough into balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Sprinkle the smoked salt on top of the cookies.
Bake the cookies in a pre-heated oven at 325°F for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
