Dark Chocolate Drizzled Peanut Butter Cookies with Sea Salt

Don’t look at me like that.
Your new years resolution wasn’t to eat less cookies, was it?
OK good. Because if it was, that’s definitely a resolution you want to start in February. February is a great month to start resolutions. People will be impressed. They won’t see it coming.

Peanut butter balls

Before we get down to it, I have to tell you, these are the softest, fluffiest, airiest cookies I’ve ever made. See how much they puffed up after baking? Like little clouds. Covered in chocolate. And sea salt.

Ingredients –

Peanut Butter Cookies
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
Sea salt

Dark Chocolate Drizzle
1 cup dark chocolate chips

Make the cookies.
1. Preheat the oven to 375. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cornstarch and salt.

2. In a smaller bowl using a hand mixer (or some elbow grease) mix together the butter, honey and brown sugar until creamy.

3. Then add the peanut butter to the butter mixture until just combine. Then add the vanilla and eggs, one at a time.

4. Add the dry flour mixture to the peanut butter/butter mixture, adding a little bit of the flour mixture at a time, until smooth and combine.

5. Roll the dough 1 1/2 teaspoon balls and place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or greased foil. Press the balls down with a fork in a cross pattern, and bake in preheated oven for about 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let the cookies cool completely.

Make the drizzle.
1. Over simmering water, melt the dark chocolate chips, stirring gently. Then, using a plastic bag with a snipped tip or a fork, drizzle chocolate over the cooled cookies.

2. Top with sea salt.

3. Screw your new years resolution. Life is short. Eat the cookie.
