Chocolate and peanut butter, a combination so classic that it's hard to beat. If you like chocolate and peanut butter together like me, you'll be a fan of these Chocolate Peanut Butter Half and Half Cookies.
These cookies take all the best things about a chocolate cookie (the rich taste and crispy, yet chewy texture) and combine it with all of the best things about a peanut butter cookie (the salty, yet sweet taste and soft texture) to form the hybrid cookie of your dreams.
To get started with this recipe, you'll want to make sure you have everything measured out beforehand.
This is especially important because you're working with two different cookie doughs and you don't want to accidentally mix anything from one dough into the other dough.
To help make sure you keep things organized, you'll make the peanut butter cookie dough first from start to finish and let it chill in the fridge while you make the chocolate cookie dough from start to finish. Once both cookie doughs are ready, you are ready to scoop.
Next, line a baking sheet with parchment and use a scoop that is about 2 tablespoon to scoop both the chocolate and peanut butter dough.
I suggest scooping the peanut butter dough first followed by the chocolate to avoid getting any of the darker chocolate dough mixed into the lighter peanut butter dough.
Once all of your dough has been scooped, take one ball of chocolate dough and one ball of peanut butter dough and carefully press them together in your hand.
Use both hands to roll them into a larger ball and then roll that ball of dough in sugar before placing it back on the parchment so that the side with the seam is facing upwards.
Once all of your cookies have been formed, they are ready to head off to the oven.
Make sure to let them cool slightly before transferring them to a cooling rack. The cool thing is that each cookie comes out with a unique look depending on how the seam was formed. Enjoy!
