Chunky Peanut, Chocolate and Cinnamon Cookies

another try

These cookies were easy to make and very yummy. A good spin on our old favorites. Plus, I love cinnamon. We made these for Andy's housewarming party. It's originally from Martha Stewart's Cookies.

What's in it:
2 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 C butter, room temperature
1/2 C smooth peanut butter
1 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 C semi sweet chocolate chips
2/3 C roasted, salted peanuts, chopped
2 tsp vanilla extract

How's it's made:
Preheat oven to 350. Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a small bowl.

Put butter and peanut butter in a large bowl and cream together (you may need to soften butter more). Mix on medium until creamed. Add sugars and cream. Mix in eggs. Gradually add dry mixture, mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips, peanuts and vanilla. Refrigerate dough until slightly firm, about 15 minutes. (I forgot to do this and was fine).

Roll dough into balls and space on cookie sheet. Press each ball to flatten slightly. Bake until just golden, about 13 minutes, rotating halfway through. Cool on wire racks.
