Recipe Ingredients

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Smart Balance® Blended Butter Sticks, softened
1/3 cup Smart Balance® Rich Roast Peanut Butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 oz milk chocolate chunks

Recipe Steps

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking soda and salt, stirring with a whisk.

Combine butter blend, peanut butter and sugars in a large bowl. Beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla. Reduce to low speed, and gradually add the flour mixture until just blended, scraping bottom and sides of bowl occasionally.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls, and place 1 inch apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 375° for 6 minutes. Remove from oven, and place 2 to 3 chocolate chunks in the center of each cookie, pressing down lightly to adhere. Bake 1 more minute or until golden on the bottom. Remove cookies from baking sheet and cool completely on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days, or freeze for up to 2 weeks.
