Chunky Peanut, Chocolate, and Cinnamon Cookies
In case you were wondering, yes I’m giving my Martha Stewart Cookies cookbook quite the workout lately. What can I say, some of our new favorite cookie recipes are coming out of this book! These were no exception. I had the urge to bake but didn’t have enough add-ins for some recipes. But I did have an abundance of peanuts! The peanuts and cinnamon combo really make this cookie stand out. Let’s just say these didn’t last long (although, really, what cookie does in this house?).
Makes 60 cookies.

2 cups flour

1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup roasted, salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Put butter and peanut butter in bowl of mixer on medium until combined, 2 minutes. Add sugars; mix 2 minutes. Mix in eggs. Gradually add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips, peanuts, and vanilla until well distributed. Refrigerate dough until slightly firm, 15 minutes.
