This is a great cookie for all our lovers of peanut butter and chocolate chunks. I love the chunky peanut butter and peanuts that add more crunchiness to these cookies.

½ cup margarine, softened
½ cup shortening
1 cup chunky peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup salted peanuts
2 cups chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with silpat mats or parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together margarine, shortening, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs, one at a time. On low speed, add flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Stir in peanuts and chocolate chunks.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes before removing to wire rack to finish cooling.

    • They make transfree crisco and it makes the cookies crispier. You can use the earth balance or some oil as a substitute if you do not want to use the shortening.
