Servings20 cookies


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp coarse Kosher salt (if using table salt, use half the amount)
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350, and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine everything except the chocolate chips, using a wooden spoon to mix the ingredients until a soft dough forms.  Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Use a tablespoon-sized cookie scoop to portion out the dough, placing the dough balls two inches apart on the baking sheet.  Use the tines of a fork to lightly press down the dough balls in a criss-cross pattern.
  • Bake the cookies for 8 minutes, or until slightly puffed and cracked, but not overly brown.  Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Mix just half the salt into the dough, and sprinkle the other half over the top of the cookies for the perfect salty-sweet flavor.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container for two days, or freeze indefinitely.
