peanut butter - chocolate chunk cookies

the goods:

1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup peanut butter
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup packed dark-brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
8 ounces semisweet chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda; set aside. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat peanut butter, butter, and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beat until smooth. With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture, beating just until combined.

Stir in chocolate chunks.

Drop dough by heaping tablespoons, 1 inch apart, onto a baking sheet.

Bake until golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.
