I've made these small-batch peanut butter cookies because a full batch of cookies can feel overwhelming when you're baking for one. These cookies are soft inside and crisp on the outside, peanut buttery, and chocolatey making them a great dessert.
Once butters and sugars are creamed, add one egg. Beat until just incorporated. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and a pinch of salt to the mixture. Beat at a low speed until just incorporated. Turn up speed if needed.
While cookies are baking, prepare chocolate by pouring chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30-45 seconds. Remove when almost all chips are melted and chocolate is glossy. Stir again and it should be smooth.
Remove cookies from oven, let cool for 3-5 minutes on the pan. Using a spoon or rubber spatula, spoon a dollop of chocolate on each cookie and spread out to cover the top of the cookie. Transfer to a cooling rack. Cool completely.
