  • Step 2

    Melt all of the butter until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl.

  • Step 4

    Beat the eggs in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until light and pale yellow and gradually add sugar, butter, and vanilla while beating. Add the peanut butter and mix until combined.

  • Step 5

    While mixing slowly, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, in two additions. Mix until just it’s absorbed. Fold in the peanuts and chocolate pieces.

  • Step 6

    Divide the dough evenly into thirds, and put each portion in the center of a baking sheet. Shape the dough into logs about 2 inches wide and 15 inches long. Bake until set and brown around the edges, about 25-30 minutes. Cool logs on baking sheets for about 10 minutes.

  • Step 7

    Lower the oven temperature to 325 F and transfer logs to a cutting board. Cut the logs crosswise with a knife into 1/2 inch thick cookies. Place cookies cut side down on the baking sheets. Bake until crisp, about 8 minutes, flip the cookies over, and bake for another 8 minutes.

  • Step 8

    Eat and enjoy.
