Ingredients
1 egg
1 stick unsalted butter, room temp
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 ¾ cup cake flour*
2 tsp. cornstarch
¼ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. baking soda
1 2/3 cups peanut butter chips
Salt to taste

*must be cake flour- do not substitute

Frosting Ingredients
1/3 cup peanut butter (creamy)
¼ cup unsalted butter, room temp
1 ½ cup powdered sugar
Salt to taste
Sprinkles

Instructions
In a mixer, cream the sugar and butter. Add in the brown sugar, egg, and vanilla, beating for 5 minutes or until fluffy. Scrape the sides down. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients – leave out the peanut butter chips for now. Mix together and slowly add into the wet mixture. Make sure not to over-mix. Line a baking pan with parchment and scoop the dough onto the sheet. Chill the dough, covered, for at least 3 hours.

When you’re ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350º and uncover your dough. Pop the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 8 minutes. The cookies should still be slightly doughy-looking in the center. While the cookies are cooling, make the frosting. In a mixer, beat together the peanut butter and butter until fluffy. Add in the salt and sugar, beating only until the ingredients are combined. If needed, add in some milk to thin out the frosting. Frost your cooled cookies, top with sprinkles, and enjoy your treat!
