These Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies are a homemade version of Levain Bakery's legendary cookies! These were by far and away my favorite cookies when we visited Levain in NYC.


  • 1 cup butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup dark baking cocoa (regular is okay)
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1⅓ cup peanut butter chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 410ºF.
  2. Using a stand mixer: cream together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar.
  3. Add the eggs one and a time and mix in between additions.
  4. Mix in the cocoa powder, cake flour, all purpose flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt until dough forms.
  5. Fold in the peanut butter chips.
  6. Scoop 1/4 cup of dough on to a cookie sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper (you can fit about 6 cookies on a baking sheet).
  7. Bake for 8 minutes (this should leave the centers slightly underdone).
  8. Transfer immediately to a cooling rack to stop the baking process.
