Step 1

Combine the bread flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium-large bowl and whisk to fully incorporate the ingredients. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the unsalted butter, granulated sugar and light brown sugar on medium to medium high speed until fully incorporated and lightened in color, about 3 to 5 minutes, scraping the bowl, as needed.

Step 3

Add the vegetable oil and vanilla and beat until incorporated, another 1 or 2 minutes, again, scraping as needed. On low speed, add the egg and egg yolks all at once and mix until just combined, scraping as needed. Add the creamy peanut butter and mix until just combined, again.

Step 4

With the mixer still on low, add the dry ingredients all at once, and mix until only some of the flour is incorporated into the wet batter (less than 1 minute). Turn off the machine and continue mixing by hand with a rubber spatula.

Step 5

Step 7

Place the cookie sheet on a cooling rack and lightly press each cookie with a spatula to flatten. let cool and enjoy. Cookies will keep at room temp tightly covered for up to 3 days or up to a month frozen.
