I was looking through my cook book before yoga and found some Peanut Butter Cookies I wanted to make. When I got home, M was visiting his G'ma at the hospital so I was bored. What better to do at 8pm on a Wednesday Night.... Bake!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Prep: 25 min Bake: 7 min per batch
Oven: 375 degrees Makes: about 36 cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
1-ish cup of chocolate chips*
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1) In a large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and baking powder. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Mix in chocolate chips. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. If necessary, cover and chill dough until easy to handle.
2) Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in additional granulated sugar to coat. Place 2 inches apart on a ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten by making crisscross marks with the lines of a fork. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 7 to 9 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Transfer to a wire rack to let cool.
*The original recipe doesn't call for chocolate chips. M and I have a horrible habit of eating chocolate chips and peanut butter when we are bored. I just used them to get rid of them.
