Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

26 Feb

*slap* *slap* I am slapping my hands for you, dear readers. I have been a TERRIBLE blogger. And I sincerely hope you have not starved in the meantime. I hope you do not only eat the food we put on this blog because you would be a) dead from not eating in a month and b) 1,000 pounds since we only seem to put desserts on here.

And today is no exception! Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies! We tend eat things really fast in our suite, so when it comes to sweets we try to share them with our friends so we do not get diabetes. We thought about sharing these, the conversation went a little like this:
Me: These are really good! We should offer some to our friends!
Suitemates: Yes! Totally! We should!
*Collective gulp* as we all stared at the plate full of crumbs.
Me: Or not.
Recipe after the jump!

So yeah, they’re good. And I guess they could sustain you, because nuts are protein. Recipe from Epicurious.

1.75 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

.5 teaspoon baking soda

.5 teaspoon coarse kosher salt

.5 cup plus .3 cup powdered sugar

.5 cup plus 1 tablespoon (packed) dark brown sugar

6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature

.5 cup creamy peanut butter

.5 cup vegetable oil

1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 large egg

1.3 cups (about 8 ounces) milk chocolate chips


Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2: Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, kosher salt in medium bowl.

Step 3: Using electric mixer, beat powdered sugar, dark brown sugar, and butter in large bowl to blend.

Step 4: Add hydrogenated peanut butter (creamy, like Skippy); beat until creamy.

Step 5: Gradually beat in vegetable oil and vanilla extract, then egg.

Step 6: Add dry ingredients; mix just until blended. Stir in milk chocolate chips.

Step 7: Drop cookie dough by level tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake cookies until puffed and golden brown, about 12 minutes. Cool slightly, then transfer cookies to rack to cool completely.
