Soon-to-be World Famous Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

As I was preparing to upload this blog post, I asked my husband if he had any suggestions for an attention-grabbing blog title for this cookie recipe.

His answer: “The word cookie grabs my attention.”

As you can see, I didn’t go with his suggestion and asked people on Facebook for their input. Thanks to Nadine Winningham for coming up with the blog title.

 

Selena’s Fantasmic Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

1

 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter (unsalted butter), softened (NOT melted, just softened)
1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy, your choice)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg, beaten
2 cups milk chocolate chips (of if you prefer dark chocolate, your choice)
Confectioner sugar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or if you don’t have parchment, use a non-stick baking sheet.

In a bowl add: flour, baking soda, salt, chocolate chips, mix well and put aside.

Using a hand mixture, or a bowl with a big spoon, add these ingredients together: butter, peanut butter, white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, beaten egg, and mix until you get a creamy texture.

Gradually add in the flour mixture, stirring to incorporate the flour, but try not to stir too much, as you don’t want cake consistency. Just enough that all the flour is mixed in with the creamy mixture.

Drop the dough by rounding tablespoon onto the cookie sheet. With a fork (if you want some ridges) or with the flat part of the back of a spoon, press down lightly.

Once all your cookies are on the sheet, dust lightly with a sprinkling of confectionary sugar.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until the edges are set but the centers will still be a bit soft.

Let them cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer them on to a rack to cool completely.

Enjoy, because cookies make everything better. 🙂

I named these oatmeal cookies with a twist (chocolate chips, butterscotch & peanut butter), Treadmill Cookies, because after you taste one, you’ll want two, three, four and more.

Your taste buds will thank you, your thighs will extract revenge. But alas, there’s always the treadmill to balance it all out.

Ingredients:

1 cup butter, room temperature

1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup white sugar

2 eggs, well beaten

1 TBSP vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp nutmeg

3 cups oatmeal (old fashioned, not instant)

1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

1/2 cup butterscotch chips

1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Directions:

Preheat to 350 F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cream butter, brown and white sugars and vanilla extract together until mixture is creamy and smooth.

In a separate bowl combine until well blended, the following: flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger & nutmeg.

Add the dry Ingredients: to the creamy mixture and mix well.

Add eggs to mixture and stir.

Add oatmeal and chocolate/butterscotch/peanut butter chips and combine all Ingredients: together. Be careful not to over-stir, as too much stirring in a cookie recipe can make cookies to become cakey.

Form mixture into balls and place on cookie sheet.

Bake 10 – 13 minutes (depends on your oven, so keep an eye on them).

Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes.

Transfer onto a wire rack.

Scrumptious, Sweet & Salty Christmas Bites

Please welcome Real Estate Woman-preneur, Nancy Pugliese to the blog as she shares this easy-to-prepare, wonderfully delicious, chocolaty treat. They are addictive, hence the title “Cracker Crack.”

Saltine Cracker Toffee (aka “Cracker Crack”)

 

1

 

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Total time from start to finish: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

40 (or more if needed) Saltine Crackers (salted)
1 Cup Butter (unsalted)
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Cups of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (or milk or dark chocolate chops, your choice)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400F

Line a cookie sheet with as many of the Saltine Crackers that it will take to fill your cookie sheet (approx. 40).

Please note: Do not overlap and do not place the crackers on top of each other.

Add butter and brown sugar in a pot, stir mixture, and bring to a boil,. Once the mixture is boiling, continue stirring and boiling for three minutes. Mixture should be a deep, caramel color.

Remove pot from heat and immediately pour the mixture over the Saltine Crackers, ensuring that every single cracker is covered by the caramel mixture.

Bake in preheated oven for 5 to 6 minutes. The crackers should look all bubbly.

Remove tray from the oven and immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top, and let sit for a few minutes to allow chocolate to melt. Once chocolate has melted, spread the melted chocolate to cover all the crackers.

**Optional** You can add chopped nuts on top.

Allow the crackers to cool completely, then break into pieces, or you can use a knife to cut them into pieces.

Enjoy the fruits of your labor. You may not want to share with your family and friends once you taste one…that’s okay, I won’t judge you.
