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. 🙂

To celebrate the launch of our new cook book, I am going to share one of the recipes that is featured in the book; Treadmill Cookies.

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.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

cookies-2

Ingredients:

cup un-salted butter, softened
cup light brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup white sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chunks -or- chocolate chips; semi-sweet -or- milk chocolate (your choice)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or use a non-stick baking sheet).
  3. You’ll need two bowls; large one for dry and and smaller one for wet ingredients.
  4. In the large bowl, sift together; flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  5. In the smaller bowl, cream together the butter, brown and white sugars, and stir until the mixture is smooth and creamy, then stir in the vanilla, and slowly add the beaten eggs and blend well together.
  6. Stir the dry ingredients in the creamy mixture until just blended (do not over mix).
  7. Mix in the quick oats and chocolate chips.
  8. Stir enough (not too much stirring) to get everything evenly distributed.
  9. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto baking sheet.
  10. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes.
  11. Cool cookies on the baking sheet for five minutes, then transfer onto a cookie wire rack to cool completely….but, it’s always nice to pinch a warm cookie before they are completely cooled.

These cookies make a great contribution for a cookie exchange.
