Bake Your Best Shot

Take a break from life, the bombardment of 24/7 news and bake a batch or two of Chocolate Chip Bourbon Cookies.

Yes, you read that right. A shot of Bourbon in your cookies is not only out-of-this-world-delicious, but it’s hard to be stressed and sad when you’re eating these cookies.

WARNING: These cookies are addictively moreish.

Put them in a tin and give them as a gift. These cookies freeze well.

1 tsp. baking soda

2 tsp. hot water

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

1/2 cup white sugar

1 cup light brown sugar, packed

2.      Dissolve the baking soda in the hot water, set aside.

6.      In a separate bowl, add: flour and chocolate chips, and mix to evenly distribute the chocolate chips.

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. 🙂
