Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had a notion for something with peanut butter in it.  I buy the Whole Earth Crunchy original peanut butter, but haven't had any for some time.  While blog hopping round the cooking blogs, I saw some muffins with pb and choc chips, I decided not to make those but went in search of a cookie recipe featuring the same ingredients.  

 Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (from Southern Food About.Com ) 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) 125g butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup chunky or smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 375Ā°F/190C/Fan oven 170C/Gas Mark 5. Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light. Add the egg and mix until fluffy.
Blend the flour, baking powder, soda and salt together well. Add these dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Add the chocolate chips.
Drop cookie dough by teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

 It was a dream of a mix to make and came out just the right texture.
No fancy fiddling making into balls and getting all sticky, just wallop down a teaspoon of dough and put it in the oven.

As usual my cookies varied from slightly over done to slightly underdone with some perfect ones!  I'm hoping that my new cooker will cook more evenly, I think it is because the door seal on the old oven has really past it's best so heat escapes from the front of the oven.

As there were really far too many cookies for us to eat (we would have eaten them all because they are delicious, but it wouldn't have been good for us) I made up a little package to take to a Party Lite party I had been invited to last night.  This is where crafting meets cooking!  I'm even beginning to quite like my own handwriting!

The cookies got 5 stars on the About.com site and I would agree.

Oooo those look and sound scrummy Janice. I like the variety of 'done' in them sometimes you just want more crunch!! xx

Janice.... Oh Janice.... why are you tempting me so? Thing is, if I make them, I might not have the restraint to pack some up to give away...

I am definitely trying my hand at this recipe. When I saw peanut butter and choc chips, I knew it would be the best snack to have on the ski lift!
Nice to make your acquaintance!
