peanut butter chocolate chip
We are going up to visit Jessica this weekend at school. I asked her what she wanted us to bring…perhaps peanut butter or chocolate chip cookies? The short answer was ya. So I just combined the two. This recipe couldn't be easier. This is the doubled recipe from Clinton Street Baking Company.
Preheat to 325.
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup peanut butter ( smooth or chunky )
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 cups four
1 tsp baking power
1/2 tsp baking sode
1/2 tsp kosher salt
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a bowl with an electric mixture, beat the butter, peanut butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add the eggs and dry ingredients ( I put the dry ingredients in a bowl first and mixed with a whisk)
Roll the dough into a log (2 inches thick and 8 inches long or longer). Use a serrated knife and cut to make 1" slices.
Put each piece on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Using a fork, push down the cookie one way and then across the other way (cross hatch design). Sprinkle sugar over the top.
Bake for about 15-18 minutes or until browned. Yum.
