Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough!!

Author: Cassie Stevens

The best part of making cookies is the cookie dough, and let me tell you it was hard to keep myself from eating all of it. They baked up to be fantastic cookies too. My husband’s favorite cookie is the peanut butter cookie, and mine (if I had to choose) would be the chocolate chip cookie. So this cookie is the best of both worlds for us. Soft, and lightly chewy with a gush of ooey gooey chocolate with every bite.   HEAVEN!!!

This recipe was amazing. I will be saving this one for the heirloom cookbook for my family for sure. I made two and a half dozen cookies from this recipe, which only filled my cookie jar half full.  Of course, I had to try them as soon as they were done baking to make sure they were still amazing, and they were. So about two dozen made it into the cookie jar.

So here is what you need:

1 1/4 cups flour

1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

3/4 cup white granulated sugar

1/2 cup butter softened (1 stick)

1 large egg ( at room temp)

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 Tbsp whole milk

1/2 tsp Baking soda

3/4 tsp Baking Powder

1 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Here is what to do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl beat the peanut butter and butter until smooth. Next add the sugars and mix well. Beat in the large egg then add the vanilla extract and milk then set aside. Sift flour and baking powders together and add to wet mix. Mix well then gently mix in chocolate chips. Scoop into balls and roll in sugar and place 12 to a baking sheet. Gently press down cookie balls with a fork diagonally and place in oven. Bake at 350 for ten to twelve minutes. cookies might appear to be undone but trust me they are done. Let cool on a wire rack. ENJOY!!
