What good is a delicious dinner without a delicious dessert?! I let Craig choose Saturday’s dessert, and he chose peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. A great choice, I must say!
As someone who absolutely LOVES any chocolate and peanut butter combination, I think it’s pretty dang hard to go wrong with any peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe. Still, this is the one I used, and they turned out spectacularly!
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or marine, softened
1/2 cup chunky or smooth peanut butter (I went with smooth since the chocolate chips would add texture, anyway.)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375°. Cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugars until light. Add the egg, and mix until fluffy. Blend the flower, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. Mix these dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Mix in the chocolate chips. Drop cookie dough by overflowing teaspoons onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 9-12 minutes at 375°. Let them cool long enough that you won’t scald your mouth, and enjoy!
