I was craving cookies.
I was craving cookies BAD.
It was mandatory for me to get cookies in my belly RIGHT NOW.
So...what would a crafty girl do?!?
Go on Pinterest and find a cookie recipe that "speaks" to her.
And that I did.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1/2 teaspoons baking soda
8 tablespoons of salted butter, melted and cooled
6 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter, melted and cooled
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Add butter and peanut butter to a microwave safe bowl, and heat in 30 second increments until melted.
Let cool completely.
Mix the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
In another bowl, mix the cooled butter/peanut butter and sugars until they are combined.
Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and stir until mixed.
Gradually add flour and mix until a dough forms – it will look crumbly at first, but it will come together.
**If necessary, add 1-2 teaspoons of milk, but I did not need this.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Shape the dough into a ball the size of a golf ball.
Place on a baking sheet two inches apart and bake for 10 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown.
The centers should be soft and puffy.
Do not over bake.
They were a hit at my friend Ang's housewarming party too!
