Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I can thank my friend Joanne for this recipe, she made these cookies this morning and they looked so yummy and who doesn't love peanut butter and chocolate?. Where I live in Australia we don't have peanut butter cookies so I was eager to make a batch up.. I don't have a regular oven as you all know if you follow my little blog. so getting them cooked in my little bench top oven was a little tricky, but where there is a will there is a way haha..I admit mine don't look as good as hers did but taste great and I know what is in them compared to the store bought Cookies with loads of numbers as ingredients listed. So give these a go, the kids will love them and my fussy friend loved them too so I know they are good.

This full recipe makes a lot of cookies. I halved it and got 34.

 What you Need:

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups chocolate chips (or 1 cup of chocolate and 1 cup of peanut butter, or your other chip of choice)

 What to do:

Cream butter and sugars with mixer.
1. Add peanut butter and mix well.
2. Add eggs and blend with mixer.
3. In separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt.
4. Add to the wet mixture a little at a time till dough forms.
5. Fold in the chocolate chips.
6.Let dough rest in fridge for at least one hour (I wrap mine in wax paper)
7.Preheat oven to 350 Spoon dough into balls onto cookie sheet covered with parchment paper and flatten with fork. Bake 10-13 minutes.

  1. YAY! I'm so glad that you liked them! And I agree, making your own is so much better than store bought. Whenever I eat a store bought cookie, to me it tastes like chemicals. I used to love oreos and now I think they are gross.
