I haven’t really been trying anything new lately, so I decided to make a peanut butter chocolate cookie. They definitely turned out really soft and chewy, and have a strong peanut butter taste; they’re not bad, but they can be better. I can’t quite figure out what exactly needs to be fixed with them, so hopefully my volleyball team will have suggestions!
CHOCO PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES (18)
- ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
- 70g natural peanut butter
- ¼ cup packed brown sugar
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ½ tsp. vanilla
- ½ cup flour
- 2 tbsp. cocoa
- ¼ tsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. baking powder
- ¼ tsp. baking soda
- 2.5 tbsp. milk
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- Cream together butter and peanut butter until well mixed, and add sugars.
- Add vanilla to butter mixture.
- Add flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder, and baking soda to butter mixture. Mix thoroughly (should be a bit clumpy).
- Add milk (slightly more or less as needed) until mixture holds together well.
- Drop tablespoon sized balls on an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake for 8-10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through.
They were a hit at volleyball. Apparently they do taste good, but I’m just really critical. That said, I think I would halve the salt next time. And add some chocolate chunks.
