The first cookie recipe I posted on this blog was a peanut butter one and my most popular cookie is the thick chocolate chip one. So what could be better than a beautiful blend of the two? 🙂 Also, peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven!
These cookies are super easy to make, require just some basic ingredients and taste phenomenal!
Chilling the dough for at least an hour helps to get all the flavours to combine well and also ensures the cookies don’t spread as much. The result : big, thick, chewy, peanut-y cookies with little pools and nibbles of chocolate thrown in. *Drooooool*
I use about two tablespoons worth of dough for one cookie and roll it nicely to form a ball. As it bakes, the dough slowly expands to form a golden brown cookie with crispy edges and a thick, chewy center. It’s packed with flavour!
I sent some across to my landlady K and she was thrilled! Such large, dense, flavour bomb cookies are not usually found easily, she said. Yay! 😀
My friend, H, devoured around 3-4 in a rather short span of time! I’m always happy when someone loves the food I make and it disappears that soon 🙂
Dunk these in a glass of milk or have them as is, they are truly great! Not too sweet, the right kind of buttery, crispy on the edge and moist on the inside – true love! Make these now, I Say! 😀
