Those Cookies Though

Okay! So about those delicious cookies. This bad boy came out of my mother’s handwritten recipe book so as for where it initially came from, not a clue. One thing I do know is that they are EASY PEASY and yummy to boot. The only difficult part is not eating them all in one go.


What You Will Need:
1 cup of Peanut Butter (To try and keep things in a healthy direction, I opted for Adam’s All Natural)
1/2 cup of butter, softened
1 egg
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp Milk
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine peanut butter, both sugars and butter in a mixing bowl and cream until blended. Beat in milk, egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine flour, salt and baking powder. Combine and mix with the peanut butter mixture and mix until smooth. On an ungreased baking sheet (or use parchment paper) spoon out tablespoons of the cookie mixture and roll into balls. Place them two inches apart as the baking powder will make them rise and expand. I safely with between 6 and 8 balls on a making sheet, depending on the sheets size. Oh and word to the wise, the better the baking sheet, the less likely it is the bottoms of your cookies will burn. Press each ball down with a fork and bake for 10 minutes. I recommend baking each sheet separately, on its own. This takes more time and obviously more energy from your oven having it on longer, but it will result in a better quality cookie, I promise you! Remove from oven and allow to cool on cooling rack for ten minutes. These babies are best when they are soft and warm so do not let them sit too long without a quality taste test!
