peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies

yesterday a very bad cookie craving hit me while i was in my 10-hour-essay-hibernation mode. the only biscuits around were oreos… i had 5 with a glass of cold milk, but that didn’t hit the spot. so after the essay was done, i baked a batch of these as a reward for myself. needless to say, i had a few and went to bed a happy girl.


115g butter, softened
115g peanut butter
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla essence
220g chopped dark chocolate/chocolate chips

1. preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius. grease 3 baking sheets. beat butter and peanut butter on high speed for around 30 seconds.

2. add 1/2 cup flour, sugars, egg, baking powder, baking soda and vanilla essence. beat until combined, then add remaining flour and chocolate. mix until well combined.

3. shape dough into 1 inch balls and flatten slightly with fork. bake for 8-10 minutes. cool on baking sheet for a couple of minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.

these were delicious; the texture was a cross between crispy and chewy. even the boy who doesn’t take to peanut butter enjoyed them. the taste of the peanut butter came through wonderfully, not too overpowering and neither was it too subtle.
