Peanut Butter choc Chip Cookies

I was rather bored today, so i decided i would bake some cookies :) I was round at a girlfriends the other day and she made some, ever since then i have wanted to eat more. So i made some of my own :)
I wanted to find the easy recipe, which just has Peanut Butter, Sugar and an egg..but i couldn't seem to find one that sounded good. So i used one from a blog a frequently Visit Smitten Kitchen, you check them out and see the recipe here.

Well they were really easy to make, and didn't take long at all, they would take even less time if your oven isn't as stupid as mine (and is an old piece of junk with only ONE shelf!!) Had to do it in three lots.
Makes about 36.

Here are my photos;

Here is the Recipe from Smitten Kitchen

Peanut Butter Cookies
Adapted from the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips
For sprinkling: 1 tablespoon sugar, regular or superfine

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). 
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, the baking soda, the baking powder, and the salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the butter and the peanut butter together until fluffy. Add the sugars and beat until smooth. Add the egg and mix well. Add the milk and the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat thoroughly. Stir in the peanut butter and chocolate chips. 
  4. Place sprinkling sugar — the remaining tablespoon — on a plate. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls into the sugar, then onto ungreased cookie sheets, leaving several inches between for expansion.
  5.  Using a fork, lightly indent with a crisss-cross pattern (I used the back of a small offset spatula to keep it smooth on top), but do not overly flatten cookies. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Do not overbake. Cookies may appear to be underdone, but they are not.
  6. Cool the cookies on the sheets for 1 minute, then remove to a rack to cool completely.

Well i better go cook some tea for hubby and me..its 8pm!! LOL
