Oh and I promise there are some non-peanut butter related posts coming too...
Today is all about my favorite cookie recipe. This is my go-to recipe, these cookies turn out perfect every time, without fail, that is if they make it to the pan....
I don't feel guilty, this dough is just as addictive as the cookie.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 and 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 and 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a pan with baking sheet or parchment paper, set aside. In small bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt, set aside. In large bowl, beat shortening and peanut butter till creamy. Add in sugars and beat till fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla and mix throughly. Stir in flour mixture till combined and dough pull away from sides. Mix in chocolate chips till evenly distributed.
Drop by rounded teaspoon onto lined baking pan. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until slightly browned. Cool for two minutes on pan and cool completely on cooling rack.
I love the way these cookies look, they are little drops of heaven.
And I love this pic! It reminds me of the episode on Scrubs when J.D. calls for a "box of kittens, stat!".
When I get my peanut butter craving, I need a box of these cookies, STAT!
Hope y'all have a good weekend and happy baking!
