Tonight was tree decorating night, so while I wrestled with the lights (I’m picky, so it is my job) Mr. Heather whipped up a batch of cookies. These are good without being overwhelming either on the chocolate or peanut butter side.
- 1 1/8 cups unsalted butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 10 oz peanut butter chips
Beat the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla and beat until incorporated.
In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
Slowly mix into the butter and sugar, being sure to scrape the sides of the bowl. Gently stir in the peanut butter chips.
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Drop the batter by rounded tablespoon onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes. Cool for two – five minutes on the baking sheet before allowing to cool completely on a wire rack.
