Baking makes me happy and I have wanted to bake since last week but I have been so busy with tax stuff I have done almost zero cooking. If you do no other cooking besides cookies your family won’t even care because homemade cookies are the best.
Peanut butter and chocolate just go together in my book. I love pretty much anything with the two together, like peanut butter and chocolate ice-cream, reeses peanut butter cups, chocolate cake with peanut-butter frosting(I need to share that recipe sometime) well you get it. This is an orignal recipe of mine and I feel it’s the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter. Make sure you have milk in the fridge because this is defiantly one cookie you’ll want to have a big cold glass with.
Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies
1 cup butter softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 T. milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup of un-sweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 12 0z. bag peanut butter chips
1 1/2 cup m&m candies
Step 1: Cream together the butter, shortening and sugars.
Step 2: Add eggs, vanilla, peanut butter, and milk mix well.
Step 3: If you are using a large kitchen aid mixer then add the remainder ingredients except the chips and m&m’s mix until combined well. If doing by hand add a cup of flour, baking soda and powder at a time and so it won’t get too hard to mix. Add the chips and m&m’s all at once and mix by hand.
Step 4: Drop by tablespoon full onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes.
