Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


Wow, things have been mighty slow around LSM.  Sorry.  For some reason I haven't felt much like blogging lately.  I think I tired myself out a bit prior to Easter, so maybe a break was just what I needed.  And you know, with this nice weather we've been having, I haven't really wanted to sit indoors typing away on the computer.  You know whatta I mean?

I've debated with myself how much I should actually be blogging.  Sometimes there are recipes I've tried that I can't wait to share with you all, so I crank out the posts.  But other times, I feel like I'm putting out posts only because I feel like I need to and not because I want to.  But I am constantly reminding myself that blogging is strictly a hobby and not my job.  I don't get any money from blogging, I do it because I love writing, I love browsing through the incredible recipes from fellow bloggers, and because I thoroughly enjoy sharing recipes with all of you.  Simple yet true.


So to the point, I shouldn't feel guilty for not posting every single day, right?  Right.  Great, that's settled.

Aside from the pity party I just had, I do have a classic recipe to share today.  And the only way I can really describe the cookie nostalgia is to take you back to those elementary school days.  You know, the times when everyone looked forward to recess or competed for the flashiest lunch box or who had the best snacks.  You remember those days.  Well, one thing that always stuck in my mind from my childhood days was the cookies.  Ooo, those cafeteria cookies.  The chewy, soft, cookies that, for one reason or another, I could only find in the cafeteria.  I don't know what they did to them, but they were downright addicting.  A bit similar to Chewy Keebler cookies but bigger and better.  Does everyone know what I'm talking about?  I hope so.  Because these are it. 


So if you're looking for a wonderfully classic peanut butter and chocolate combo, you should look no further.  These cookies will take you right back to the good ol' days when all we had to worry about was our spelling test the next day.  Well...at least I worried.  But regardless, these will getcha  .


Ingredients:
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1-1/4 c. all purpose flour
1/2 to 1 tbsp. milk
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
  1. In a large bowl, beat together butter and peanut butter on medium to high speed for 30 seconds.  Add sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and baking powder.  Beat until combined.  Add egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined.  Beat in flour.  Add milk, just enough to make dough moist and creamy.  Stir in chocolate chips just until incorporated.  If necessary, cover and chill dough for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. Heat oven to 375F and spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.  Drop cookies by scant teaspoonfuls onto baking sheet.  Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until bottoms are light brown.  Transfer to wire rack to let cool. 
Yield: 3 dozen cookies

  17. I would add more peanut butter, maybe a 1/4 c. more to this recipe. They weren't peanut buttery enough for me! They were very chewy and soft though.
