It makes my day when I see new cookie recipe. I saw them this morning over at The Girl Who Ate Everything. Talk about some amazing recipes. This is a great site to visit if you want to find something new to try. The recipe I posted here has been doubled. They got rave reviews. Need a chocolate and a peanut butter fix? These will do the trick.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
3 cups flour
1 cup cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
3 cups sugar
1 cup peanut butter
2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter. Add the sugar and peanut butter and beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time. Add the vanilla and mix.
In another bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to the creamed mixture. Mix until combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix.
I like to make large cookies so I use a large cookie scoop. For large cookies, bake for 17 minutes. For traditional small sized cookies, bake for 10 minutes. Let cool before moving to a cooling rack because they will be soft when they come out of the oven. This recipe made about 30 large sized cookies.
*** Recipe Alert!: These are delicious right after you make them but after a couple of days they get hard as a rock! So eat them up quick.
