The humble cookie. How I’ve forgotten about you.
So simple. So delicious. (And only requires a few dishes!)
I’ve been thinking about making chocolate peanut butter cookies for weeks now. But I don’t usually make cookies – a single batch makes so many! And I do live by my lonesome. So when the lab scheduled a radiation safety refresher – I figured this was the perfect opportunity to whip a batch. What goes better with radiation than cookies? (Note: we weren’t actually using radiation, just discussing it).
Double chocolate, double peanut butter cookies
adapted from Gourmet
1 cup flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup Nutella (the original recipe calls for 1/2 cup PB, but I was running low so I substituted in the Nutella. I think it was a good choice.)
1 cup sugar
Beat in two eggs
Blend in dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips
Drop by heaping spoonfuls (I like my cookies on the large, chewy side).
Bake at 350 degrees for 13 minutes.
I must admit, I talked up these cookies before I had even made them- but they totally delivered. I mean, how can you go wrong with double chocolate and double peanut butter on a Friday afternoon?
Just make sure you have a tall glass of cold milk nearby.
