You may have noticed the blog entries had tapered off.... well my theory is....this little baby "B" is sucking all my creative, memory, thinking cells right out. Hopefully he'll pop out a genius! Since I've reached the hopefully over half way point (19 weeks) he seems to be only taking about half... So we're back in business...
While Mia was in school my little helper Owen and I made these:
Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
1 cup Butter
½ cup Sugar
1 cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1 teaspoon Salt
8 ounces Semi-sweet Chocolate, Melted And Cooled
2 whole Eggs, Cold
2 cups Flour
½ cups Cocoa Powder
2 teaspoons Baking Soda
1 bag Peanut Butter Chips
Heat the oven to 350 F
With a mixer, cream together the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until creamy but not fluffy. Add the vanilla, salt, and melted chocolate and beat on medium-low speed until thoroughly incorporated. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Combine the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix on low speed until just combined. Add the peanut butter chips and mix to distribute evenly.
Scoop the dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto the prepared sheet pans. Bake for 10 to 11 minutes, or until the cookies are puffed and just set at the edges. Do not over-bake. Cool on the pan for five minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Note: Originally this recipe called for 2 bags of peanut butter chips which would have made them even more delicious but after reading this article over at Kammy's Korner, I was convicted and only used one!!
