It’s the middle of winter, miladies. There’s no better time to get your cookie fix. Bake your favorite cookie, pair it with some hot cocoa or milk, put your jammies on, cover yourself with a blanket, and watch endless hours of Gilmore Girls. What? That’s what I do. True story.
Peanut butter is probably my favorite food, and then paired with chocolate, it’s just the BEST. Very Best Baking by Nestle is a baking site I visit often and where I found this recipe. These cookies call for milk chocolate chips: YUM.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter**I used creamy**
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 3/4 cups (11.5-oz. pkg.) milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine flour and baking soda in small bowl. Beat butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in egg. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chips.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Press down slightly with bottom of glass dipped in granulated sugar.
**Milady Note: When I bake cookies, I use super shiny cookie sheets. I hate a cookie with overbrowned bottoms!! Shiny cookie sheets reflect heat and in my opinion make the best cookies. Or at least, my kind of cookie!
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are set but centers are still soft. Cool on baking sheets for 4 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
