It has been a very long time since I last posted any recipes-5 months! I've been very busy with my new sweet baby girl, my adorable 2 older girls and our new 5-year-old Shih Tzu doggie, Shamu. My blog has not been far from my thoughts though. Today I was in a chocolate chip cookie mood. Not just any chocolate chip cookie...an ooey gooey chocolate chip cookie. The only issue? I was out of my staple, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spread...great. So what did I do? What I always do, I improvised. After all, ooey gooey chocolate is always worth an improvisation.
I wanted to name these I Can't Believe There's Only 1 Tablespoon of Real Butter Chocolate-Peanut Butter Chip Cookies, but for the sake of title space, I shortened it.
These cookies are crispy on the outside, moist and dense on the inside.
Makes 2 dozen
1T unsalted butter, melted 2 1/4 c unbleached flour (or all-purpose if you prefer)
3/4 c granulated sugar 1 t baking soda
3/4 c packed brown sugar 3/4 t salt (I use Real Salt-it contains healthy minerals!)
1 large egg, plus 2 egg whites 1/2 pckg chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli Bittersweet)
1 1/2 t vanilla 1/4 pckg Reese's peanut butter chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat sugars with melted butter, it will resemble moist sand. Add egg, egg whites and vanilla. Mix until blended.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl; gradually add butter mixture, mixing just until blended. Add chocolate chips and peanut butter chips, mix until evenly blended.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop and press dough against mixing bowl, compacting it tightly. Place on cookie sheet that has been lined with sprayed parchment paper. Bake until cookies start to turn golden on top, take out of oven and let cool on wire rack.
