Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m a blogging newbie.  I’ll admit it.  I’m not ashamed.  But I started this to share recipes with my family and I’ve found a much bigger audience.  I’m just realizing now that I should probably adjust the lighting on my photos, and that it doesn’t take up more space to have the photos be full sized as opposed to the small ones I used to use.  It’s a definitely been a learning experience for me.

The one thing I’ve always been confident in is my recipes.  Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I’m a good baker and a pretty decent cook.  I love it – it’s relaxing and the smell of something baking in the oven is one of the most comforting things I know.  These cookies are exactly what I’m talking about.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

Makes about 20 large cookies

1/4 cup butter

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup sugar

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup gluten free flour mix, or all purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350°.  In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, salt & chocolate chips together.

Cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugar in a large bowl, until it’s pale and fluffy.  Add each egg, one at a time, beating well between each addition.  Beat in the vanilla.  Add the flour mixture all at once.  Beat until the dough starts to form a ball and there are still a few streaks of flour.  Mix in the remaining flour by hand.  The dough will be very soft.  Cover the dough and put it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.

Drop the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a large ungreased cookie sheet.  Pat the top of each cookie until it is just flat.  Bake for 10 – 14 minutes, until they’re lightly golden and the edges are just starting to brown.  Remove immediately from the cookie sheet and let cool.
