Try some of these!

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 & 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup roasted, salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.

Beat butter and peanut butter using an electric mixer on medium speed. Mix about 2 minutes, or until combined. Add sugars and mix another 2 minutes. Add eggs and mix. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing just until combined. Fold in chocolate chips, peanuts, and vanilla. Refrigerate dough about 15 minutes or until slightly firm.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place 2-3 inches apart on lined baking sheets. Flatten each cookie slightly. Bake 8- minutes or until golden. Cool on wire racks.

Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

I got this recipe from here, and boy am I glad I did! Be careful not to over bake them... they make a really crispy cookie if you do. The best results were baking for 8 minutes, and letting sit on the pan for 3 minutes, then transferring to the cooling rack. I used 1/2 cup margarine, and 4 Tablespoons of Butter. I also used chunky peanut butter and didn't add the extra peanuts.

I let Reuben whisk the dry ingredients, and flatten the cookies as I scooped them out of my favorite cookie scooper thing.

They look sooo good. I'm glad I don't like to make cookies cuz I'd eat them all. (Don't you just LOVE those cookie scooper thingies!)

P.S. I'm going to send you some yarn. I looked at the pattern and it's darling!

I waited 10 days to make these (until a day I could eat sweets) and then the drawer under my oven where the cookie sheets are kept was stuck shut. Darn muffin pan! So I waited another several days and my drawer is still stuck, so I'm making them in the toaster oven. So there.
