Chocolate-Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
In a quest to make something out of whatever was in my pantry, I came up with these cookies. Chocolate chips times two, peanut butter chips, and pecans all rolled into a basic cookie dough. This recipe is actually a combination of several recipes plus some improvisation.
First, beat 1 cup of softened butter until creamy. Add 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar and mix well. Next, add 2 eggs (1 at a time) and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl, combine 2 & 1/4 cups of AP flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar mixture. Once this is mixed well, add 1/2 cup of finely chopped pecans and 3/4 cup each of milk chocolate chips, semisweet chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips.
Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. This recipe should yield 40 to 48 cookies.
As for the results, the cookies turned out pretty well. Nothing spectacular or unique, but very good and very simple.
