This year I had made some promises, resolutions, what ever you want to call them to make myself better or more efficient in some ways.

I had decided to try the new recipe a week thing.

I decided that rather than spend money on processed cookies, I would bake my own.

I love to bake.

I have tried different recipes but mostly my standard Chocolate Chip Cookies.

This week I made Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies.


They are so tasty. We are definitely a chocolate/peanut butter family. Even my daughter who is the least of peanut butter fans in our family, loves them.

They came out amazing!

Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
2 Cups Flour
3/4 Cup Cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups butter, softened
2 Cups Sugar
2 Eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
10 oz Package of Reese's Peanut Butter chips

Heat oven to 350, Stir dry ingredients (Flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt). Mix butter and sugar until smooth, add eggs and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture. Then add chips.
Drop on ungreased cookie sheet in rounded teaspoons (we like our cookies a little bigger so they are not too small).
Bake for 8-9 minutes. Take out and let cool a minute on cookie sheet. Then cool on wire rack.

Enjoy with a big glass of milk or with your ice cream.
