Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

{recipe via}
The past few days have been crazy, and today was no different! I’ve been home alone most of the week {my choice}, and today I decided to bake some cookies! I can bake some delicious stuff, I just usually don’t like to. I really like cooking though! I knew I had to try something different, instead of my usual cookies, so I surfed my Pinterest recipes board, and came up with these!
This one picture took about 10 minutes to make. I had to find and measure all the ingredients, and then make sure Oliver stayed away! {this is actually a composite of 2 pictures, because I only had 1 teaspoon! So I photographed it with the baking powder, and then switched it out for the baking soda, and merged the pictures! Haha!}
Oliver did so well! He sat beside me while I took the pictures, even though I know he was dying to lick the peanut butter!!! :) {p.s. like his haircut? :)}
I think that baking cookies is kind of boring, so what better way to spice up the cookie-baking process than taking pictures of yourself? YAY for a new battery in my remote!!!
 I have washed SO many dishes this week!!! Not as many as mom, but still a lot :)
This is what I feel like doing after baking cookies ;)
Ollie-bear had loads of fun sleeping while I made cookies :)
Here’s the recipe!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
374 degrees, bake 8 minutes
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar or 1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 to 1 tablespoon
1/2 to 1 cup semi-chocolate
In a large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and baking powder. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in the egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in flour. Add milk. Add chocolate chips and mix till just incorporated.  If necessary, cover and chill dough about 1 hour or until easy to handle. Drop cookies by scooping them out of the bowl with a spoon dropping them in small balls onto your greased cookie sheets. Bake until bottoms are light brown. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
