Peanut butter cookies

This time I tried my hand at peanut butter cookies. I found these cookies at Baking blonde and surely she described them perfectly. These were delicious. I only made half the quantity. I tried to be a bit creative and so I flavoured these cookies with different ingredients. I copied the recipe from http://bakingblonde.wordpress.com/2008/06/15/the-best-peanut-butter-cookies-period/they and just made my adjustments in brackets. Fllow the link for more hints and tips on baking these cookies. I bet the original recipe is even more delicious since it uses peanut butter chips that here I couldn't find any. So here's the recipe:
The Original Peanut Butter
Cookie tweaked by bakingblonde
1 cup + 2 TBS peanut butter (I used crunchy)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 TBS milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Peanut Butter chips (didn’t use these)1
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips (used chopped chocolate)
3/4 cup Sugar (for rolling dough balls, may need more or less)
(some chopped peanuts for rolling)

Preheat oven to 350.
Line baking sheets with parchement paper.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the peanut butter, butter.
Once combined beat in the white sugar, and brown sugar until well blended. Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla.
In a large bowl wisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Gently add to creamed mixture and mix until almost combined.
Fold in chocolate and peanut butter chips.
Chill dough for at least 15 minutes.Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls.
Genlty roll the dough balls into sugar and place dough balls on parchment lined baking sheets. Carefully press each ball with fork tines to create a criss-cross pattern.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are lightly browned.
Remove from oven and cool on baking sheets for 5-10 minutes until sturdy enough to be transfered to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes about 30 cookies

They look delish! I think I'd go for the one quotes with chopped up peanuts just to upp the peanut flavour :D

bakingblonde said...

Oh I love your ideas added to the recipe! YUM, the pictures say it all!
I also recommend if adding PB chips to use Reese's PB chips, the generic ones are horrible!
