A PERFECT Bake Sale Cookie Recipe

Recently I made a new cookie recipe.  It had peanut butter in it and LOTS of chocolate chips.  It made a HUGE amount of cookies and they tasted AMAZING.  Every time I bit into one of the cookies all I could think of is how perfect the recipe would be for a bake sale.  Especially if the cookies were wrapped up in a pretty little package with a ribbon. :-) 


Now I just need to find an opportunity to make these cookies again!  Anyone have a bake sale coming up that you need some cookies for it?  Let me know if you do because I've got just the recipe destined for a bake sale.



Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
(recipe from the lovely Jamie Cooks it Up! )

Ingredients:

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter (I used smooth, Jaime used chunky)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 (12 oz.) bag semi sweet chocolate chips
1 (12 oz.) bag milk chocolate chips  (I stuck with just milk chocolate and used 2 bags of them instead of 1 of semi and 1 of milk)


Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat softened butter and peanut butter together in a standing mixer until light and fluffy - a good 4-5 minutes.

2. Add in sugars and eggs. Beat for another 2 minutes.  Mixture will appear frothy when it is done.

3. While butter, sugars and eggs are beating together combine dry ingredients in a medium size bowl.  Add dry ingredients to the beaten wet ingredients.  Mix all together for 1 minute.

4. Next add in chocolate chips and mix just until combined. Scoop out cookie dough onto cookie sheets lined with either parchment paper or Silpat.  I used my medium size scoop that I purchased from Pampered Chef

5. Bake cookies for 8 to 9 minutes - just until they start to crack. The cookies will appear that they need more time to bake but you do NOT want to over bake these cookies.  They will continue to bake on the hot cookie sheet after they come out of the oven.  I let the cookies sit on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes and then removed them onto a platter.

So yummy! Enjoy!


Happy Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookie Baking!
