Super Duper Chocolatey Peanut Butter Cookies

When something is almost too awesome for words TT prefaces it with "Super Duper" (typically it involves chocolate, so "Super Duper Chocolatey... " is most often heard). 

Yesterday I hosted an Usborne book party (at my mom's, because that makes total sense... right?) anyways, as the hostess I decided to make some Super Duper treats, one of which were these Super Duper Chocolately Peanut Butter cookies, I used this recipe for inspiration.

Super Duper Chocolately Peanut Butter Cookies
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 ¼ cups peanut butter (I use the natural stuff)
1/4 cup sugar (with an extra 1/4 cup set aside for later)
3/4 cup packed golden yellow/light brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 large egg
1 big splash of vanilla
3/4 tsp salt
1/2-3/4 cup of President's Choice mini peanut butter cup chips (not peanut butter chips but itty-bitty-teeny-tiny peanut butter cups... )

Combine all the wet ingredients

Combine all the dry (separately)

Slowly combine dry to wet

Add in peanut butter cup chips

Roll small balls of dough in white sugar (that you set aside)

Arrange on baking sheet and press down with a fork

Bake in preheated (350*F) oven for 10-13minutes (or until golden brown at the edges... too long and they'll be crunchy, I prefer soft & chewy cookies)

I should have taken a picture but they were too good to stop and think of doing that... bon appetit!

  2. Glad you enjoyed! They are on my "must-make-again-SOON" list :)

    Maybe I'll eat them while jogging, will that cancel out the calories?
