Teacher Appreciation


Tomorrow I will be making 2 or 3 dozen peanut butter chocolate chip cookies for my son’s elementary school. The PTO is having a teacher appreciation luncheon. These cookies are my go-to cookie recipe. They aren’t necessarily wholesome or healthy but hey, there is peanut butter in them! Anytime I see that someone is in need of baking services, I am glad to help out. This enables me to get my baking fix in without having a dozen cookies on the counter staring me in the face every time I go into the kitchen. I must confess I have a MAJOR sweet tooth and it is hard to not think about those cookies sitting there all by themselves waiting to be devoured. Baking is something I learned to do on my own when I became a young wife. I found myself drooling over the pictures in Martha Stewart magazine and then one day it hit me, I could make these things too. I really enjoy the process of baking and the outcome. Here is the recipe for the best peanut butter chocolate chip cookies in the world.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 ¼ cups all purpose flour

½ tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. baking powder

¼ tsp. salt

½ cup butter, softened

1 cup creamy peanut butter

¾ cup granulated sugar

½ cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 egg

1 Tbs. milk

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

½ cup chocolate chips

½ cup peanut butter chips

(or use 1 cup all chocolate chips)

1 Tbs. granulated sugar for coating

Combine flour, baking soda, powder and salt. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and peanut butter until fluffy. Add the sugars and beat until smooth. Add the egg and mix. Mix in milk and vanilla. Add the flour and beat until completely mixed. Stir in chips. Place sprinkling sugar on a plate. Roll dough into balls and roll in the sugar to coat. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 9-10 minutes or until slightly browned on the edges.
