This is a recipe I meant to make over the Thanksgiving/Yule/Christmas time frame, but it didn't happen. Cuz that whole holiday typhoon doesn't leave a whole lot of time. So I'm making Donald these cookies for Valentine's Day since we're on a very fixed budget (thanks to the asshat who trashed out rental home in NM & made us use the money in our savings account to fix it up again.) I've never been the whole "I love Valentine's Day" girl...in fact I'm pretty much anti-V day because it's just about making money for corporations. But hey, I can still bake the cookies LOL
Side note: this is a fairly small recipe, so feel free to double it for a larger batch.
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup Creamy Peanut Butter (not low fat)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup Reese's Peanut Butter chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat butter, sugar, & peanut butter in large bowl until creamy. Add egg & vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda, & salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in peanut butter chips. Drop by 1/4 cupfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet, 6 cookies per sheet. (I make my cookies smaller b/c my kids don't need a HUGE cookie like that. And I use parchment paper, but YMMV.)
Bake 12 - 16 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges. Cool 1 minute, remove to finish cooling on wire rack. Makes about a dozen HUGE cookies.
