Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I found this recipe on the package of Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips. I didn’t buy those chips for the recipe. It just happened that trying to come up with some ideas how to use the chips I looked at the package and read the recipe. I normally would use them for “Thick, Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies from Smitten Kitchen – our family’s all time favorite. Sometimes I like to add an extra sweetness to this original recipe using different kinds of chocolate chips. This time I thought about peanut butter and that’s why I bought them but when I read the recipe on the box I’ve decided to make them.

And by an accident I’ve discovered the new family favorite cookies!!! 

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup cocoa

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) butter, softened

1 cup white sugar (original recipe calls for 2 cups of white sugar)

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 cup peanut butter chips (or more)

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 350 F.

2. stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Beat buttter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in peanut butter chips.

3. Using a rounded teaspoon drop the dough onto ungreased cookie sheet (I used aluminum foil). Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Do not overbake; cookies will be very soft. They will puff while baking and flatten while cooling. (the original recipe says to bake them 8 to 9 minutes but in my case 8 minutes was too short and the cookies weren’t baked inside)

4. Cool slightly leaving on the baking sheet; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

those cookies are almost like a tiny, thin brownies; crunchy on the outside and so moist and chewy inside. they are delicate to handle because they are really thin. I tried to make an ice cream cookie sandwiches but those cookies seemed to be too thin and delicate. They were falling apart too easily but I really, really enjoyed the flavor:

From this recipe I got about 45 cookies!!! And today, two days after I made them, they are all gone already… .

btw, Happy Birthday America!
