The other day I made cookies for 20-30 people and needed to think up a recipe which was quick and yummy because I didn’t want to spend hours making them! I made a batch of white chocolate chip, milk chocolate chip and peanut butter! And my brother gave me the idea to mix the peanut butter and milk choc chip together for a unique flavour! This is perfect for people who want to make a quick treat whilst the kids are on a break from school!
Makes 12-14 cookies
1/2 cup room temperature butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 & 1/4 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
100g chocolate chunks
Always start by preparing the oven and lining the baking tray with paper. Gas mark 5 for today’s treats!
You then want to get your butter (if its cold out the fridge, put it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds)
Add 3/4 cup of sugar
And very lightly cream together- you don’t want it to be smooth but just ensure all the mixture is combined. Over mixing will leave the mixture too runny and we’re looking for more of a dough as a harder dough cooks better biscuits.
Pop in your egg
And vanilla extract. I don’t like using vanilla essence as it’s often artificially flavoured and doesn’t taste as good
Add in 2 tablespoons of peanut butter but of course you can add as much as you like depending on what your taste preference is. I’m using a chunky peanut butter with nuts for an extra crunch
Bit by bit, add in your flour and mix the mixture in
Add in your chocolate chips/ chunks/ pieces.. Whatever you like!
Add in your bicarbonate of soda and mix this in well and evenly
Your mixture will resemble this
And that’s when you can scoop your mixture, a tablespoon at a time, into a heap. I managed to make 12
You’ll need to leave them in the oven for around 20 minutes but don’t be afraid to take then out and lightly feel the centre of them.. If its too soft, give them another 5 minutes. And when you’ll take them out, they’ll look like this.
