I love working in an office. The excitement for baked goods is amazing. I experience the joy of baking, and my co-workers  receive the joy of baked goods. It’s a win-win. But really, they ate these for breakfast – hurray!


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

(from…which they adapted from the Magnolia Cookbook)

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter at room temperature (smooth is what we used, but I am pretty sure they use chunky at the bakery)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips

For sprinkling: 1 tablespoon sugar, regular or superfine

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the flour, the baking soda, the baking powder, and the salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the butter and the peanut butter together until fluffy. Add the sugars and beat until smooth. Add the egg and mix well. Add the milk and the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat thoroughly. Stir in the peanut butter and chocolate chips. Place sprinkling sugar — the remaining tablespoon — on a plate. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls into the sugar, then onto ungreased cookie sheets, leaving several inches between for expansion.B ake for 10 to 12 minutes. Do not overbake. Cookies may appear to be underdone, but they are not.

Cool the cookies on the sheets for 1 minute, then remove to a rack to cool completely.

    Emma, these look delicious. We’ll have to try them.
    Did you want the pics of the chocolate/whipped cream confection we had at Thanksgiving? (I actually felt a little ill from all the whipped cream the next day – perhaps it was that I couldn’t stop picking at it?!!!)

      Hey Susan!

      Yes, I would love the pics from Thanksgiving!
      I wouldn’t be able to stop picking at it either, it was really most more-ish.
