Several cookie monsters in our house and so these Chewy Chipsters (Cookies) hardly last a couple of days.
We’ve made so many cookies that incorporate the basic ingredients (sugar, butter, flour, baking soda/powder) that it’s easy to start with the basics and spin variations from there.
My daughter wanted to make cookies (I wanted some baking for school lunches) so we started with a basic recipe and added chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. Unfortunately I forgot she is not allowed to bring peanut butter and/or variations and as such the cookies didn’t get to go to school that week but ended up as an afternoon and evening snack.
Here are our Chewy Chipster Cookies (as named by my daughter).
- 1 cup butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar packed
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup peanut butter chips
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- In a bowl using a mixer combine your butter, brown sugar & white sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each egg. Stir in vanilla.
- In a second bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add into wet mixture.
- Fold in all chips and drop spoonfuls (approximately 1 tbsp) onto parchment lined baking sheets leaving enough room between cookies for expansion.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes until light brown. Allow cookies to sit a few minutes on baking sheet, cooling. Remove to wire racks.
- These are delicious.
