Cookie City

Peanut Butter Cookies

3 c. flour

2 t. baking soda

1/4 t. salt

1 c. unsalted butter, room temperature

1 c. packed light brown sugar

1 c. granulated sugar

2 large eggs, room temperature

1 c. chunky peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and position racks to center and top third of oven. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper. Sift flour, baking soda and salt together. Beat the butter and both sugars with an electric mixer on high until pale yellow, about one to two minutes. Add in eggs, one at a time and beat well. Beat in peanut butter. Reduce to low speed and gradually add flour mixture, mixing just until combined. I use a small scoop for these cookies but you can go up to 1/4 cup for the size. Bake about 15 minutes, rotating the trays halfway through baking.

The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies-note the differences in this recipe from the basic toll house classic cookie. I love the all brown sugar. I only use 2 cups of chocolate chips. Makes about 40 cookies.

2 c. flour

3/4 t. baking soda

1/2 t. fine sea salt

3.4 c. plus 1 T. uns. butter, room temperature

1 1/3 c. brown sugar

2 large eggs, room temperature

1 t. pure vanilla extract

2 2/3 c. chocolate chips, semi sweet or bittersweet, your choice (sometimes I only use 2 c. and  mix with toffee bits too)

1 c. chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter and brown sugar in mixer on medium speed until light in color about 1-2 minutes. Add eggs, one by one and then the vanilla.Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture in thirds. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts. Make cookies about 1/4 c. size. Bake 14-17 minutes rotating sheet pans from top to bottom and front to back.

    Yum, I want some. I’m afraid to make them because I’ll eat them. I will file this with my other “What’s Annie Cooking” recipes.
