It’s officially Bakemas 2019! 🎉
If it’s your first bakemas here, welcome. It is my annual mini-series in which I show you how to make a various Christmas themed baked goods – perfect if you want to impress your family and friends or if you’re hosting a Christmas party!
Today I’ll be sharing with you a recipe for peanut butter and milk chocolate chip cookies – this is easily a win-win recipe. You have the winning combination of peanut butter and chocolate in a cookie?! Name a better combination, go on, I dare you to!
Although this recipe isn’t overly festive, doesn’t mean it can’t be made during the holiday period. It will make for a much appreciated break away from the over the top Christmas goods.
Anyway, let’s get started, shall we?
75g Light brown sugar.
75g Granulated sugar.
25g Peanut butter.
175g Plain flour.
1/2 tsp Baking powder.
100g Milk chocolate chips (plus extra to finish the cookies with).
100g Peanut butter chips (plus extra to finish the cookies with).
Before you get into making the cookies, you’ll want to do some prep. Weigh up all of your ingredients, preheat the oven to 180˚/350˚f, line your baking trays with greaseproof/parchment and get any equipment you intend to use ready.
Into a large mixing bowl, place the butter, granulated sugar, light brown sugar and peanut butter and then beat them together on a medium-high speed until they are well combined.
You can then add in the egg beat until it has been fully worked in. You’ll notice a change in consistency as they are worked in, this is completely normal.
Add in the plain flour, baking powder, milk chocolate chips and peanut butter chips and mix on a medium speed to start, working your way up to medium-high speed. Mix just until a clear dough forms, being careful not to over-mix the dough, otherwise the cookies will be quite tough.
Give your bowl a good scraping down and incorporate any bits that haven’t been fully worked into the dough earlier on.
Grab yourself a cookie scoop and take 2 scoops of cookie dough per cookie, flattening both balls of dough. Onto 1 half of the cookie dough pipe some peanut butter and secure that in place with the other ball of cookie dough, roll together and place onto your lined baking tray.
Before you place the cookies into the oven to bake, flatten the balls of dough and round them using a cookie cutter (this is to help them bake round).
Place the cookies in the oven to bake for around 12-13 minutes (or until they are golden brown around the edges).
Once baked, remove from the oven and finish with an assortment of chocolate chips and peanut butter chips on top of each cookie, the transfer to a cooling rack to cool fully.
