I do not make a lot of cookies and when I do, I make sure that it is not a waste of time making them. You see, I am not a type of baker who invent my own pastry recipe. I am a slave of recipe book to get the perfect cake or cookie in this instance. I hate to waste my time, it has happened so many time that I had cookie fails due to my own experiments. I got this cookie recipe from Yummy magazine and these cookies just made it to my ” do again” cookie recipes. It has peanut butter and chococalate chips. This is also a very easy cookie to make. Aside from the sweet cravings lately, I just have to make these today because the ingredients were all present in my pantry. Hahahaa. I am so lucky that the recipe called for 1/2 cup peanut butter and I got the same amount of peanut butter that I want to get rid of.
These cookies are not cake-like and not greasy. They are not hard as well.They are crisp on the outside and chewy in the inside. I bake it for only 8 minutes at 375 F and I removed it right away from the cookie sheet to continue cooking in the wire rack to keep the softness in it. It may look jiggly and uncook but this is the only way not to burn these cookies. Do not skip this process because when I baked these cookies for 12 minutes, per instruction , it was burned and hard, so keep an eye of the 8 minute timer. I think they have the right flavor and texture also. you can lessen the amount of white sugar if you want it to be gently sweet.
I divided the dough into two and baked in various process. First, I got a spoonful of the dough and let it drop on the baking sheet as is. The other batch, I got a spoonful of dough and I flattened them into 1/2 inch thick. I prefer the second process better because of how it looks. Nonetheless, both have the same delicious flavor and the softness varied a little bit. So I leave it up to you on how you wanna do it. ENJOY!!!
