These cookies weren't supposed to be! A Zaar chef, who shall remain nameless, ;) posted a recipe for a chocolate cookie with pb chips in it. But instead of listing butter as the first ingredient, she accidentally listed peanut butter. After I had mixed everything together, I knew something was wrong because I ended up with a bowl full of crumbs, not dough. To try and salvage the ingredients, I added the milk, left out the pb chips and formed them like traditional pb cookies. Thankfully, the resulting cookies were soft and tasty so I decided to share. :)
- Place peanut butter and sugar in a large bowl and beat until thoroughly combined.
- Mix in the eggs and vanilla.
- Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
- Alternately add with the milk to the peanut butter mixture, mixing thoroughly. (How thick your peanut butter is will determine if you need more milk or not.).
- Roll into one inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
- Use a fork to flatten with the traditional crisscross pattern of a peanut butter cookie.
- Bake at 350° for 8 minutes. Allow to cool on cookie sheet slightly before removing to a cooling rack.
I made these cookies on 12/21/07,and I'm so embarrassed that I haven't rated this until now.The smell as they were coming out of the oven was great,and the taste of the warm cookie was very good.But I must say that as they cooled the cookie seemed to lose some of the "chewy" texture.Not sure if I will make these again,but thanks for posting."Keep Smiling"
Loved the flavour - very fudgey yet the pb was still very noticeable. The texture was a little bit odd, though. Kinda chewy, kinda soft... Easy recipe - I had to use 1/2 cup of milk to make the dough.
This will now be one of my favorite cookies! I love the fudgy moist texture and the subtle peanut butter taste! Thanks for the recipe! I did use more than 1/4 cup of milk- actually used buttermilk cause that's what I had-since I used organic PB and it was a lot thicker than normal PB.
