Today my goal was to come up with a cookie recipe that was a) delicious and b) chewy. I think I mastered it pretty well. I am dropping cookie crumbs all over my keyboard as we speak. Oops. To master the art of cookie making I researched a few different cookie recipes and took the best ingredients from each. I will let you decipher for yourself how you think they are.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
1½ tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
2 large eggs
1 cup chocolate chips
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt; mix together and set aside. In your mixer, cream together the butter, peanut butter and honey.
Mix in the eggs, beating well after each addition. With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients to the peanut butter mixture and beat just until mixed. Mix in 1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350˚ F. Roll the dough into 1½-inch balls, Place the dough balls on an ungreased baking sheet, a couple inches apart. Using a fork press the cookie down.
Bake for 10 minutes, or until slightly puffed and golden. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough.
