The Many Forms Of A Cookie...


Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

*1 cup chunky peanut butter
*1/4 cup vegetable oil
*3/4 cup packed brown sugar
*1/2 cup sugar
*2 eggs
*1 tbsp. vanilla extract
*1 cup all-purpose flour
*1/3 cup cocoa powder
*1 tsp. baking soda
*1/2 tsp. salt
*1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Combine peanut butter and oil in a large mixing bowl. Add brown sugar and sugar; mix well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Add to peanut butter mixture; mix until blended (dough will be sticky). Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons 2" apart on un-greased baking sheets. Flatten slightly. Or as I did, use a rolling pin to roll dough into 1/4" thick and cut out shapes. Bake at 176ยบ for 8-10 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes before moving to wire racks. Recipe makes 4 dozen, total prep/cook time: 25 minutes
This past xmas something happened to me... something domestic... I got bitten by the baking bug again, and it had been awhile too! Using this recipe (with some minor adjustments) and endless inspiration from around the web, I decided that this year xmas would be creative, hand made (as much as possible) and from the heart. And so began what I like to call part one of Beale baking extravaganza... for the Brits. Later I'll show you guys three more recipes that hubs and I tackled state side for the Americans.

***Today I am thankful for delicious cookie recipes like this one... eating all the "broken" parts was hardly a sacrifice***


  1. This is fantastic!!! They look yummy and I love that you put them in jars!! I'm ALWAYS thankful when the cookies's the best part of the whole process:)

  2. Thank you! They did taste pretty good if I do say so myself ;) So many broken pieces to eat... not enough time!!! -JB.
