Christmas Cookies

Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite Holiday cookies! Daniel has a found love for my chocolate chip cookies, and loves peanut butter so I decided to merge the two, and give him a little protein in the cookies; featuring my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies!! I do not really have much to say about these, expect if you want to make them a bit more healthier (I mean who are we kidding cookies are cookies, they are not meant to be health but you can use homemade peanut butter instead of store bought (my recipe is linked below) and you can use soy-free dark chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate. Dark chocolate (I am talking about 70% Cacao powder here, not any less than 70%, if you can find higher get that!) is extremely good for you because it helps with weight loss, it has antioxidants, lowers blood pressure and so many more, the list is endless. This dough is safe to eat raw! 

You Will Need:

1 Cup Organic Butter, unsalted (softened)
1 1/2 Cup Organic Sugar
2 Large Pasture-Raised Eggs, room temp
2 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
2 1/4 Cup Organic All-Purpose Flour (or whole wheat)
1 tsp Baking Powder (Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 tsp Salt
2 Cups Organic Dark Chocolate Chips (70%)
1 Cup Organic Peanut Butter 

In your stand mixer, or a deep bowl, attached with a the paddle attachment (I am using my hand mixer), cream the sugar and butter together. 

Add peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla, mix together

Add you dry ingredients in and mix together, until incorporated

Looking GOOD!!

Fold in the chocolate chips

Scoop even amounts on a baking sheet; I always use my small ice cream scoop so it makes even amounts

You can either cook the cookies, at 350 for 9-12 minutes, take out cook 5 minutes, and then cook completely on a cooling rack or...

These are frozen, I LOVE making a bunch of these in minis, and freezing them for later (Daniel always steals the cookie dough and eats it raw, that is why I always use pasture raised eggs).
