Keeping things simple in a not so simple world

two girls on a rainy afternoon

While the boys were off to play at a birthday party, my daughter and I spent a cool rainy afternoon coloring, playing card games and baking.  My daughter’s favorite cookies are peanut butter chocolate chip.  I have tried many recipes for these, most being fine, none exceptional.

That is, until yesterday.  Oh my!  This is the ultimate recipe.  Light and airy, crumbly with just the right amount of chew…oh yes, these will be gone soon. Not exactly healthy, but a great treat on a wet, rainy and cool Sunday afternoon.  I may even have to say that these are my favorite cookies!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter
2 cups Pamela’s All-Purpose Gluten-free Baking Mix
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 egg
1 cup chocolate chips

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together all ingredients except chocolate chips. Once mixed, add chocolate chips.
Using a regular sized spoon to scoop the batter, place scoop on an un-greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to drying rack to finish cooling.
