Giving Back Part 2: Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Cookies... We have a love/hate relationship.  Mostly because this time last year I was baking thousands of them.  Literally. Thousands.  For my small cookie business that blew up a little faster than I ever expected or could handle.  But I'm finally starting to think about baking them again.  And our client picnic at work was a perfect reason.  

So I baked dark chocolate cookies... 

With dark chocolate chips...

And not a single crumb was left when all was said and done... I guess they like them! 

Start by creaming the butter and sugars together. 

Dark brown sugar that is.  

Add the eggs, vanilla, and peanut butter.  Mix until smooth. 

Sweet homemade vanilla made by my friend Rachel, author of The Moody Foodie

In a medium bowl, mix all dry ingredients together.  

Slowly mix into the wet ingredients until all incorporated. 

Than add the chips to the mixture.  YUM! 

Scoop dough onto baking sheets using a medium scoop.  Bake away!

Gooey chocolate...

So rich, and salty, and delicious!
