After weeks of working on them, I have finally came up with my new chocolate chip recipe. I think this really hits the spot and does not have an overwhelming amount of ingredients like my last recipe. I am very pleased with it, the salty and sweet combine perfectly to create a savory snack.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups of flour
1 1/4 cups of chocolate chips
3/4 cup of white sugar
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of oil
1/4 cup of water
1 1/2 tablespoons of peanut butter
1 tablespoon of peanut pieces (optional)
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, add flour, white sugar, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, peanut pieces, and chocolate chips and mix well. Then add the peanut butter, oil, vanilla, and water and mix until all the flour is moist. It should be a nice brown color and fairly dense.
Take a tablespoon and a half of the cookie dough, form it into a ball and flatten it onto a baking sheet. This should net around 20 cookies. Bake for 14 minutes and place of a paper bag to let cook and soak up the excess oil.
I am so relieved that I have finally completed this recipe. It is funny that it takes me months to complete a baking recipe but I can whip up an entree recipe in minutes and generally on the first try.
