Marymount B.L.O.G.S

With the semester in full swing I like to de-stress by cooking and baking. I think it is very important to find something you can do on your own that allows you to step back from the chaos of graduate school and just relax for a bit. The best part of my “self care” is that I get a yummy meal or treat after AND I can share with my friends and loved ones! I am going to share my favorite cookie recipe for all the lucky readers of this blog! 

WARNING: making these for others, may cause you to have to make them again and again because they’re sooo good!

Daisy’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 stick plus 6 Tbsp of unsalted butter, at room temp.
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter (crunchy gives more texture)
2 1/3 cups all- purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup or more of chocolate chips (you can chop them if you want)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Cream sugars and butter until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, mix well in between. Then mix in vanilla and peanut butter (at a lower speed if using electric mixer)
Add flour, baking soda, and salt and mix well until dough is smooth! Stir in the chocolate chips until evenly dispersed.

Scoop out cookies onto cookie sheet ( i say the bigger the better!) and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges, and quite flat. Then let cookies cool on a wire rack and they should be perfectly soft and chewy.

Enjoy these with a large glass of milk and call it a day of studying!

with love,
