 Chris Krinkle Cookies

  •  1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips, melted (I used Ghiradelli)
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1//3-1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
 In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter, sugar and vanilla until creamy - about 1-2 minutes.  Beat in egg and water until combined.  Beat in melted chocolate until combined.  Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined.  Stir in peanut butter chips and chocolate chips.  Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes in refrigerator.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Drop rounded spoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheets, spacing about an inch apart.  Bake 10-12 minutes or until crisp and set.  Cool at least 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks/plate.

Makes about 2 dozen

  1. I'm STILL not done with baking! These look wonderful!

  2. These look amazing, and wow! You've earned your baking merit badge! And how great is it that TJ's carries PB chips now? I always stock up on their white chocolate chips,and now I need to bulk-buy the peanut butter ones too! Totally delicious and so cheap!

    1. Very cheap! I'm thinking their seasonal! Get them while you can.

  3. Whatever you call these, I'm in. Chocolate and peanut butter is totally my thang.

  4. Love chocolate and peanut butter anything. Your recipe name is what makes it a true winner though.

    I have always been sort of anti-shorts. Don't get me wrong. I love wearing shorts in hot weather, but my thought has been if you need a jacket, then it's too cold to wear shorts. The two kind of cancel each other out. It's the way I was raised. I spent my days as a child a Grandma's house while Mom worked. Grandma was a woman filled with untreated anxiety disorders. She had this weird paranoia about my being cold. If SHE felt cold (and she almost always did), then it was cold and thus if I were not adequately dressed according to what she felt was appropriate, then I would die on pnuemonia. I also would die if I went outside with my hair wet on a non-summer day. My general cutoff point for shorts is 75 degrees if I will be active and 80 if I won't be. That doesn't apply to skirts though, which is weird since wearing skirts without stockings isn't any warmer than shorts.
