Recipe: Peanut Butter Choco-Chip Cookies

PB Cookies

I did my finding online and put together what worked for me in different recipes according to the ingredients available and trying to make a slightly healthier version to offer my kid.

I did go in for refined flour (Maida) since I was trying baking cookies for the first time. Next time I want to try with whole wheat flour. Also, the recipe I found, said brown sugar, which I substituted with jaggery powder. My cookies did turn out sweeter than I wanted them to be, but hey, we learn with hit and trial, right?! 🙂

Ingredients:-

Refrigerated
  • 2 Eggs, large
Dairy
  • 3/4 cup Butter (About 100 grams), softened
Baking & spices
  • 1 1/2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 cup Peanut Butter (creamy or crunchy, is upto you)
  • 1 cup Jaggery powder (you can use Brown sugar as well) firmly packed light
  • 2 1/4 cups Milk Chocolate chips
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

Method:-

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/ 350F.
  2. Using a mixer, mix the butter, sugars, peanut butter, eggs and vanilla together until combined.
  3. Add in the flour, soda, and salt in and mix until just combined.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the dough onto ungreased cookie sheets. (6 per sheet, these will be large, thick cookies!)
  6. Use your hand and slightly flatten each scoop of dough.
  7. Cook for 12-14 minutes at 180C/ 350F.
  8. Remove cookies from oven and cool on baking sheet 2 minutes before placing on cooling rack.
  9. Makes large, 18 cookies.

Recipe Notes:-

  • Make sure you don’t over-measure your flour.  You should spoon your flour into your measuring cup and then level it off.
  • To make an eggless version, you can try a commercial egg replacement or the following mixture- 1 1/2 tbsp (1.5 tbsp) Vegetable oil mixed with 1 1/2 tbsp Water and 1 tsp Baking Powder PER Egg.
  • You can bake them for a few minutes longer if you want slightly crispier cookies.
  • The jaggery powder quantity is what I used, you can use lesser if you like. mine turned out super sweet.
