Soft & Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies w. White Chocolate Chips

I had a really bad day yesterday, which is pretty abnormal for me. I was all types of aggravated, upset, angry. Not even my caribbean coffee fro-yo could cheer me up. I needed some cookies, stat. So last night when I finally made it home (around 9 pm) I decided to whip up a batch of peanut butter cookies, but they wouldn’t have been naughty enough without some extra sweetness, so I decided to throw some white chocolate chips in the batch. I think these might be the best peanut butter cookies I’ve ever made…

 

They were so soft and actually very light, I think it’s because of the way I whipped the batter even after the flour was added. I loved it! I’m so happy they turned out as good as they did. I really needed something to go my way! At least the cookies didn’t let me down…

I also meant to bring most of them to work today but of course this morning, with my head still reeling from yesterday, I picked up the container & put them down…some where. I didn’t realize I didn’t have them until I got into the office! I know I left them in my house so at least I still have some amazing cookies to drown yesterday’s sorrows in. :) Any reason to eat more will do, right??

I’m just hoping that my adorable munchkin of a puppy didn’t get to them.

love him!

Soft & Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies w/ White Chocolate Chips
Yields: 32 cookies

Ingredients

1/2 c butter
1/2 c dark brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
2 T sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 c fl
3/4 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 t salt
1 c white chocolate chips

Preparation

Cream butter, peanut butter and sugars together. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Beat in flour so the batter is light and fluffy. Add sweetened condensed milk, baking soda, powder, vanilla extract & salt, mix until combined. Fold in white chocolate chips.

Roll into balls and flatten slightly.

Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or adjust to suit your oven and size of cookies.

Of course, I couldn't wait for them to cool down! :)

Let rest for 3 minutes in pan, then move to a wire rack to cool completely.

Let's face it, I ate these 3 plus 2 more! I said it was a rough day. ;)

yummy yummy yummy

    These cookies look marvelous, Lacy! Did they stay soft and chewy the day or days after. I have a problem with making cookies that turn out fab and then the next day they resemble hockey pucks :-( I hope life has been good since that traumatic day. Have a great weekend!

    Wow – those look delicious! I’m sorry you had a bad day, but I suspect the puppy and peanut butter cookies helped! I have a Yorkie Pup of my own and she always makes me smile when the going gets bad!

      Thanks Erin! I wish I could have handed them out with the recipe. I have wayyyy too many cookies tempting me to eat them all!

    The texture is what makes me want to bake these. Hard cookies are ok but sometimes I want a change-these are just the ticket. Yum!
