The other night while Nate was in class I was in the mood to make some delicious treat. I was scouring through different recipes trying to find something I could make. But I was also looking for an excuse to make something – you see Monday night was the finale of Bachelorette (do any of you watch?! What were your thoughts?) and so we bought a bunch of snacks to eat while watching the show. So our house is filled with donuts, skittles, klondike bars, and chips. We didn’t exactly need anymore junk food in our house.
But do you ever just get the craving to bake? Of course I want to enjoy the treats I make, but sometimes I just want to try making something new. And this was one of those nights. Finally after debating over making either key lime cupcakes or oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, I decided I could make these cookies instead.
A few months ago I made my chocolate chip cookies for two, so why not try a peanut butter version. Peanut butter cookies are to die for, and when you add chocolate chips? One of the best combinations ever. So to settle my dilemma of wanting to bake, but also not wanting to fill our house with even more treats, I would make cookies for two.
This recipe, like the chocolate chip cookies for two recipe makes just 4 cookies. They are a little big, so you could probably make 6, if you really want to.
This is the perfect way to kill your sweet tooth craving, but not to overwhelm yourself with a couple dozen cookies left on your counter that just need to be eaten! I’m not very good at sharing with my neighbors, mostly cause I forget, so we end up freezing cookie dough a lot, or eating lots of cookies ourselves. Now I can just whip these cookies up and enjoy a delicious peanut buttery, chocolate cookie and then be done with it.
Enjoy these delicious cookies as you satisfy your sweet tooth, but don’t want to break your belly.
**Cookies are a little crumbly when warm, but will stick together more when cooled completely.
