Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies

Its Tuesday ---- after  a hectic Monday,  with work going upto 1:30 AM in the night , working lunch and a sweaty gym session in the morning. It's time to do it all over again on a Tuesday. Heck-this schedule continues for the next remaining four day and I'm tired thinking about it all already. Let Peanut butter be my Nirvana point.Its more of getting something you like -- adding more of what you love. Bake them all till they are all in a mushy togetherness - find that perfect pairing - hot choclate- horlicks- tea - oh! whatever. This is a combination that one can never go wrong with ...find a cozy corner. Sit back and enjoy....

Can we have more love (we are talking the edible variety - you Dirty Dirty mind ;) for the rest of the remaining days of the week too !! 

Here is the recipe thats been adapted from the The-girl-who-ate-everything

1 cup + 2 TBS peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened (I used Amul)

1/4 cup white sugar (you can substitute with splenda for the calorie conscious )
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 TBS milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt


My adaptation was to skip the Peanut butter chips and the chocolate chips. I could not find these easily in India.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the peanut butter, butter. Once combined beat in the white sugar, and brown sugar until well blended. Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla. In a large bowl mix  all the dry ingredients. Gently add to creamed mixture and mix until almost combined. Chill cookie dough for at least half an hour.
Roll tablespoonful’s of dough into balls. Place dough balls on parchment lined baking sheets. Carefully press each ball with fork tines to create a criss-cross pattern. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are lightly browned. Please be careful as they burn easily. Keep checking. Turn off oven when they are browned.
