Double Chocolate, Double Peanut Cookies

Postby Dragon Wench » Wed May 23, 2012 8:49 pm

I originally found this recipe in an old student survival cookbook, and over the years I have tinkered with it so much that I consider it my own. However, when I recently added peanut butter and Dutch coco powder I started to believe at the first bite that I'd descended to the Great Beyond of Satanic decadence... so I decided to share. :D

They are very simple and easy to prepare, but if you like the combination of chocolate and peanuts, you may find these tasty.

Combine in a large bowl:

1/2 cup shortening, or butter, or a combination thereof
1 cup Demarara sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup good quality, unsweetened coco powder

With an electric beater or muscle power and a wooden spoon, beat together until smooth and creamy.

1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

Mix again.

Add by hand (unless you have a dough hook):

1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup roasted peanuts

Mix until well blended, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 350*. Drop by quantities of roughly 1 tablespoon onto greased cookie sheets (or you can cover the sheets with parchment paper, which is my favourite way to bake, avoids mess and sticking entirely). Bake for between 10 and 13 minutes, making sure they are still soft and a bit gooey when you take them from the oven.

Enjoy! (hint: they go really well with hot chocolate or coffee)
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe:
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion;
I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.
All those moments ... will be lost ... in time ... like tears in rain.
