Shay and I have been in a baking mood. Yesterday when I came home he was waiting for me with a big smile on his face and got to baking up a batch of amazing treats. Today we were meant to just spend the afternoon running errands but by the time we came home we wanted to try out a brand new recipe. It was already getting late and I was anxious to catch the last bits of sunlight so we worked fast and somehow we managed to bake up this gooey, peanut butter chocolatey batch. I always say we but honestly Shay does all the cooking, I'm usually just scrambling around passing him things and trying to stay out of the way. I'm always behind the scenes and sticking my camera in his face but it's how we work together, we're a good team.
We were inspired by some M&M Cookies we'd recently seen but since he and I are both obsessed with Recess and Peanut Butter we decided to whip up a Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie Batch. The best part is that they only took ten minutes to bake so they were quick enough to throw together before the sunset. These are our very own Recess Pieces Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies and they're honestly an incredible delicious sticky gooey treat.
Here's What You'll Need:
- 1 cup of White Sugar - 1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
- 1 cup of Brown Sugar - 2 teaspoons of Hot Water
- 1 cup of Butter Softened - 1/2 teaspoon of Salt
- 2 Whole Eggs - 1 cup of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract - 3 cups of Flour
- 1 cup of Recess Pieces - 1 cup of Walnuts Chopped
Here's How We Did It:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the White Sugar, Brown Sugar, and Butter together in a large mixing bowl until smooth.
2. Beat the eggs into the bowl one at a time and add the Vanilla Extract. Once that's done, dissolve the Baking Soda in Hot Water and then add that mixture into the bowl along with the salt.
3. Stir in the Flour, Chocolate Chips, Recess Pieces, and Walnuts.
4. Put large spoon fulls engrossed two inches apart on an ungreased Baking Sheet and pop your cookies into the oven. These babies only take about ten minutes but watch them and make sure they're simply nicely brown along the edges.
5. Take them out and let them cool then enjoy yourself a warm gooey treat with a glass of milk.
I love big cookies so we made ours extra big and sweet. These were perfect with simple hints of peanut butter and chocolate and a nice crispy walnut core. They reminded me of sugar cookies, soft and tasty and even though I could only afford a nibble of these, I'm definitely dreaming of them for my next Cheat Night Meal. Hope you enjoyed our recipe and stay tuned for many more!
