Chunky Peanut Cookies  | Food  | Cookies

Hi guys!

Stop.

I really wonder if there is any other none-sexist greeting word with a sincere mood in American slang. I like saying it, but my "woman" side gets rebellious when I sum up readers as "guys". So please help me to find a better greeting word. This is not a normal blogger, you all know :D

Well... We can go on now.

Maybe I'd rather start with the news.

I mentioned about something new will happen in my life last week. But I didn't want to talk about it before I was sure.

Here the news! I started working at the newpspaper of "Journalists Association of Turkey" this monday. I will be on education for the first month, and then I will decide which department to work.

You can't imagine how happy, and excited I am! I'm doing small jobs now, writing short articles of ordinary news. However I'm planning to write articles on my own interesets, and give them to my chief.

peanut cookiesNot so difficult to guess, huh? My plan is to write about food of course!

Here the news ends. Now cookies...

I baked these cookies four days ago, on Saturday, but they are still crispy, and smells peanut-y deeply.

This is the first kind of a peanut butter cookie I baked. I really enjoyed the dough, and it was so pleasing when it was baking. The odour that filled the home was so cheerful to me!

In fact this was a recipe of the book Australian Women's Weekly / Biscuits, Brownies & Biscotti, and the name of it was "Scorched Peanut Cookies". However I didn't have time to find scorched peanuts, so made a few changes. I'm giving you the recipe with my changes. Hope you will like these, too.

 

Peanut & Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Peanut Butter

Ingredients

125 gr butter, chopped
1/4 cup (70 gr) peanut butter
3/4 cup (150 gr) firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 + 1/2 cups (225 gr) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
80 gr coarsly chopped cashew nuts
50 gr coarsly chopped dark chocolate (70% of cocoa)

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180 C / 375 F.
2. Beat butter, peanut butter, sugar and egg in the mixing bowl with electric mixer until combined well.
3. Sift the dry ingredients together, and add to butter mixture. Stir well. Then add chopped cashew nuts, and chocolate.
4. Flour your hands lightly. Roll rounded coffee spoons of mixture into balls, and flatten slightly with hand.
5. Base the baking trays with parchment. Place cookies 3 cm ( a bit more than 1 inch) apart on trays.
6. Bake in moderate oven until cookies lightly browned; cool on trays.

Note: In the original recipe it says to size dough with a teaspoon, and it gives 50 small cookies. I used coffee spoon in stead, and it made 35 medium cookies which I like more than small ones. So the size is up to your appetite.
