Mmmmm...Cookies


A few months ago, I re-discovered my favorite cookies. Aaron was flying a couple nights ago which means Finn and I are usually tired and bored from 6-8pm. So instead of watching TV, we whipped up these yummy treats! Seriously, they are so yummy. They are JUMBO (you drop them by 1/4 cup!) and they always turn out so chewy and delicious. Got the recipe from my sister Megan and now I am sharing it with you! Please make them...you won't regret it.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 C softened butter
1/2 C peanut butter
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C sugar
2 eggs
2 T corn syrup
2 T water
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 C chocolate chips

In a large bowl cream butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time. Add corn syrup, water and vanilla.
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually stir flour mixture into sugar mixture. Fold in chocolate chips.
Drop by 1/4 C full of dough onto ungreased sheet and squish flat. (1/4 inch thick and round.) Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes until edges are golden. (Top does NOT look done but will set). Makes 18 cookies. By leaving the drop size so big, they are sure to be chewy!

I was thinking "I love that picture of Finn" But then I watched the video...he is so cute asking for milk with his cookie dough! I still haven't made them, but I definitely need to!

I love how Finn says "milk" and signs for it, AND then says "OK" when you ask him if he wants some milk. So Cute, and I wish I had one of those cookies right now!
