Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies

It's Black Friday!!

My advice to any of you who are heading out into the scary world of black Friday shopping - arm yourself.  Not with weapons or credit cards - no, no - arm yourselves with SUGAR.  An adequate supply of sugar will carry you through the long lines at the checkout and might even come in as a valuable negotiating tool when an army of angry shoppers are arguing over the last toy on the shelf.

Take my advice shoppers - don't rely on coffee to carry you through the day.  Cookies work much better as energy boosters --- AND you can tuck them into your purse and get through even the most crowed isles without spilling your drink.  Shop hands free this year people - skip the coffee and pack cookies!

What better way to give yourself a little pick me up than with a cookie loaded with peanut butter, chocolate, butterscotch and white chocolate?

Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies
  • 1/2 cup of melted unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter morsels
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup of mini chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 and line a cookie baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly spray the parchment paper with cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together melted butter and brown sugar until combined. 
Whisk in the egg. 

Whisk in vanilla and peanut butter. 

Sift in flour, baking soda and salt. Mix until just combined. You will need to use your hands here and work the cookie dough until flour is no longer visible. 
Fold in peanut butter morsels, mini chocolate chips and white chocolate chips until evenly distributed. 

Form one inch balls with the cookie dough and place then on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 8-9 minutes.  Cool on wire racks. 

Bake a batch of loaded peanut butter cookies and shop on blog friends.  As for me, I'll be munching on my cookies on cyber Monday.
