Feeding people is my love language. (Not just people, really, I love feeding my critters too). One of my favorite things is to whip up a batch of cookies or bake a loaf of bread for a friend. It’s my little way of telling them I love them.
I read, once, of a woman who prays over her knitting for the person the project is for. That is a little bit of what I do when I bake for you. I think about you as I cream together butter and sugar. I am grateful for you as I sprinkle in baking powder. I pray for your struggles as I fold in the chocolate chips. And I hope, that with the gift of these cookies, you know that I love you and am always here for you.
So, if you get the chance this week, make some cookies for someone you love. These even have whole wheat flour in them…so they are kinda healthy, right?
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 1/4 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 ounces 1/2 bag mini chocolate chips
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper (or grease them).
- In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter and peanut butter together.
- Stir in brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and vanilla.
- Add in flour 1/2 cup at a time. It is always possible you will need slightly less flour than the recipe calls for. Your dough should be thick but not dry.
- Fold in mini chocolate chips.
- Scoop cookie dough by the tablespoonful onto cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes.
- Allow to cool and enjoy. Preferably with a tall glass of milk.
