I think the bartender in me came out in this set of photos. That and I was going to see the Sex & the City movie that evening…so I might have had Cosmpolitans and martinis on the brain. I came up with the martini idea the night before when I couldn’t sleep because of all the cookie dough and cookies I’d eaten at 11:30 at night.
These are peanut butter chocolate chip cookies…made because of a late night request from the boyfriend. I worked a double shift and got home and he wanted dessert. The strawberry jam bars on the counter apparently weren’t good enough. Nor were the fresh strawberries and Cool Whip in the fridge. He wanted cookies. After triple checking to make sure he wasn’t going to be asleep before I finished baking them, I relented and made the cookies.
The recipe for these is from Dorie Greenspan’s Baking From My Home to Yours. I checked it out from the library and kind of wanted to buy it…and miraculously it was marked down to $12.99 when I looked at amazon.com‘s bargain books last week. So I own it now. If it’s still on sale at amazon, buy it! (Whoa, I just tried to find the link to the cookbook on amazon and their site is mysteriously unavailable. Weird.)
I didn’t change the recipe at all other than to add a handful of peanut butter chips in addition to the semi-sweet chocolate chips. I did purposely underbake the cookies because we like them better that way.
