Chocolate-Peanut Butter Chippers September 15, 2010

And here is the 3rd recipe I made so far from The Deen Bros. Cookbook — Recipes from the Road.  I love these cookies!  They turned out nice a chewy, just how I like them and have a great peanut butter flavor.

One thing I noticed while making this recipe was the tablespoon of corn syrup that is added.  I can’t remember ever adding that to any other cookie recipes, so I did a quick search to see what the reason was — to make cookies softer…is this true?  I know it’s not a healthy ingredient by any means, but 1 T in 54 cookies can’t be bad, unless you sit and eat them all at once :)

The funny thing is I couldn’t post these recipes soon enough…I’ve already made 2 more recipes from this book, definitely worth purchasing in my mind! Come back soon and I’ll be sharing the others with you!

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Chippers

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 1/4 cups smooth or crunchy peanut butter

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar

2/3 cup white sugar

2 large eggs

1 T light corn syrup

2 tsp vanilla

1 10-oz bag milk or semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 2 large baking sheets; set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.  In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the peanut butter, butter, and sugars until fluffy.  Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.  Beat in the corn syrup and vanilla.  Slowly add the flour mixture; mix until fully combined.  Fold in the chocolate chips and peanuts.

Drop the cookie dough by heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets.  Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.  Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.

    I made these yesterday…they are tasty but mine didn’t spread while baking. Any idea why? I didn’t beat the eggs etc. because no electricity at the time. Do you think that makes a big difference?
