To keep from drowning in my own sorrows as I sit at home alone with Izzie today (as I have been used to about 7+ people around me the past 10 days), I decided to make cookies. Pour a glass of champagne. Devour the cookies. And, cuddle with Iz.
... It's working so far. And, I've managed to take down 5 cookies without a stomach ache. ...yet.
Peanut Butter-White Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter, crunchy
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon almond milk (regular milk is fine)
1 tablespoon maple-agave syrup (or vanilla)
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Line your baking sheet with parchment or a Silpat. In a large bowl, whip peanut butter, butter, sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, maple-agave, and milk. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Slowly, pour the flour mixture into the peanut butter mixture. Stir until just combined. Fold in white chocolate chips. Drop tablespoon-size balls of dough onto your baking sheet, about 1-inch apart, and bake for 10-15 minutes. Start checking at 10. Bake until a golden brown. Then, cool.
