We found this really simple yet delicious 4-ingredient Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe on Gimmie Some Oven yesterday and just had to try it!
These cookies are delicious, however very rich due to the quite high sugar content. I am a fan of sweet things so I enjoyed them, however someone who isn’t a fan of overly sweet or rich food may not like these very much! If I were making them again I probably wouldn’t roll them in the sugar before placing them on the baking sheet as they are sweet enough without adding the additional sugar.
1 cup Peanut Butter (crunchy or creamy)
1 cup sugar (plus extra for dipping, if desrired)
1/2 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 175 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix together the peanut butter, white sugar, egg and chocolate chips until smooth.
Form dough into round tablespoon-fulls then if desired roll into bowl of sugar to coat the outside of the dough ball.
Place on the baking sheet at least 2 inches apart, and flatten slightly with your hand or spatula.
If desired, place a few extra chocolate chips on top of each cookie for attractiveness and for extra yummy chocolate-ness.
Bake for 6-8 minutes, until the cookies are just slightly browned on the bottom, being careful not to over-bake.
Once cooked, remove and let cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
