Hi everyone 🙂
It’s been a long time coming, who knew so soon to after starting this blog I would get so busy, and not spend time doing what I love….cooking and baking! Well, the long wait is over. I’m here, I’m back and I’m ready to spend more time doing what makes me happy. Quick update in the personal life, I started the journey to become a yoga teacher, and you will be happy to know I will be done my course in November. I can’t believe how the time has flown. I’m sure in my upcoming posts I will link in back to yoga, so don’t be surprised.
I am off work today, but am going in for a quick meeting this afternoon, so I decided why not bring a snack for everyone. I went through Pinterest last night and a few recipes stood out to me. I finally landed on Puffy (or Fluffy) Vanilla Peanut Butter Chip Cookies! I got the recipe here if you want to check it out http://www.averiecooks.com/2012/03/puffy-vanilla-and-peanut-butter-chip-cookies.html
- 1/2 cup of Crisco (or vegetable shortening, unsalted butter or margarine)
- 1/2 cup of white sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon of water
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1 1/2 cups of flour
- 3/4 cups of peanut butter chips
Pre-heat oven to 375 and line your cookie pans with parchment paper. In a medium to large bowl mix together, white sugar, brown sugar, egg, Crisco, water and vanilla. Mix on medium speed until it get’s to a thicker creamier texture. Next add in cinnamon, flour, baking soda and salt, using the mixer again on medium until you get a consistent thickness. Add in peanut butter chips with a wooden spoon, folding them into the dough. Cover and place in fridge approx 30 minutes. This will give the cookies the fluffy look!
When the dough is ready roll into small balls about 1 inch in size and bake in the oven 8-10 minutes. I got about 30 cookies out of this depends the size you make them. Make sure not to overcook, 8 minutes was perfect, and they were a nice golden brown colour. Let the cookies sit for 5 minutes before taking off the sheet.
Enjoy! Happy Eating
