Who doesn’t love a good cookie?  I developed this recipe for my mom, who requested a wholesome pb cookie.. I ended up LOVING this recipe and made them for my son’s birthday party this week.  Enjoy!!

Delicious PB Choco-Chip Cookies

2/3 c Organic Peanut Butter, room temperature

1/2 lb unsalted butter, room temperature

1 c raw organic sugar

2 eggs

2 t vanilla

2 1/2 c whole wheat flour

2 c dark chocolate chips (more or less depending on preference)

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream peanut butter, butter, and sugar.  Add eggs one at a time, mixing well with each addition.  Mix in vanilla.  Add flour, a little bit at a time until combined.

2.  Refrigerate for 1h – 2 days or freeze for 1 month.  When ready for baking, shape into teaspoon-size balls and place 2″ apart on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Press a fork into the top of each cookie to smash them down a little and create a criss-cross pattern.  Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until slightly browned on top.

3.  Enjoy with a glass of delicious cold milk!  🙂
