Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies

A friend was saying, “I didn’t see any Skinny Recipe on your blog yesterday.” I don’t know as to whether I should be sorry that I could not write a Skinny Mondays blog post or should I be glad that someone actually noticed.

I didn’t get to update the blog as I spent 4 days at my second brother’s house. It is customary for me and mom to spend some time with the brother and family during the school holidays.

Needless to say, my weekend was FUN! I baked with the nieces, cooked good food, drank a lot of cold drinks (while closing the kitchen door, so that mommie wouldn’t catch us) and I also did a “photo-shoot” for the nieces plus we had delicious cookies sandwiched with ice cream right after that. It was around 1 am! Ah…the cool things that we young and cute girls do. (Ahem)

Over a period of 2 days, we baked salted chocolate chip cookie, peach and cream cupcakes, blueberry crumb cake and Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies for which I would be sharing the recipe. Imagine having a bite into the rich chocolate cookie while biting in the other half gives you peanut butter cookies. How cool is that? You can of course gobble the whole cookie at one go, if your mouth is as big as mine. It is just like having the best of both worlds, at the same time.

When it comes to cookies, which camp are you in? I like mine crunchy! These cookies are chewy and soft if you bake it for 15 minutes and they turn crisp if you bake if for more. So the choice is really yours.

Eid is coming up next month. Wanna try something new for your guests this year? Look no further. Grab the recipe right now! arrow
