Salted Peanut Butter Choc Chip Cookies!

Oh yeah, you read that right. Salt. Peanut butter. Chocolate. All in a cookie. Read it again just to be sure, it is just as amazing the second time you read it. I read somewhere about someone eating salted peanut cookies, and then I saw a choc chip cookie and I thought to myself "This is your opportunity to create the world's first super-cookie!"

Super Cookie: Salted Peanut Butter and Choc Chip 


INGREDIENTS
2 1/4 cup plain flour
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup margarine
1 1/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
1/4 cup raw sugar
2 eggs
2 cups dark chocolate chips
5 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
Coarse sea salt for sprinkling

METHOD
Melt your margarine and with an electric mixer beat the melted margarine and sugars together until thoroughly blended, add the eggs and continue to beat. Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and peanut butter to the mixing bowl slowly and beat on a low speed until just combined. Fold the choc chips through gently and refrigerate the dough for 2 hours; this is the secret to getting chewy, almost fudgey, cookies.

Preheat your oven to 175 C. Make small balls of dough and place them at least 3 cm apart on a lined baking tray, flatten slightly. Bake for between 9 and 11 minutes; two minutes before the cookies are done take them from the oven and sprinkle with sea salt. The cookies look underdone but they will continue cooking for once out of the oven. If the edges have started to brown before you pull them out then you've cooked them for too long.

Let them cool before you handle them too much or they will get saggy and misshapen, then eat your cookies! These are so tasty that Michael kept eating them until he felt sick. Twice.

    She's not exaggerating.. These cookies are the best cookies I've ever tasted. Make them, eat them. Set yourself a daily cookie limit because you wont be able to control yourself.
