This is a very peanut butter heavy affair. The result is a peanutty chewy glory.
Shit you’ll need:
- 227g of peanut butter. Smooth or crunchy is fine. Mine are made with crunchy in this instance.
- 198g of sweetened condensed milk.
- 1 egg.
- 4tsp of cornflour, heaped.
- 100g chocolate chips. I used milk ones.
Piss easy to make. Combine all your ingredients in a bowl, you will get a stiff but sticky batter rather than a dough. Spoon onto a baking tray leaving plenty of room between each, as they spread a bit. Bake for fifteen minutes in the middle of your oven on a medium heat.
Yields twelve, but it’s better to make them in two batches of six because of the spreading. These were a total experiment, I wanted to see if the ingredients would work, and well you can see they did. It makes a light but chewy cookie. The condensed milk negates the need for extra sugar. The cornflour keeps things from getting too heavy with the amount of peanut butter used.
Stuff in yer gob as desired. Belch in appreciation, and REJOICE.
This is not my recipe, it’s one I’ve slightly altered for my own tastes. The original recipe is HERE.
I used egg replacer, and substituted the packed brown sugar for muscovado sugar, and the standard sugar for icing sugar. If you want a dairy free option, try using coconut oil or vegetable oil in place of the butter, either will work. Using a high cocoa content dark chocolate will be fine to keep any milk out of the process. I’ve said before that I keep egg replacer in my cupboards because it’s very economical to do so for the price.
It was so bloody hard NOT to just scoff allllll the dough.
The first six.
My kitchen smelled fucking amazing with these baking. The last photo is a pile of eleven, because obviously I had to scoff a warm cookie when they were ready, duh.
I felt that 3am-ish was the perfect time for me to fuck about in the kitchen and make the aforementioned cookies. This recipe makes cookies that when cool, are slightly crispy on the outside, but nice and chewy when you sink yer teeth into them.
COOKIE DOUGH NOT TURDS.
Believe me I made more than four of these delicious little fuckers, I baked a batch of six, and left the rest of the dough in the fridge overnight just in case I need more cookies tomorrow. Obviously I’m going to need more cookies tomorrow, or else I might die. It could absolutely happen.
Pre-heat yer oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
- 100g caster sugar.
- 165g muscovado sugar.
- 115g unsalted butter, or equivalent, softened.
- 1tsp salt.
- 1/2 bicarbonate of soda.
- An egg.
- 155g plain flour.
- 1tsp vanilla essence or extract.
- 100g chocolate chips – milk or dark work best with this combination.
- 1/4 tube of chilli purée – my tube was an 80g Gia brand. You can adjust this depending on how much you like chilli. I like my tastebuds, so I don’t use the whole thing obviously.
Wang the sugars and butter into a bowl, and cream thoroughly. Add the egg, vanilla, bicarbonate, and chilli purée, and combine thoroughly. Spoon in the flour and salt gradually, and finally add whichever chocolate chips you’ve chosen, making sure they’re spread properly unless you want a set of wonky cookies. I mean you might, that’s entirely up to you.
Cover the bowl, and stuff it in the fridge for thirty minutes. After the dough has chilled out for a while, take it out and spoon it onto a greased baking tray, giving each blob of dough plenty of room because these buggers like to spread. Bake for fifteen minutes.
When they’re done, allow to cool a bit before stuffing them in yer gob. I lasted about thirty seconds before I picked one up and crammed one in, because I’m an unabashed oinklet.
CHEWY CHOCOLATEY CHILLI GOODNESS.
Insert obligatory drooling noises here. You should get about twelve cookies out of this lot.
