Easy Peasy One Bowl Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

This is a sponsored post.


Between the move and this heat wave it is a wonder I have turned my oven on at all! Thank goodness for the invention of AC. Without it there would be no cookies during our hot months. Though it has been hot and muggy outside, it is also rainy. The internet and cable had yet to be hooked up, and half of the kid's toys and books were still packed away. To cure their boredom, I let the boys loose in my new, clean kitchen to make some peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies. 


Baking with my kids is probably one of my favorite parts of the week. Letting them mess up the kitchen and let their little minds and taste buds create something is so entertaining.When I was their age one of the first things I remember baking was peanut butter cookies. My mom did all the hard work and I was allowed to do the crisscross markings with the fork.


Now that it's my turn to play mom and teacher, I let the kids take over. My oldest son knows how to measure and with some simple enough directions he can even sound out the recipe so he can read/direct his younger brother. This recipes only calls for a few ingredients, and only requires one bowl. Easy enough a first grader could bake them all on his own!






Easy Peasy One Bowl Peanut Butter Cookies 

Ingredients:
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Davidson's Safest Choice Egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup coarsely chopped milk chocolate

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375.

In a medium mixing bowl combine all of your ingredients. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Roll cookie dough into one inch balls. Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Using a fork lightly press the cookies down creating that traditional peanut butter cookie crisscross.

Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool completely before eating. Enjoy with a big glass of milk!

Recipe yields about 1 dozen cookies. 


What I loved most about making these cookies with the boys was that we could eat the cookie dough! I could safely allow them to try a bit here and there with no fear of foodborne illnesses thanks to Davidson's Safest Choice Pasteurized eggs. The dough was so good it is a wonder we even had any left to bake!
