I think I have previously told you about my friend Niall. Niall loves peanut butter. When I was at university and everyone was mocking American candy, Niall would defend Reeses and their brilliant combination of peanut butter and chocolate – one thing Americans do well is peanut butter!
I love to bake for my friends on Valentine’s Day and so, for Niall, this had to be the most peanut buttery cookie ever. I went to the grocery store and pretty much hunted down anything with peanut butter which could be thrown into a cookie – I think maybe this is peanut butter enough for Niall? But I’ll let you know what he thinks!
So Peanut Buttery Cookies (adapted from Nestle Tollhouse)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup peanut butter (I used this Reeses spread, but regular peanut butter would be fine)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 cups plain flour
1 cup peanut butter chips
