That's How The Cookie Crumbles

During the week, my kitchen is usually only used for tea, toast, sandwiches and Caelen's meals, with the occasional quick meal thrown so I don't feel so guilty.  The weekends, however, are filled with lovely food (generally thanks to Tommie!) and the baked goods are left in my not-so-capable hands.  Today was no exception, with a dinner of stuffed chicken and potato gratin, and ooey, gooey cookies for dessert.


Recently, I've been cutting corners with my baking, but today I threw caution to the wind and made double chocolate peanut butter cookies from scratch.  And boy, were they good.  I'd spent the last couple of days searching for something  relatively easy and delicious to make on Pinterest, but I hit hurdles every step of the way.  Like the amazing looking chocolate chip and peanut butter cookie dough bites?  Sounds mouthwatering, right?  Until I realised that the main ingredient was chickpeas.  Who the fuck bakes chocolatey treats with chickpeas?  Not me, thats who.  




But back to the cookies.  I used this recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything that I found on Pinterest last night.  Not having ANY form of proper measuring equipment, I had to make do with a Pyrex measuring glass.  Next time, I'll be stealing my chef brother's gear and making them right.  The resulting cookies were really moist and sticky before they went into the oven, so much so that I was afraid that they wouldn't work out.  The dough tasted absolutely divine though.  That said, they did go down a treat, even if we did eat almost twenty large cookies between us.  Now, it's time to finish my tea and lie down from all of the eating I've done this weekend!
