Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

The other day I logged into my Facebook account and discovered a link my cousin sent me, which was to a peanut butter chocolate chunk cookie recipe. The first thing I saw when I clicked on the link:

Naturally, my reaction upon seeing this  was:

(On a side note: isn’t Tina Fey simply magnificent?)

The blog Averie Cooks posted the recipe, along with some stunning pictures such as the one above. They just so happen to be gluten-free, because there’s no flour. (For those of you who question the concept of flourless bakery items: they are AMAZING. Even if you aren’t gluten-free, cake and cookies made without flour are so rich and dense)


An example of flourless chocolate cake, for any nonbelievers. Consider yourself converted.

So, I went to there.

The ingredients are very simple- peanut butter, brown sugar, an egg, vanilla, baking soda, and chocolate chunks/chips.

I deviated from the directions by using all-natural peanut butter (from Trader Joe’s, of course), and I used chocolate chips instead of chocolate chunks. The recipe warns that using all-natural peanut butter will make the cookies thin and flat, but mine were anything but. I’m sure the chocolate chunks would make the cookies even more chocolaty, but I had chocolate chips on hand instead.


The cookies came out of the oven still in the ball shape they were originally placed in, so I had to squish them down with a fork (refer to the original recipe saying they would get too flat). But overall they were very good.
