What’s better than chocolate chip cookies? Chocolate & peanut butter chip cookies!

I went for a 90 minute massage on Saturday and let me tell you, it was one of the most therapeutic things you can ever do for yourself. I haven’t felt that relaxed in over a year. You just let everything go for those 90 minutes and you come out so much more calm and ready to take on the world again. I highly recommend it. In fact, I think it’s a rule that we all should have 90 minute massages quarterly. Yup, Julie’s rules.

Another therapeutic thing that I have found, that’s also a heck of a lot cheaper is cooking. We all know that we love being in the kitchen experimenting and taking out our anger on dough, but what I have found to be therapeutic is test baking. You get lost in thought and you start scribbling everything down in your notebook, crossing things out, racking your brain for what the most logical combination is. It actually zones you out of real life for just a second because you’re so entranced by what you’re trying to create.

I’ve baked numerous cookies now and I know the gist of what goes in every cookie recipe. Flour, baking soda, butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, brown sugar (sometimes), etc. But I’ve never ever created my own recipe before. I’ve always adapted or I’ve always just followed someone else’s recipe because I’m too afraid to mess up or get deflated cookies or get cookies that are too crumbly. This past weekend I decided to take a chance and experiment in the kitchen. I whipped up a batch of cookies with what knowledge I had of baking cookies in the past and you know what? They weren’t a fail! In fact, they turned out great. I was extremely surprised.

These cookies have a very fluffy texture to them, it’s as if I used caked flour. Jason said they were delicious, and being my taste-tester, I trust him that he’s telling the truth. What I was even more happy about was that these held their shape. They didn’t deflate, but instead, they kept their big poofy cookie shape. Surprised me, that’s for sure. I used Reese’s peanut butter chips and Ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate chips for these. I love peanut butter and chocolate together so I decided to mix both in the cookie :) the more the better, right?

Hi! I would just like to ask what is the size of the cookies that you made?

Not exactly sure what you mean as I didn't measure it at the time of baking. I just used a medium sized cookie scoop from OXO. I would think the cookie is about 3-4 inches in diameter.
