Marbled Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Marbled Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies by Rumbly in my Tumbly.I’m baaaaaack, ladies and gentleman!  Off of bedrest and with a beautiful 3 week old baby girl in my arms, and feeling almost 100%.  Baby Phoebe made her entrance the day after my Hawks lost in the most devastating Superbowl ever, on Groundhog Day, making everything better.  We are all in love with her. Here she is:

She’s beautiful, right? Thank you, thank you very much. 😉

Thank you all for your patience while I barely blogged for the last few months.  Now, on to very important issues, like these Marbled Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies.  I will admit, these were a 9-months-pregnant-and-I-need-chocolate-and-peanut-butter kind of invention.  I thought “wouldn’t it be great to take a chocolate cookie and a peanut butter cookie and mash them together and bake them?  And so I did.

I used my handy and Allrecipes.com Tried and True Cookie Cookbook (If you don’t have this cook book, go out and buy it immediately.) and I used their double chocolate cookie recipes and my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe out of there.  I made half a batch of each, and then I took half a scoop of each dough, folded them together, and baked them.

Magic.  Gooey, soft, peanut butter and chocolate cookie perfection.

Enjoy!

(I’m writing the recipe out as I did it- using half a batch of each cookie recipe, to make one full batch.)
Note: These cookies require an hour of chill time.

Double Chocolate Cookie Dough:
Ingredients:
1/2 cup room temperature butter
3/4 cups white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup of chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)

Directions:
Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add the egg and vanilla and mix well.  Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined, then fold in chocolate chips.  Place in the fridge while you make the peanut butter cookie dough.

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough:
Ingredients:
3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup room temperature butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:
Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Add the egg, peanut butter, and vanilla, and mix well.  Add in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

Place in the refrigerator with the chocolate cookie dough and chill for at least one hour.

After chilling, preheat the oven to 350°.  Take a tablespoon of each dough, and gently combine them/fold them together into a ball.  Slightly flatten them and place them on a cookie sheet a couple of inches apart.

Bake for 8-10 minutes until slightly browned at the edges.  Do not overbake, they will continue to cook on the cookie sheet when you pull them out of the oven, and a slightly underbaked cookie will result in a much softer/chewier cookie after they have cooled.

Store in an airtight container.
