Food Blog Friday: Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies from Sugarhero.com
So, I have decided that it is high time I try more of those recipes and, to make sure I stick to it, I will post the link to a recipe on another blog that I have tried and loved every Friday.
This week's recipe is for peanut butter banana chocolate chip cookies. It comes from Sugarhero.com. I came across Sugarhero while participating in Tuesdays With Dorie and it has become one of my favorite dessert blogs. Its author is a trained pastry chef and her blog features a lot of creative and imaginitive takes on old standbys.
These cookies caught my eye because I love the combination of peanut butter and banana. I also love chocolate chip cookies. So, my thinking was that combining them would be nothing less than spectacular.
As it turns out, I was right. This recipe takes no time at all and it gave me 27 soft cookies that were loaded with chocolate. For the most part, I was able to simply follow the recipe to the letter. The only thing I had to do differently was that I had to press my cookies down before baking; when I didn't, they didn't spread properly.
Next time, I will have to try using them for ice cream sandwiches. I'm sure they would be particularly delicious with chocolate ice cream. If only I had had some on hand....
