double chocolate peanut butter cookies with walnuts
An indulgence! I added peanut butter just to see what would happen. Gives the cookies more depth. Very easy kid recipe!
2/3 cup cocoa 1 1/2 cups unbleached whole wheat flour (but any kind will do)
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup white sugar (I used a little less..)
9 Tbls butter room temp
1/2 cup peanut butter
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
Cream the orange ingredients until fluffy then add peanut butter and blend in by hand. Sift the blue ingredients into the orange ingredients. Stir in chips and walnuts.
Form 2-3 inch balls with hands, put on cookie sheet spacing apart at least 2 inches. Cook 20 minutes in a 325 degree oven.
