Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whoever came up with the combination of chocolate and peanut butter needs to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.  This is one of those classic flavor combinations that is truly all-American and very popular with the generations. In fact, I think that it is one of my favorites.  It's hard to beat a peanut butter cup during Easter and Halloween.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

For those of us who can't get enough of that favored duo, this recipe is for you. The cookie is tender, light, sweet, full of that peanut butter flavor we all love in a cookie, plus it has the added bonus of chocolate chips.  What could be better?


Take a moment to click on the printable recipe below.  Go over the ingredients and locate them in your pantry, and start baking.  This is the kind of recipe that is easily done on a lazy weekend morning or afternoon.  If your kids can partake of peanuts, make sure that you keep plenty of these in the cookie jar.  Everyone is going to want them.

When the cookies come out of the oven they are puffy and just the right size. Upon cooling, though, the cookies do settle and get those wonderful cracks and crevices.  Don't be tempted to move them until they have firmed up after cooling on racks.

Back when I used to have more time on my hands for blogging, I used to write down recipes that I thought would be good to share here.  I'm glad I never threw away this particular recipe because it is a keeper.  

If you have small jadeite plates, make sure that you use them to eat one or two of these cookies.  I don't know what it is but everything tastes better on old Fire King jadeite from the 40s and 50s.

This cookie is meant to be eaten and enjoyed whenever you have the craving for peanut butter and chocolate.  If you want, you can certainly use chunky peanut butter in place of the smooth variety.  For the chocolate chips, I go between Ghirardelli and NestlĂ© semisweet chocolate chips, but use whichever your family prefers.


Get baking!

Antique Salt Cellars

There was a time when salt cellars played an important role on the dining table for the host or hostess.  As a result of it being such an expensive commodity several hundred years ago, salt was seen as a luxury and it was the well to do that made salt cellars quite fashionable & a status symbol for the home.  A single salt cellar usually sat at the head of the table and was passed around throughout the meal.  The closer one sat to the salt cellar, the more important one was deemed by the head of the household.  Smaller cellars that were more accessible and with an open top became a part of Victorian table settings.  Fast forward to the 20th century when salt was no longer a luxury and when anti caking agents were added to make salt free-flowing, and one begins to see salt cellars fall out of fashion.  Luckily for the collector and for those of us who like to set a table with Good Things , this can prove to be a boon. Salt cellars for the table come in silver, porcelain, cut glass

How to Paint a Chair

If you have ever felt the need to spruce up a set of chairs or give them a new look, why not try a little bit of paint?  Our tastes in decor and color will probably alter throughout our lives, and at some point, we may find ourselves wanting to change the look of our furniture without having to spend a lot of money.  That's where a few handy tips, some tools from the hardware store, and good-quality paint come in handy.   I know I'm not alone in paying visits to local antique shops, antique fairs and flea markets, and falling in love with pieces of furniture that would be perfect if they were just a different color.  You don't have to walk away from a good purchase simply because it's the wrong color.   My dear friend, Jeffrey, is forever enhancing his home with collectibles from flea markets and tag sales.  However, certain items aren't always up to Jeffrey's tastes when he brings them home.  He is the type of person who won't hesitate to chang

Vintage Wilton Wedding Cakes

Wedding cakes have certainly evolved over the decades just as tastes and styles have in our American way of life.  There was a time when elaborate & very formal towering feats of sweetness were the standard for every bride & groom.  Growing up in a household where I witnessed several wedding cakes take shape from start to finish, I can tell you  that every single one of these was a true labor of love.  For mom, Wilton was the go-to supplier in every aspect of cake baking, including the wedding cakes which flew out of our house every single year for friends & family.   Vintage Wedding Cake Toppers It’s fun going back and looking at Wilton’s methods and styles for wedding cakes during the 1960s and 1970s.  Back then, the shapely cakes were not simply stacked and covered in perfect fondant the way they are these days, but were iced and decorated with real buttercream, along with a multitude of accessories.  There was even a working fountain available that could b
