Peanut Butter + Cherry Chip Holiday Cookies

TH_7 TH_9 TH_11 TH_1 TH_3 TH_4 TH_6 TH_10Happy Thursday guys! I’ve got a new and exciting recipe post to share with you all today, a classic chocolate chip cookie with a holiday twist! I’m teaming up with Nestle Toll House to share their new line of Holiday DelightFulls, which are basically a more heavenly version of their regular chocolate chips. They’re filled with all sorts of fun stuff like cherry, caramel, peanut butter, mint and more. I really had to exert some strength not to just eat the entire bag while trying to put this recipe together! I chose cherry and caramel for my two options and decided on a peanut butter cookie to really hit it out of the park. Check it out below!

What you’ll Need:
1 Cup Sugar
1 Stick Butter (room temp)
1 Egg
1 Cup Smooth Peanut Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Bag Toll House DelightFulls

A cookie recipe like this is pretty straight forward and it’s a great thing to have in your recipe bank for those last minute dessert needs. I’m a huge fan of peanut butter cookies and I thought those cherry chips would really add some great holiday flavor. The recipe is pretty straight forward, take your dry ingredients from the list above (flour, salt, baking soda) and mix that in with the wet (sugar, butter, egg, vanilla, peanut butter) then combine all that in a large mixing bowl. I like to use my hands when mixing recipes like this, I think you can get a better consistency for the dough rather than using a wooden spoon or spatula. After you’ve got your dough all set, mix in a generous amount of the chocolate chips! I say generous, but I’m a total chocolate freak. From there just take spoonfulls of the dough and roll them out into balls and place them on your cookie sheet. Bake 9-11 mins at 375 (depending on your oven) then voila!! I split my dough into two different bowls just so I could try out both types of chocolate chips and although I did love the caramel chips more plain, I liked the cherry chips better in the cookies. Let me know what you guys think and thanks to Nestle Toll House for sponsoring my sweet tooth this weekend!

OH! P.s. I wanted to make them a little more holiday-ish so I threw on some gold and red sprinkles about 6 mins into the baking time. This keeps the sprinkles more in tact rather than mixing them in the dough! Enjoy!
