Peanut butter Cookies with Chocolate

Sure we have wonderful products here such as Olive oil, Rioja wine, Piquillo peppers… and so many others, but I have recently discovered Peanut butter and I must confess I am totally devoted to its delicious flavour and aroma!
My daughter and I are starting our “spring diet” which is nothing special…. just eating healthy, seasonal and lots of vegetables and fruits. But, these cookies are shaking our will and making it real hard to follow the rules.

I have run out of the Delicious ingredient and I have to place an order to my online supermarket today… Will I be weak?
Yes, I was weak… I did it again (like Britney Spears), but this time I bought the crunchy type; I was curious about the difference between one and the other and it’s mainly about the small peanut pieces that you can find in it. I liked the creamy type better. And I invite everybody to taste it. I think that here in Spain, we only hear about peanut butter in the movies and it’s high time we use it in our kitchens!


Ingredients for a batch of humango cookies: 1/2 a cup of butter, 1/2 a cup of sugar, 1/2 a cup of brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar, 1 egg, 3/4 a cup of Peter Pan creamy peanut butter, 1 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, a pinch of salt and 1 cup of chocolate chips.
  • Preheat oven at 180ºC.
  • Have the butter at room temperature and mix with the sugars and the egg until you get an homogeneous dough. Add the peanut butter and mix again. You can use an electric mixer if you want.
  • Sift the flour in a different bowl and add the baking powder and the salt. Mix and add to the first dough. Use a spatula to get an homogeneous dough again. Add the choco chips.
  • With the help of two spoons, make little balls and place over the oven paper on the oven's tray. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the cookies get golden on top.
  • Place over a rack to cool them down.... and devour them!!!

Que rico Nuria, here in the U.S.A. Peanut Butter is a common staple you can find it in most people’s refrigerators and it is EXTREMELY affordable and cheap, every store carries it. Most commonly enjoyed as a sandwich, you spread it on toast bread, with strawberry or grape jam. A very tastey snack, I also like to spread it on two slices of sandwich bread, and in the middle i put banana slices, and if you don’t mind the calories a good drizzle of honey.

Of course it’s a great ingredient for cookies :) and goes VERY well with chocolate, I use to make “Peanut Butter & Nutella Sandwiches” SINFUL and delicious haha :)

However I would sacrifice Peanut butter for some having the wonderful products you guys enjoy, the olive oil, Spanish wines, and cured meats and Spanish sausages are well something that’s extremely over priced and not of the best quality down here :/

The cookies look and sound wonderful. I have tried making peanut butter cookies and they were wonderful but did not blow my mind away :)
