Yes, you read that right. These are chocolate cookies with tiny bits of peanut butter chip goodness.
As with every recipe, if you haven't noticed. I like to provide an ever-so brief history on the topic at hand. According to The Sugar Association, the first chocolate cookie recipe was introduced to Americans in 1930, by Ruth Wakefield who ran the Toll House restaurant in Whitman, Massachusetts.
They take just 20 minutes to prepare and then another 9 minutes of cooking time. In 30 minutes, you can have this treat at your fingertips. Even earlier if you decide not to bake them, but is also ill advised since it contains uncooked eggs. So, please do your stomach a favor and cook them. If you want to make just the dough, simply omit the egg and baking soda. There you have it, edible chocolate peanut butter chip cookie dough!
Now, here's the recipe you have all been waiting for.
