Thank You, Thank You Very Much!

by Jennifer Wieland

Six months ago today was the day that I made my first blog post here. At the time I didn’t realize that the half-year mark of the blog would fall on April Fool’s Day and that I would have been shopping for a new laptop the week leading up to it. (R.I.P. old laptop) Unfortunately though, that is what happened.
Thank you to everyone who takes time out of their busy lives to stop by and read my little blog. I truly do appreciate each and every one of you.
I have wanted to post this recipe since last week. I was so amazed at how good this recipe came out. I have made it a few times now and have had lots of taste testers try it and everyone has loved it! The recipe is for a cookie I call the Elvis Triple Chip Cookie. They are chewy cookies that have a great blend of peanut butter, banana and chocolate. The recipe makes a ton of dough so it is great for a party or bake sale and will definitely be different from the norm.

The Elvis Triple Chip Cookie

The Elvis Triple Chip Cookie

1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 c. salted butter, softened
3/4 c. mashed banana
2 1/2 c. brown sugar, firmly packed
1/3 c. milk
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
11 oz. pkg. Nestle peanut butter and milk chocolate chip morsels
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels

Preheat oven to 375° and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment beat the peanut butter, butter, banana, brown sugar, milk and vanilla on medium speed until well blended. Add the eggs and beat until just combined.

Combine flour and baking soda in a bowl and whisk together. Add to creamed mixture and mix on low speed until just incorporated. Stir in the peanut butter, milk and semi-sweet chips.

Drop dough onto lined baking sheets and bake for 9-11 minutes, until the edges start to brown. Cool for a few minutes on pan and then move to a wire rack to finish cooling.
