You don’t see that everyday. And fellow Gilmore Girls fans…are you thinking the dog owner looks a little like Luke? :)
As I regroup after a lovely week away in Utah, here is a tried and true recipe to share before I get back into my kitchen. Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies are just what you think of when you conjure up the perfect chipper with peanut butter dough. The bit of sugar sprinkled on before baking gives the cookies an incredible flavor and texture boost.
Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 3/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. Combine flour and baking soda in small bowl.
3. Beat butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in egg. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels.
4. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Press down slightly with bottom of glass dipped in granulated sugar.
5. Bake cookies for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are set but centers are still soft. Cool on baking sheets for 4 minutes then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies

‘Glass’, new from San Francisco-based band Sunset Lines, sure packs a punch. The brooding guitars slide into an “Oh Oh” introduction to some synthy loveliness.
