Who doesn’t love a good chocolate chip cookie? Try these Peanut Chocolate Chip Cookies when you’re craving chocolate and peanuts.
What makes a cookie chewy? A few things. Using brown sugar helps to retain moisture while baking, as does butter, which has more water in it than its counterpart shortening. Melted butter will result in the cookie spreading vs cold butter which produces a more rounded cookie. Also, using a shorter baking time will result in a chewier cookie.
Notice that this recipe uses half butter and half shortening. Cookies using all shortening tend to be softer and “taller”. If you mix shortening and butter, then you have the added taste of the butter in the recipe.
What about chocolate? Semi-sweet are my go-to chocolate chips, but I also like bittersweet chocolate chips–although they are harder to find in the grocery store. As for brands, my favorite is Ghirardelli. I love the size, taste, and the way they melt in my baked goods.
