It’s less than 3 weeks to Christmas. For housewives who are celebrating this festive, I’m sure you all are busy hunting for all sorts of recipes now. You cannot afford to celebrate Christmas without a good serving of cakes and cookies, can you? So here’s a recipe for peanut chocolate chip cookies (covered with more chocolate!) that I found from a book. I have not tried it, but it’s simple so I think it’s worth sharing the recipe here.

Chocolate-covered peanut chocolate chip cookies

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine — softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate-covered peanuts
1 cup milk chocolate chips

1. Heat oven to 375ºF (~190ºC). Beat sugar, butter, shortening, vanilla and egg in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon.

2. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in peanuts and chocolate chips.

3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto
ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown (centers will be soft). Cool 1 to 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

Not complicated at all eh? 😉
