Peanutbutter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yesterday was even more manic than normal. I was up at 5:20, showered, hung a load of washing up, made Dylan's pack lunch, fed Ellie the dog, quick clean round, emptied the dishwasher and out of the house by 5:50.

Did all I had to do, got back home by 1, cleared up, tried again to sort out my i-photo to no avail it's driving me Crazy. I wish I was more technically minded, anyway Dylan's friend Charlie who is a whiz on computers kindly said he'd have a look for me (unfortunately even he couldn't fathom the blimin thing).

I collected the boys and Megan (Charlie's girlfriend) from school they jump in the car and ask what i've baked? to which I couldn't reply, so quick as a flash (which is very unusual for me) I remembered these little Gems that you can knock up and have on the table within 25 -30 mins..........

150g crunchy peanut butter
150g butter (Softened)
100g demerera sugar
100g caster sugar
75g chopped or chips chocolate
1 large egg
150g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda 
1/2 tsp baking powder

Mix butter, peanut butter and sugars together until nice and fluffy, stir in egg then flour, chocolate chips, bicarb and baking powder, mixture should be nice and loose, now you can either use a teaspoon (for very small) a tablespoon for medium or for big whoppers an ice cream scoop, to transfer onto a lined baking tray or 2, I cook in the top oven of my Aga*, the smallest I will cook for about 8-10 mins getting out half way and slamming onto a folded tea towel on the side, this disperses any air and you get that lovely chewy cookie, the medium size a couple of minutes more and the giant a couple minutes more than the medium.

If you really want to indulge you can add a square of the posher chocolate onto the top gives a really lovely finish.  

*Ps if not using an Aga i'd say at about 180 in a fan oven
