Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Freezer Cookies

cpbchipWe made the plunge and got a Ninja! Woot.
I’ve been dying to use some of the other attachments {I’ve been making so many smoothies}, so I made cookies.
This was done with the larger, food processor attachment of the Ninja Mega System.

This is blending up the butter…

…And this is what it looks like with the sugar.IMG_6232
Overall the processor bowl {with the dough attachment} things blended fairly well. In reviews people talked about how quick things were to blend and I thought that it would end up being much quicker than it was.
Nonetheless, it ended up being fairly quick, did a good job, and contained the mess well. One thing that I really liked was that I added the chips and blended {probably not as long or as well as I should have} and it didn’t do what many mixers or food processor would do. It actually mixed the chips, and didn’t break them up or fracture them! I was impressed.IMG_6233Here’s the recipe:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 bag peanut butter filled chocolate chips {Nestle makes them}

Using the Ninja {this can obviously be done in the mixer too}

  1. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
  2. Add in eggs, vanilla, and brown sugar.
  3. Add in flour, baking soda, and salt.  Mix well.
  4. Mix in chocolate chips.

If making right away: Spoon onto baking sheet spaced a couple inches apart and bake at a 375 degree oven for 8-10 minutes (mine took about 9). Cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet, then place on wire rack to finish cooling.

If freezing: Spoon onto baking sheet, using a silicone mat or parchment paper for underneath to avoid sticking. I spaced mine apart enough to not let them stick together. If they do they can be broken apart, but I try to avoid that. Freeze for a few hours, or overnight. Remove from sheet, store in a large gallon ziplock bag marked with the date. When ready to bake, put dough on cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes {it will take longer because they’re frozen}.
