I am from Gambo, NL, located on the east coast of Canada, in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. My hometown of Gambo was once divided into three smaller communities, known as Middle Brook, Dark Cove & Gambo. I grew up in Dark Cove, and absolutely love to cook and bake, so I thought what better name could there be for my first blog than 'My Dark Cove Pantry'. Even though I now live in Flatrock, and now have a new pantry, it will always be 'My Dark Cove Pantry'.
Here is a great recipe that I tried for the first time yesterday.......
Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups
cup unsalted butter, melted1
cup light brown sugar, packed1/2
cup creamy peanut butter
cup granulated sugar1
tablespoon vanilla extract
cups all-purpose flour1/2
teaspoon baking soda
cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 12-count standard-sized
muffin pan extremely well with floured cooking spray or grease and flour the
NOTE**** I used three 8-cup pans-they are about half the
size of regular muffin cups
In a large,
microwave-safe mixing bowl, melt the butter, then add brown sugar, peanut
butter, granulated sugar, vanilla, and whisk until smooth.Then add egg.
Add the flour,
baking soda, optional salt, and stir until just combined; don't over-mix.Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips; reserve
remainder to place on cookie tops before baking.
equally among the muffin pans, each will approximately be filled to about
three-quarters full. The cookies don't rise much (nothing like muffins) so it's
okay if dough seems high in the cavities.
Sprinkle the remaining
1/2 cup chocolate chips on each cookie top.Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until tops have set and are pale golden. A
toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean or with a few moist
crumbs, but no batter. Watch your cookies and not the clock; bake until done.
Allow cookies to cool in pan for at least 15 minutes before removing them. Cookies will keep airtight at room temperature
for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
Take a peek...........
You must let these cool for about 15-20 minutes before trying to remove, or they'll simply crumble.
These cookies smelled absolutely divine, while baking, and I have to admit I tried one. They are Yummy!!!!
