52 cookies :: week 49 :: cookie sticks



Cookie Sticks
via My Baking Addiction

1/2 c canola oil (I used olive oil)
1/4 c creamy peanut butter
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/2 c packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1-1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c peanut butter chips
1 c semisweet chocolate chips (I forwent the peanut butter chips and did 1 c chocolate chips total)

Preheat oven to 375° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the oil, peanut butter, sugars, egg and vanilla. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the sugar mixture and mix until well combined. Fold in the peanut butter chips and divide dough in half.

On the prepared baking sheet, shape each portion into a 15" x 3" rectangle about 3" apart. Sprinkle with chocolate chips; pressing them lightly into the dough.

Bake in preheated oven for 6-7 minutes. (Bake for 8-9 minutes for crispier cookies.) Cool for about 10 minutes. Cut with a serrated knife into 1-in. strips; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

*I rolled them out to more like 15" x 5". didn't sprinkle them with extra chips, and after baking for 7 minutes removed them from the oven - sliced them - then returned them to the oven for another 5 minutes

K: Love the length of these cookies! They are so awesome. The taste of the peanut butter & chocolate makes it awesome. They are amazing. It is probably on my top 10. And they are awesome with milk!!!!!!

E: Peanut butter chocolate chocolate sticks of delight. With a glass of milk they are the perfect snack for after school while working on your homework. They are the power boost you need to do homework. Yummy!

D: this cookie has been a good friend. this morning i took one (three) to work with me. munched them, chewy and comforting with a cup of coffee. everyone else was grumpy, while i was showing off, all crumbly on my face, my beard. I get home today, and my friend "cookie stick" is waiting for me with a bourbon. It balances perfectly across a glass so I can negotiate the hazards of home. ya know that 95% of all accidents happen in the home. Cookie stick doesn't get in the way and is yummy. hits the spot. Tonight, i see my old friend acting like a biscotti, nestled up on a large glass of cabernet. You cannot hide from me! Good-bye cookie stick.

I love your family's comments on this one! :) What a cute way to make a cookie too! Definitely easier to dip in a glass of milk!
