Hobbling Gourmet Continues…

So don’t expect grand things from me in the next weeks to come, I’m sticking to the easy stuff for now. Last night I had to score keep hockey(have to pay those medical bills :|). Anyway, to encourage the refs to not call too many penalties(since I would have to hop up and open the penalty box door each time they do), I baked cookies. Peanut butter chips must of been on sale at Christmas, because I seem to have a never ending supply of them some how. So I chose to do something with those. I didn’t want to make them with chocolate(so that the dog could have a few…bad I know). Finding a recipe without chocolate was a little tricky and so I just decided to make my own….a pecan and peanut butter chip cookie. My hubby, myself, the refs and the dog all really enjoyed them. And in case you were wondering, my bribe did help :).


Pecan Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup powder sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup cake flour
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 12 ounce bag peanut butter chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans

1. Preheat the oven temperature to 375°F.
2. While the oven is heating, combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together for 3 minutes. Add one egg at a time and mix thoroughly. Make sure to scrape down the bowl between each egg.
3. Take your small bowl of dry ingredients and gradually mix it into the large mixing bowl. Fold in the peanut butter chips and nuts into the batter and mix.
4. Using a small ice cream scoop(or spoon) drop the dough onto your greased baking sheet.
5. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown. I do 9 minutes.
6. Allow to cool.




  1. These look great! How did they taste? And-non self rising cake flour I assume? Thanks!

  2. I would love to have several of these right now-they look delicious-take care!

  3. These sound incredibly good and wow if they taste half as good as they look, you’ve got a winner =)

  4. I remember what a joy it was when peanut butter chips first arrived on the scene! They are so fun in cookies.
    Yours look soooo good.
    How long did it take the teams to start taking advantage of the refs fewer penalities!!

  5. hahha, awwww the hobbling gormet is so cute :) these look delicious, love pbutter chips! i think i have to make these this weekend, YUM!

  6. Give me a glass of milk, these look so good! I also made cookies as well, and these will go on my to try list next, I also have a bag of chocolate peanut butter swirls I still haven’t decided what to do with, I think this might be the ticket, I won’t be giving to the dog so I will try with the chocolate!

  7. Yum! Even after you’re healed up, can we still have some “easy stuff” recipes? These look terrific!

  8. YUM!!!! My boss loves cookies and peanut butter anything is her favorite, so these may work as a bribe someday for me too. :)

    Glad to see you are up and around (sort-of) and hope you are all better soon.


  9. Oh I love your cookies, big and plump!

  10. These cookies look SO good! What kind of texture do they have…crispy, crunch, chewy? May have to pick up some peanut butter chips and try…MMMM!

  11. Simple is usually best :)

  12. I can see why those worked as a bribe. They look fantastic! Your pictures of them are incredible. Very nicely done!

  13. Damn! Even hobbled your baking incredible stuff! Can you do me a favour and bring some to the refs at the next Leafs game???

  14. I remember when I sprained my ankle last April…had to restort to the “Cooking by Proxy.” The cookies look yummy…well done…


  15. Hey you’re doing great hobbling around and making those delicious looking cookies! I’m sure they could bribe anyone :)

  16. Great strategy with the bribe. With peanut butter and pecans you can’t go wrong! Hope you are feeling better!

  17. These look so good. I’ve just been trolling around looking for a chocolate-chocolate cookie recipe, so I’ve really got cookies on the brain right now. These look great as is, but I was thinking they’d be awesome with butterscotch chips too. I’ve never once used butterscotch chips, mind you, but I crave random things sometimes. Maybe with a little peanut butter in place of some of the regular butter too…

  18. Peanut butter cookies are my favorite cookies on the planet. And with the added pecans, these must be to die for. Good luck to you and your ligament, by the way.

  19. I just made these tonight. They are really good…rare for me to like cookies with butter! I changed the nuts to almonds b/c today is Nat’l almond day, so I decided to celebrate! Mmmm! thanks!
