Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (and a CONTEST!)

It’s Friday, and I have another tried and true recipe for you. I have decided that I have so many peanut butter recipes pinned on my Pinterest account that I finally just gave in and started a peanut butter board. Apparently I like peanut butter in things.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip CookiesPeanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
3 Tbl. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream together the peanut butter, butter, and both sugars. Beat in the milk, egg and vanilla until fluffy.

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl and then add into the peanut butter mixture.

Roll into tablespoon-sized balls. Place 2″ apart on cookie sheets and press down with a fork.

Bake 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees. Enjoy!

unnamed-7This recipe got me to thinking about peanut butter and chocolate colored yarn, which resulted in a walk around The Loopy and a peanut buttered Loopy photo. We have a LOT of beautiful yarn here in the shop. I try not to take too many walk-abouts because I always come back to my office with an armful of yarn that I need to buy. SO.MUCH.BEAUTIFUL.YARN.HERE.

So here’s the contest question – which skein of beautiful yarn would you like to win from The Loopy Ewe? Leave your answer in the comments and I’ll do a random drawing next week and we will send it to you! (Well, we’ll send it to you if we draw your name. You know how contests work!)

  1. What a great competition :0)
    I would love to win any of your yarns at all, I love so many but the Worthy in Help us Rhonda as I just love the song and the colour :0)

  2. The Blue Moon Fiber Arts Worthy sounds super. Who could resist cashmere and silk? As a spinner, I could also go for the Polwarth and silk roving.
    The peanut butter and chocolate chip recipe is also very enticing. Here in Madison, a small company makes a chocolate peanut butter – it makes wonderful peanut butter cookies.
    Thanks for the yarn contest.

  3. Ooooh maybe Wollmeise Blend in Ein Klein Wenig Verrucht – because I’ve tried the other WM bases, and who can resist a colourway with that name. 😉 (And then I noticed that “everyone” picks Blue Moon Worthy, and I can totally understand why – it looks gorgeous. I’m changing my mind, I’ll pick Worthy in the Smoke on the Water colourway. So pretty!)

  4. Nothing better than peanut butter.Just give me a jar and spoon.Shalimar breathless bungalow,or worthy in vancouver violet would be amazing.

  5. I firmly believe peanut butter to be its own food group.

    Love Shalimar Breathless in Sno Pea or Fable Fibers Novel in Lucky Penny.

    Thanks for the contest!

  6. Wonderland Yarns, Cabbages and Kings, Love the green and I can picture it made into a beautiful shawl for a dear friend.
    Also, Sweet Georgia, Rosebud.
    Dream in Color Smooshy, love the Dusky Aurora.

  7. I believe I’d like to try the Shalimar breathless lace. I don’t ever get around to buying much lace weight and when I do it just sits there and is never used but I think Shalimar Breathless is lovely, probably in any weight. thanks for the giveaway opp. have a nice weekend ! Mel

  8. I would love a skein of BMFA Worthy in HRH Crown Princess of Purple. I haven’t tried that base yet and it sounds y.u.m.m.y – plus, I love the name of that color way….especially since my husband has been known to call me Queenie a time or two. I don’t know why though…

  9. I just made peanut cookies last week. I put them in a mini muffin pan and as soon as them come out of the oven, I put a mini peanut butter cup on top and press it down. If I’m lucky enough to win I’d pick Blue Moon Fiber Arts, Worthy – Fingering H.R.H. Crown Princess of Purple Violetta.

  10. I love peanut butter cookies! The yarn I would like to win is Ancient Arts Fibre Crafts Heavy Fingering Yarn in Nectarine.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  11. Lorna’s Laces Sole Mate in Black Purl!!!
    I’ve adored that colorway for YEARS and I would love to make a pair of socks for ME for my first winter here in Fort Collins!

    Hope to visit you soon!

  12. I have to narrow it down to one skein? This is extremely difficult! But I would love a skein of BMFA Worthy in Orchid Queen.

  13. Have you tried the new Snickers Peanut Butter Squared?
    My skein choice would be Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted Christmas at Downton.

  14. So many great possibilities.

    I’d want a skein of Worthy. My absolute favorite. I scored 2 just today. Love it!

  15. I love the three irish girls cashmerino fingering, chocolate cherry…..
    cashmere, chocolate, cherry, what’s not to love?

  16. Oh the Pure is lovely but my favorite of all the colors is Madtosh Tart. Now that is my favorite red. Glorious!

  17. My usual Loopy routine has been disrupted lately and I almost missed this contest.

    Blue Moon Fiber Arts Worthy in Mermaid Tears is speaking to me…

  18. Meadowcroft Dyeworks, Rockshelter Sock, Bequeathed Treasure would look great as s lacey scarf with a rust colored suede jacket I am excited to wear this fall.
