The Doughball & Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

What is a Doughball? Well, it’s the most delicious kind of event where businesses from all over the city make baked goods, put them in the one place and people come and get to eat it all up, all the while drinking wine and coffee. Sounds amazing right?

Well let me tell you, The Coast throws one hell of an eating frenzy.


This past Saturday, there were all kinds of baked goods and treats over-flowing tables at the Dalhousie University Club.

Local Source rocked it out with giant donut cakes and mini donut deliciouness, while other places like Two if By Sea served up mini apple croissants, and Benjamin Bridge poured glasses of Nova7.


Halifax Food Bloggers had a table, and holy crap did our goodies go fast! From Dulce de Leche bars to mini cupcakes, they gobbled down every single bite we made for the day.


Kathy from eathalifax made Toasted Lemon Meringue Bars.


Kelly of made Dulce de Leche Bars.


Sarah from Sarah Smells the Roses sent over TWO kinds of truffles to be devoured, and Holly whipped up some amazing homemade caramels; you can check out her awesomeness at ediblelegible.


Gateaux Rose made Mini Chocolate Espresso Cupcakes.


And I made Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.


A lot of people had lovely things to say about my cookies and were shocked when I told them I didn’t have the recipe on my blog!

So folks, here it is:

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 24 regular sized cookies, or around 50 if you make them tiny like I did for Doughball


1/2 cup room temperature salted butter

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1/2 cup of white sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup of crunchy peanut butter (trust me, use crunchy not smooth)

1.5 cups of flour

1 teaspoon of baking soda

Pinch of salt

1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350

2. Beat butter and both sugars in a mixing bowl until they are nice and fluffy. (I usually use the paddle beater for this recipe, if you have one.)

3. Add eggs and vanilla, and keep on beatin’

4. Stir in peanut butter

5. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and salt

6. Combine both bowls

7. Add chocolate chips and stir

8. Spoon teaspoon size blobs onto cookie sheets for mini cookies, or tablespoon size for regular size cookies

9. Bake for 10-12 minutes
