Decadent peanut butter and dark choc chip cookies

It is a cold day in Townsville (yes 17 degrees is very cold when you don't have heating) so any excuse to run the oven or the clothes dryer.

I read several recipes for cookies and came up with this which worked wonderfully well
These are a more adult cookie but if you substituted milk chocolate for the dark the kids would probably love them too

Preheat oven to 170 degrees fan forced

Grind 220g raw sugar for 4 seconds at speed 9
Add 60g peanut butter (I used bought but you can always make your own)
120g unsalted butter cut into chunks

Blend 1 minute speed 3

Add  1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 egg

Blend 7 seconds speed 4

Weigh 310g SR four into a separate bowl

Add 130g dark chocolate chips (use Cadbury not Nestle for information about the Nestle boycott click here)

Mix on reverse speed 3 for 45 seconds adding the flour through the hole in the lid

Place teaspoons on CT silicon sheet on baking tray - they double in size so leave some space but not too much

Flatten with a fork, your knuckles or I used a CT muffin pan for a neat, flat top

Cook for 10 minutes and allow to cool on racks

This recipe makes approx 40 cookies and they are worth 3 Weight Watchers ProPoints each. But if you have two it's only 5 ProPoints!
