At my grandparents’ house, meals were planned from the day before. That is, while we were having breakfast we were talking about what we would have lunch and dinner and, in many cases, what we would snack on during the day.

People outside the family think that all of us have a sweet tooth, that we only think about foo. Although they might be right, the truth is that we just prepare for what’s coming :p

When I start thinking what we’ll have for lunch tomorrow, I automatically think on dessert to close the meal.

This planning (or gluttony), allows me to make everything in a planned way and offer my family sweets, cookies, and wonderful dishes fresh from the oven. I mean, there’s no harm in that is there?! jejeje

If you’re more of a “let’s play it by ear” type of person, it’s OK, this recipe works for you too.

Let’s get cooking!

  • First, preheat oven to 180C
  • Then, soften the butter, leaving it outside the refrigerator for a while before starting (at least 1 hour). Mix peanut butter with butter in a bowl.
  • Add the sugar, baking powder, and flour to the preparation and mix everything. Also add the egg and egg yolk, stir.
  • Incorporate the necessary amount of vanilla extract into the preparation and add the chocolate sparks that blend well with the peanut butter.
  • Stir everything to achieve a dough as uniform as possible
  • With a spoon, remove portions of the mixture and place in an ovenproof dish covered with waxed paper.
  • Use another spoon to help you form the cookies in the baking dish. Make as many cookies as you can.
  • Bring to a preheated oven until browned, about 15 to 20 minutes
