Peanut Butter Whirl Cookies

These cookies were suppose to be pinwheels. These cookies were suppose to have a nice swirl throughout. Well, these cookies aren't those pinwheel cookies. These cookies decided they wanted to be different. They didn't want to roll. They wanted to spread. Since these cookies taste great, we allowed them to do what they wanted. My husband told me these are his favorite cookies. Yes, favorite cookie. My daughter loved them!
Peanut Butter Swirl Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup peanut butter chips

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugar until fluffy.
  2. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla. Combine until incorporated.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. 
  4. Slowly, add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Combine until incorporated.
  5. Cover the dough and refrigerate for an hour. 
  6. Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface.
  7. In the microwave, melt the peanut butter chips. Stir until smooth.
  8. Allow the melted chips to cool slightly.
