Harvey Dents

I make Batman-themed baked goods.

I don’t know why.

These are Harvey Dents:

Peanut butter panic!

They are half peanut-butter with chocolate chips, and half chocolate with peanut-butter chips, and all TOTALLY INSANE-O.

(Note that the chocolate cookie recipe rises a little higher than the peanut butter recipe, leaving the cookies nice and disfigured)

My recipe: let me show you it.

Attack of the chocolate and shallow focus!

If your oven is normal, preheat it to 350 F. Mine is not normal so I set the dial to 300 F.

Generally cookie-batter mixing means creaming the sugar and wet ingredients first, and then mixing in the rest of the ingredients until the batter begs for mercy. These mixes are no exception:

CHOCOLATE SIDE

A)
1 C butter, softened (AKA 2 sticks, or 1/2 lb.; softened
3/4 C sugar
2/3 C brown sugar, packed
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs

B)
2 1/4 C all-purpose flour
2/3 C cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

C)
Peanut butter chips

Cream (A) in one bowl
Combine (B) in another
Add (B) to (A) gradually.
Add as much of (C) as you like.

Batter will be sticky. You may wish to refrigerate it while you make the peanut butter side.

PEANUT BUTTER SIDE

A)
1 C butter, softened (AKA 2 sticks, or 1/2 lb.; softened
1 C brown sugar, packed
1 C sugar
1 1/2 C creamy peanut butter
2 eggs

B)
2 1/2 C all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

C)
Semi-sweet chocolate chips

– Mix (A)
– Add (B)
– Mix in as much of (C) as you like

Set batter aside. The peanut butter is so oily that it will be easy to work with even without refrigerating.

You will probably have more peanut butter batter than chocolate batter. That is OK.

Then just EAT IT. Oh wait no.

Take about a tablespoon of each kind of batter and roll together into a ball. Place on cookie sheet with room to double in diameter.

Bake at 350 F for 8 – 10 min depending on how crispy you want them (I like them chewy, and thus pull them out of the oven right when they’re juuuuust firm around the edges.)

To decide which side to eat first, FLIP A COIN.

Let cool thoroughly and then FATTEN UP YOUR FRIENDS.
