Though we bake all around a year, December is when we do most of the baking. With Christmas around the corner, it is so lovely to bake non stop. I have been baking non stop last week and Sruti felt like Diwali has returned with so many sweets piling up in the kitchen. She is so happy that I chose to participate in Bake-a-thon, where we fellow bloggers come together to bake 13 recipes in December. At first my list was mostly for Sruti, but looking at the amount of maida going into it, I revised the list. So only a part of these recipes are for Sruti and I made most of them for myself. I know I am being selfish, but I didn’t want to feed her too much refined products. But still she got some amazing treats and she is happy.

All Purpose Flour / Maida – 200 gm
Baking Powder – 1/2 tsp
Salt – a pinch
Peanut Butter – 50 gm
Ghee – 50 gm
Brown Sugar – 150 gm

In a bowl mix together peanut butter, ghee and sugar.
Whisk until all the ingredients are combined.
Add milk and vanilla and mix well.
Mix together flour, baking powder and salt to the peanut butter sugar mixture and form soft dough.
Finally add in the choco chips and mix well.
Pinch lemon sized balls out of the dough and place on the baking tray.
With the help of a flat bowl or glass, press the ball to flatten it. You can also shape it as a thick cookie and arrange on the tray.

With the help of a spatula, gently remove the cookies from the tray and cool on wire rack.
