Marbled Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cookies

After the first batch of peanut butter cookies disappeared so quickly, I came up with something even better for the second batch...which involved a separate batch of chocolate cookies.  Two cookies in one!  While I'm sure it has been done before, I was touting myself a genius for the night.
 Chewy Chocolate Cookie Recipe:  
3/4 c butter
1 1/2 c dark brown sugar
2 c chocolate chips
2 T water
2 eggs
1 1/4 t baking soda
2 1/2 c flour or 3 c flour (at high altitude)
350F for 8 minutes ONLY
Melt butter, brown sugar, chocolate chips and water in a sauce pan.  Cool for 10 min.  Add eggs, baking soda, flour and combine.  Chill dough one hour.  Roll into walnut sized balls.  Bake 350F for 8 minutes.

Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe:
1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder
splash of vanilla extract
1/2 c flour or 3 c flour (at high altitude)
 1 cup M&Ms.
Cream the shortening, sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter and eggs.  Add the baking soda and powder and then a splash of vanilla extract.  Add the flour.  Stir in the M&Ms by hand (the mixer tends to chip the M&Ms).  Bake 350F 8-10 minutes.  Yields approximately 3 dozen cookies (using 1.5" balls of dough).
Now grab a pinch or two of the chocolate cookie dough and a pinch or two of the peanut butter cookie dough and roll together:
Here is a mix of chocolate cookies, peanut butter cookie and chocolate & peanut butter cookies out of the oven:
 Pretty marbled chocolate and peanut butter cookies:
 I'm going to give it a rest after this batch.
I can only exercise so many hours of the day and these cookies are working against me.  Enjoy!
