Chocolate Chip Pan Cookie Recipe : Spring Peeps Bunny Cookie

Peeps are so cute that I tend to enjoy them even after Easter.  I bought an adorable Peeps bunny cookie pan from Candyland Crafts in Somerville (if  you live in Jersey, you must go visit them!) but then I got sick right around Easter time and I never had the chance to use it.  Never one to let a good, adorable cookie pan go to waste, I made a Spring bunny cookie for myself The Jersey Momma's Boy after the holiday.

You Will Need:

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1.  Spray your pan well with cooking spray.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.  In a large bowl, combine butter and sugars.  Beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.

3.  Add egg and vanilla, mix well.  Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. The dough will be really dry- just keep mixing carefully until it forms a soft dough.

4.  Stir in chocolate chips.

5.  Pat dough into your pan (you can grease your hands with cooking spray or oil if needed). Press almost to edges.

6.  Bake 15-20 minutes or until light golden brown.

7.  Cool on rack for five minutes, then gently flip cookie upside down to remove from pan. You can place a cooling rack on top of the cookie before you flip the pan over so that the rack catches it easily. Then transfer to a plate.

Let cool completely. You can decorate the cookie with decorator frosting, or M&M's if the cookie is still warm. Serve with ice cream, if desired!

We opted to put the eyes and nose on the flat side of the cookie, but you might choose to flip it over and decorate the "bumpy" side, too.

This cookie comes out tasting a lot like a blondie (meaning it's a little more cake-like with a soft texture, with the flavor of a blondie). It has a nice flavor and is not overly sweet or chocolatey. This recipe should work with most cookie pans.
