fin city & peach chocolate chip cookies

Thanks for dropping by for this last remix! For my remix, I kept it casual and comfy because I wore this outfit on a lazy Sunday where my roomie and I bummed around in our apartment and ran a couple of errands together. Perfect weather for just a tshirt and shorts - plain and simple.

I had my roomie take pictures for me and I had to use this picture because we both couldn't stop laughing which reflects how much laughter we have between each other. Representing the San Jose Sharks, Go Sharks! :)

We've known each other for about 14 years now and share a lot of inside jokes and memories. Chicago has been an amazing adventure and having her here with me has made it less harder being away from family and friends. We can talk about anything and I'm going to miss her so much when she moves back to California. Trese, I love you! :)

The idea of chocolate and peaches paired together sounds delicious so as an experiment, I baked these peach chocolate chip cookies.

1 cup plus 3 tablespoon of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 peach, diced 
1/3 cup peach jam

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two baking pans with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, and salt together
3. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar with a mixer. Next, add the vanilla extract and egg and mix.
4. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients with the mixer. Next, stir in chocolate chips, peaches, and peach jam.
5. Drop about 1 tablespoon of cookie dough 2-3 inches apart on parchment paper and bake for 15-20 minutes or until firm and golden brown around the edges. 

I had my roomie and my friend, Grant, be my test dummies - "I normally wouldn't think to combine chocolate chips and fresh peaches in a cookie, but it actually works really well together. Fruit and chocolate is a very underrated pairing. It's almost like a southern style peach/chocolate chip bread pudding recipe but in a cookie form" (the nerdy/foody quote from Grant himself haha)

Thanks Trese and Grant for testing them out for me and thank you for reading our blog this month. For August, maxi and summer squash. :)
