Thank you DuClaw Brewing for sponsoring this post and sending me the DuClaw For Pete’s Sake Porter. All opinions and the cookie recipe are my own.
Welcome to the December edition of “Cooking with Beer”! Each month DuClaw Brewing sends me a beer and a friend and I create a recipe. It’s a fun time to think outside the box and try a new beer and new food. This month’s beer is “For Pete’s Sake”, an Imperial Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter. In other words, this an Imperial version of Sweet Baby Jesus.
We all know I love my Sweet Baby Jesus and this takes SBJ to a whole new level. In fact, given a choice, I would not have cooked with this. I love it too much. But I’m a good blogger and I’m going to share the love. If you like Sweet Baby Jesus, you are going to want to try this beer and these cookies. I know Santa might leave my house a little chubbier and a bit less sober. Just sayin’
I hate to be predictable, but a peanut butter chocolate beer just screams “Cookies!!!” But when I mentioned it to my friend, he was all “yeah, peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips.” I was all “no, chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips.” (Remember the old ad? “You got chocolate in my peanut butter. No, you got peanut butter in my chocolate.”) So a challenge was thrown down – we’d each make a batch of cookies and we’d have friends vote at his Christmas party.
I won. But to be honest, both cookies were great. Mine taste more like the beer and his taste more like peanuts.
