Picture for Sumbitches and Peanut Butter Cookies inspired by How I Met Your Mother

5,944,834 views  Sumbitches are the wildly-offensively-named cookie that, in a very real way, are how I met your mother. Beyond that, they are the carnal cookie combo of chocolate, peanut butter, and caramel - which offers some technical challenges that can be surmounted with a little know-how, elbow grease, and a copy of Milk Bar by Christina Tosi.

2.

Whisk flour, baking soda, and kosher salt. Set aside for later.

8 ½ ounces Flour

1 teaspoon Baking Soda

1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

3.

In a separate bowl, place unsalted butter (room temperature), granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Using a stand mixer, mix the ingredients together and add vanilla extract.

2 sticks Unsalted Butter (room temperature)

¾ cup Granulated Sugar

¾ cup Brown Sugar

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

4.

After about one minute or after all of the ingredients are mixed together, add large eggs to the mixture.

5.

Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix for about 1-2 minutes or until the mixture is a creamy texture.

6.

Scrape down the sides of the bowl one last time and then add the dry ingredients to the mixture. Mix for no more than 30-45 seconds. Be sure not to over mix unless you want tough cookies.

7.

Add your chopped up caramel squares, chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips to the mixture. Make sure to scrape the cookie dough out of the paddle attachment.

8.

Use a tiny ice cream scoop or melon baller to scoop out uniform little nubbins (1 Tablespoon worth) of the cookie dough and space out the scoops evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet.

9.

Place into a 375°F oven for 10-12 minutes.

10.

After taking the cookies out of the oven, make sure not to try and scrape the cookies off the parchment paper until they are cooled completely as the molten caramel will make the cookies stick to the paper like glue.

11.

Serve and enjoy!

12.

FOR THE Tosi-Inspired Peanut Butter Cookie

1.

Combine bread flour, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt. Whisk dry ingredients together and set aside.

225 grams Bread Flour

2 grams Baking Powder

1 gram Baking Soda

9 grams Kosher Salt

2.

Place unsalted butter (room temperature), granulated sugar, and glucose syrup. If you are unable to access glucose syrup, you can use light corn syrup, but it will not have the same consistency in the end.

300 grams Granulated Sugar

1 ½ sticks Unsalted Butter (room temperature)

50 grams Glucose

3.

Beat this mixture together with a stand-up mixer on medium-high speed for 2-3 minutes or until the texture is light and fluffy.

4.

Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add creamy peanut butter and beat on medium-high speed for 30 seconds or until combined.

260 grams Creamy Peanut Butter

5.

With the mixer running on slow, add large eggs one at a time until being combined for about 30 seconds.

2 large Eggs

6.

Add vanilla extract before beating on high-speed for 3 minutes until the mixture is light, creamy, and doubled in volume.

0.5 gram Vanilla Extract

7.

Add your pre-combined dry ingredients after scraping down the bowl one more time. Mix minimally on low-speed for about 30 seconds.

8.

Caramelize some granulated sugar over medium-low heat until amber in color. Pour it on parchment paper and allow to cool completely before peeling away from the parchment and smashing into tiny bits. None of the bits should be larger than a grain of rice. Dump into the cookie dough mixture.

9.

Chop up about high quality dark chocolate and add to the mixture. Slowly and gently mix together to evenly incorporate the mix-ins.

5 ounces High Quality Dark Chocolate or Chocolate Chips

10.

Use a tiny ice cream scoop or melon baller to scoop out uniform little nubbins (2-3 tablespoons worth) of the cookie dough. Space out your scoops evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet.

11.

Pat down the tops of the scoops a little bit to make the scoops into evenly proportioned chubby little disks.

12.

Stack and wrap the cookie dough in plastic wrap and let sit in the fridge for as little as three hours and as much as three days. The longer you let the cookie dough sit, the better it is going to look and taste.

13.

Once finished chilling, unwrap and place in a 375°F oven for 15-18 minutes until they are golden brown and crisp.
