Longest post title, smallest cookies…
I wonder sometimes if my roommates actually like me. I was up at 8 yesterday morning, baking these cookies. Me hogging the kitchen is a common occurrence , forcing our kitchen ballet to the next level of extravagance. We’ve all gotten better at this dance- you know, the one where you side-step, sashay and promenade around each other to reach the pots, the refrigerator and the food cabinet(s) I conveniently barricade.
But there’s a slim chance they might like me. Waking up to chocolate chip cookies isn’t bad news and they can lick the mixing bowl or beaters and I try to leave them some of whatever I made. If I was your roommate, would you mind?
This morning, “I’m sorry for scraping pans and pounding ingredients three hours before your alarm and five+ hours before you had to be in class” will be in the form of little peanut butter chocolate chip cookies.
Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup peanut butter (I used crunchy, but smooth may actually work better)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
*(in retrospect, 1/2 tsp cinnamon would’ve been really good here!)
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix everything but chocolate chips with a fork. Incorporate sugars and make sure there aren’t any clumps.
Add chocolate chips and mix. Scoop by tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-11 minutes or until tops are a slight golden color.
Allow to cool for 3-4 minutes on the cookie sheet then carefully remove them to a cooling rack.
I ended up with about 30 small cookies. There are no pictures of the final product because I took them to work where they were devoured.
