Let’s Make Some Cookies!

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love to bake. For the longest time I wanted to go to school to be a pasty chef. I wanted to own my own bakery and coffee shop and spend my days making delicious cookies and crazy flavored cupcakes. I once even started to gather up some recipes I was making.

I love making these flourless peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies. They are simple and easy to make, using only 6 ingredients.

creamy peanut butter (not natural)
granulated sugar
packed light-brown sugar
one egg
baking soda
semi sweet or milk chocolate chips

So, what does one need to make said cookies? For starters, a bowl and measuring cups.

Now is a good time to pre-heat your oven to 350ºF (or about 180ºC for the rest of the world).

Put the ingredients in bowl and mix with a spoon or spatula. It’s that easy. Dump and mix. And it doesn’t take long. Once you have everything thoroughly blended, use a spoon to scoop the batter and roll it to form a ball. Place the dough on a baking sheet lined with wax or parchment paper.

Pop the sheet in the oven for about 15 minutes and relax. Watch some TV. Drink some tea. Pour a glass of milk in preparation of some serious cooking eating.

Let them sit for a few minutes before moving them to a cooling rack. Once cooled a bit, it is now time to grab that glass of milk and begin the cooked eating. They won’t last long, trust me.
