It seems I am good for reading blogs at night, but not writing them - not in this season anyway.
With a cup of Mocha in the morning hours I think of all manner of witty, wonderful, inspiring things to say, but I am (being a wise and) dedicating that coffee jolt to listening to the Bible and painting.
I also have lots to say when the house is coming down around my ears at the lunch hour.
THAT, however, is not a wise time to sit down either.
Oh WAIT! I have it.
The Worlds Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookie recipe! I actually made these tonight (instead of blogging intelligent things) and this recipe has been turning out a prettier shape than any of my usual chocolate chip recipes.
It is now a favorite stand-by, and in Idaho, in my Wolf oven/range I can fit over 2 d.o.z.e.n cookies on one sheet. Wheeeew-ee! The size of that oven almost makes up for the lack in living square-footage:-)
Okie-dokie, want the recipe?
Here it is:
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 and 1/3 cup flour (and here I add a little more. Enough to shape dough into balls)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
chocolate chips (the more the merrier!) I use about a cup and a half, and add another half cup mini chocolate chips just for fun:-)
Combine butter and peanut butter.
then eggs and vanilla.
Stir in flour, salt, baking soda, and chocolate chips.
Add more flour as needed.
Bake at 350 for 9-12 minutes.
And that's it! In Idaho I actually experimented with dehydrated egg and no one was the wiser.
Boy it was a relief to know I could make these cookies from nothing but pantry items. I may have used dehydrated butter too... can't remember.
And so. You get nothing witty tonight, but perhaps "tasty" will suffice!
I do what I can:-)
