Once again, I have another recipe from my mom…and this time it’s cookies. I have a few cousins who are gluten intolerant, so my mom made these cookies for them. However, everyone in the family fell in love with them. Last week we had a potluck at work and I conned (actually, I asked nicely) my mom into making a batch, because while I like to take homemade stuff to potlucks, I don’t always have the time to make something. So my mommy came to my rescue, and everyone at work fell in love with the cookies. I had numerous requests for the recipe, so I figured it would be a perfect choice for Weekend Cooking.
Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips
1 C Super Chunky Peanut Butter (note from softdrink’s mom: I like Skippy) (note from softdrink: Choosy moms choose Skippy)
3/4 C Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1 C Mini Chocolate Chips
350 degree oven. Mix together everything but the Chocolate Chips in a bowl & mix well. Add in the Chips & mix. Roll in walnut size balls & place on cookie sheet. You may want to wet your hands as the dough is sticky. Bake for 12 min. Let cool for 5 min. on cookie sheet & remove to rack.
Easy-peasy. Or so I hear. They’re definitely easy to eat! Consensus at work is that they’re the best peanut butter cookie ever.
I also like how my mom capitalizes all of the ingredients in her recipes. Kind of like those old Novels where Nouns are always capitalized.
