peanut butter cookies
We got a little hungry for cookies today.
My cupboards are running a bit bare, but I refuse to go to the store. The last time I went grocery shopping, I came home with ring bologna -- because the meat section made me want to throw up. What was I thinking?! RING BOLOGNA. What do you make with that? I digress. I'm waiting for a nice stomach-settled evening to restock...so no other unusual items find their way into my home.
So back to the cookies. We were playing a game called Cookin' Cookies, and I just got hungrier and hungrier for cookies. Any kind of cookies. Then I remembered this awesome recipe for peanut butter cookies I had gotten a few summers ago from a friend. (Hi, Kathy!) It requires just 3 ingredients...all nearly always in my cupboards.
My son helped form little balls and then press them with a fork. Some were squished REALLY well.
Here's the recipe:
1 cup peanut butter (creamy, crunchy, organic, processed, whatever)
1 cup sugar
Mix together. Roll into balls. Press with a fork. Bake at 350 for 7 minutes. Cool. Eat. Several.
(Best dipped into a glass of milk.)
((I like to chase them down with lasagna.))
