You are right, he's already been in the office for more than 2 weeks now, but we were without a working oven. No oven = no cookies. I was on the verge of DTs and jonesin' for bakin', but sweet relief came last night. The oven is fixed and I can start to bake my way to happiness again.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Made 2 to 2 1/2 dozen cookies
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
12 oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Cream butter and sugars. Add peanut butter, egg, and vanilla. Blend well.
Stir in baking soda and baking powder. Add flour 1/2 cup at a time, in between blending well.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded spoonful onto an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for 9 or 10 minutes until edges are set, but centers are still a bit soft. Once you remove from the oven, let the cookies cool slightly for 4 or 5 minutes on the baking sheets so they can firm up a bit. Let them finish cooling on a wire rack.
