Easy Recipe: Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate

Yesterday, I didn't feel up to making anything extraordinary.  Mainly because I didn't want to wash dishes.  But, these cookies turned out to be rather delicious.

(adapted from Emeril for Martha Stewart)

You'll Need: (makes about 20)
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1.5 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon flour
- cookie sheets
- wooden spoon
- Large bowl


Preheat oven to 350 (F).  Measure out your sugars into a large bowl.


Measure out the peanut butter and add that to the same bowl.


Beat up the egg and add it to the bowl. (I did it in the peanut butter measuring cup.  Fewer dishes.)


Add vanilla.


Add chocolate.  I cut some of mine up, they were too big.  ( You don't have to use 2 types of chocolate.)


Start mixing it up with that wooden spoon.


Add the tablespoon of flour, and mix until smooth.


By hand, roll dough into about 20 balls.  You can make as many or as few as you want.  Space them evenly on a cookie sheet.


Squish the dough down both ways with a fork.


Put them in the oven for 10-14 minutes, until edges appear set.

I bumped this one.  Darn! Now I have to eat it.

Let cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet, then remove and let cool on wire racks.  Enjoy!

Fact of the Matter:  I didn't eat breakfast until 10 today...
