Friday was a bit of a craptastic day, thanks to getting yelled at and state testing and a bunch of other yucky stuff. When I got home early on Friday, I’d originally planned on taking a nap before my evening. I laid down on the couch and in line with the day, I couldn’t fall asleep to save my life. A recipe I’d seen on the lovely food blog, Joy The Baker popped into my mind and I decided to bake Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies.
These cookies are EASY—just four ingredients, and also the most delicious peanut butter cookies I’ve ever consumed. Seriously. They don’t make the biggest batch ever so we definitely made two batches. In three days. Don’t judge me. First, I live with a boy. Secondly, YOU HAVEN’T TRIED THEM.
Here are the steps:
Put on the adorable, pink-checkered apron with Paris and the Eiffel tower and black bows on it, that your equally adorable friend gave you for your birthday—thanks, Britt! This step is not essential, however, it adds to the cuteness factor of the experience.
No, I did not just put this on my stove—it’s just in a clear glass bowl. I never, ever promised good photography, remember? Anyways, combine 1 cup of peanut butter with 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. Blend together with a hand mixer for about 2 minutes. BE CAREFUL—this is a messy combo!
Add an egg and one teaspoon of baking powder. Mix again with hand mixer.
Form dough into walnut size balls, and then make cross marks with fork.
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes on a greased cookie sheet.
Try your hardest to let them cool for a few minutes. Seriously, good luck on that.
Then, consume, and expect that your day, no matter how good OR craptastic, will improve dramatically.
