My Favorite of the Cookies

So if you're ever flipping through the Betty Crocker cookbook (what, you don't do this?), you might notice some little paragraphs at the end of the recipes that just look like additional notes.  You might think, extra reading, why would I do that?  That would be a major mistake, because those little paragraphs include tidbits on how to make the recipes way better.  Like, for example, the peanut butter cookies.  The regular cookies are good, but add peanut butter chips and twinge the other ingredients, and they get amazing.

And these cookies are amazing, but what really wins me over is that they only use one bowl and take about ten minutes to make.  Win win win.

Peanut Butter Chip Cookies (from Betty Crocker)

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 large egg
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Additional granulated sugar
1 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix sugar, peanut butter, butter, and egg.  Stir in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Stir in peanut butter chips.

Shape dough into balls and roll in granulated sugar.  Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes, let cool.  And then tell your significant other/roommate that you made cookies and accept all of the praise.

  8. Oh yes when I do plain peanut butter I always do the fork marks. Doesn't work with these because of the chips.
