We celebrated my mom's birthday on Sunday with lasagna and chocolate cake with white frosting and sprinkles ;)
My dad made the cake and dished it out to us, and subconsciously he created this:
We have named it "The Tetris cake" hahahahaha
It's the little things in life my friends ;)
So I've really felt like I needed to bake something. I've been feeling the need for awhile, but haven't been able to just do it.
Too tired or whatever ya know??
Well Saturday night, while Andrew was at work, I made my famous peanut butter chocolate chip cookies ;) Ah 'twas bliss!
The delicious dough ;) I'll admit that I eat a TON of the dough.... it's just so yummy I can't help it!
And my totally amazing Mickey spatula! (Thank you mama!!) And there they are! All cooled off and waiting for me to consume! Anyone want the recipe?
Here ya go:
(This is from a Betty Corcker cookbook but I customized it)
1 1/4 c. flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. buter or margerine
1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 375*
Mix the "wet" ingredients in one bowl: sugars,
peanut butter, vanilla, butter, and egg.
And "dry" ingredients in another bowl.
After mixing the wet add in the dry
and beat til fluffy.
Add as much chocolate chips as desired.
(I add a ton cuz I love chocolate hahaha)
Then roll into balls on an ungreased cookie sheet.
(I still grease mine just cuz I hate things sticking
to my sheets and getting all nasty)
The book says to cook for 10 minutes,
and if you like them more crunchy and done then go for it.
(I do mine for 8 minutes cuz I like them squishy)
Something to look forward to: Mint Chocolate bark! I'm super excited to try it once I get the ingredients!! ;)
