What's Cooking Wednesday

Shan made me blush a bit this morning when I read her What's Cooking Wednesday post. I fully agree with her of course that blogging has enriched my life in many ways. The most surprising and important to me is through the friends I've made. I do hope to meet more of them in the future "in real life" and Shan, my bloggy BFF, is at the top of my "to meet" list. Expect me to step up the pressure, sister!

After her post, I couldn't miss participating in WCW this week. I made these cookies this week - not school-lunch friendly but great for at home if you have no nut allergies. These are also great if you have a problem with wheat.

Super easy peanut butter cookies

1cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Mis all ingredients well. Form into 1 tbsp balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Press with fork. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

Recipe notes: these were really delicious and very easy. However the dough is really gooey. I couldn't really roll it in my hands so I just used my fingertips to get it spherical. Also, do not overbake these. They taste charred if even slightly overbaked. I learned that the hard way.

I think I may whip up another batch of these today!

This is my go-to cookie recipe for my wheat/dairy allergic three year old (minus the chocolate chips. I've also added all sorts of dried fruit, nuts and seeds. It's was a bit like eating one of those peanut butter/bird seed crafts that kids make to hang in trees, but still really good.

Mmm I love peanut butter cookies, but I don't often make them because the Abby can't take them in her lunch. I do make them more in the summer because our sitter allows peanut butter.

Let's hook up soon my friend!

I will definitely have to try these. I tried a recipe with flour recently and it just didn't do it for me. I'm still searching for my "go to" recipe. You never know...this may be the one! :)
