Lately, we've been making lots of cookies or should I say, cookie dough because not many of them have actually made it into the oven. We bake a tray or two, then we put the rest on a cookie sheet and pop them into the freezer to bake or snack on later.
I think it would be fun to make several different kinds and divide them up to deliver to friends.
PS- If you need a good cookie recipe, this is one of my simple favorites. I wish I could give credit where credit is due, but I got it off of a package of chocolate chips at least 12 years ago, and I have no idea what kind of chocolate chips they were. Sorry!
Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup (2 sticks) butter softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar (I just use whatever brown sugar I have)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups chocolate chips (my friend Marta does half chocolate, half white chocolate)
Bake at 375 degrees for 8 - 10 minutes. Makes 5 dozen cookies.
PPS- If you love cookie dough like I do, you might like this tip, my friend Melinda uses pasteurized eggs when she makes cookie dough so she can keep it in the fridge and she doesn't have to worry about any of her little ones sampling it. Brilliant, right? Why didn't I think of that on my own?
