Seductress of Sweets is back!

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!

And so it begins ;)

The delicious dough ;)
I'll admit that I eat a TON of the dough....
it's just so yummy I can't help it!
Now I do actually own this timer
but I forgot to take a picture of mine
and it's a pain to re-upload things hahahahaha
BTW this timer is awesome!

And my totally amazing Mickey spatula!
(Thank you mama!!)

Don't they look yummy???
Excuse me as I salivate a bit here.....

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 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
chocolate chips

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!! ;)
