Recipe by AngiC
I found this recipe in the back of my junk drawer, obviously cut out from a magazine, and I thought the cookies tasted great. It was perfect for me because I try to avoid wheat / gluten. I'm posting the recipe as printed, and it was yummy, but I think next time I will reduce the sugar by at least 1/4 of a cup (maybe more) and add a tsp of vanilla. Added note: I suspect the negative reviewer made these too big. They are very soft for quite a while after coming out of the oven, and I imagine they would never be easy to eat if you made them bigger than they are supposed to be. I use slightly rounded teaspoonfulls of cookie dough and get 2 dozen. Once they cool, they are only a little softer than any normal cookie and are easy to eat. Good luck!
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter (brand name, like Jif or Skippy, yep, trans-fatty goodness)
- 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Combine all ingredients except chips until well blended (seriously, my cookies still had some sugar graininess).
- Add chips.
- Drop slightly rounded teaspoonfulls on ungreased cookie sheets (12 to a sheet) - do not flatten.
- Bake 9 minutes or until puffed and golden. Cool on wire rack for at least 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheet (they will be very soft).
