How to make Peanut Butter Cookies
This recipe only calls for 5 ingredients, and can be finished in approximately 15 minutes. Even the most kitchen-deficient bachelor can handle this one. If you can count, and can push a button, you’ve got it in the bag. This recipe makes about 2 dozen or so.
Things You’ll Need:
- 1 cup of Peanut Butter
- 1 cup of Brown Sugar
- 1 egg (yes, you have to crack an egg)
- 1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
- 1/2 cup of Chocolate Chips
- A cookie Sheet
- A spoon
- Electric Mixer
- An oven
Turn your oven on to 350. It will need to preheat a little and it can do so while your mixing your ingredients.
Find a large mixing bowl, pan, whatever. You’re a bachelor, grab a hollowed out rock you’ve created simply because you’re manly. Anything will do as long as it can hold all the ingredients.
Mix everything together EXCEPT the Chocolate Chips. Mix it all together by hand or with an electric Mixer. I would highly suggest the electric mixer.
After about 3 seconds of mixing, you’re going to think, This is too thick. It’s not.
After 6 seconds, you’re going to think, I can’t mix this. You can.
After reassuring yourself with the above instructions, you’re going to think, This is going to break my Mixer. It won’t.
When it is mixed, it will be very clumpy. Relax, it’s supposed to be. Now add those Chocolate Chips. Add however many you think your lady will enjoy. Remember, this is about wooing her, not getting your chocolate fix. However, I would suggest no more than 2/3 of a cup.
Using a spoon, scoop up some of the batter and mash it into a ball. Use your hands for the mashing, just wash them first because she WILL ask. You’re a barbarian, but you’re a clean one.
Place the balls onto a cookie sheet maybe 2 inches apart. Smash the balls with a fork to create little tracks. Women think these are cute. Put the sheet into the oven and cook for 9 minutes. If you cook them for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, that’s okay. If you overcook them for 9 minutes and 30 seconds, that’s okay too, don’t panic. Just don’t cook them for 12 minutes, they turn black and crunchy. She will not be impressed.
When finished, these cookies will be very soft. You will have trouble removing them from the sheet. Let them cool for a couple minutes, then scoop them off using something flat and steel. No, not your ax, I was thinking something more along the lines of a spatula or large knife.
Now sit back, put on some Luther Vandross, pick up your phone, and invite all those lovely ladies you are trying to win over for a glorious evening of wine, dancing…and cookies. But go ahead and leave your ax hanging on the wall, she will be impressed.
