au naturale: natural peanut butter & chocolate chip cookies


For quite a while now, I’ve been jonesing for some peanut butter cookies. It all started a couple of weeks ago when I had a fantastic peanut butter and chocolate cookie at the “Our Town Cafe” on E. Broadway. For the past week, I started looking for recipes but seeing that we only use natural peanut butter in this household, finding an exact recipe where I wouldn’t have to make modifications became quite the chore. Tonight I settled on one that specifically called for natural peanut butter (a real rarity in peanut butter cookie land).

The cookies are in the oven as I type and they smell pretty damn delicious! The batter is pretty stiff and greasy. Depending on how these come out, I may half the amount of butter if I decided to make these again.

    The easiest, best, Peanut butter cookies ever, are:

    1 egg
    1 cup peanut butter (naural or not)
    1 Cup sugar, may use 1/2 brown sugar.
    1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
    Choc Chips, Nuts, Etc. about 1/2 – 3/4 cups

    Stir egg,sugar and vanilla together, mix in Peanut butter. Stir until mixed well. Roll into balls and smash gently with fork. Bake 350 degrees for about 8-10 minutes. These are unbelievable, But real good.
