PB Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Since we've moved into our new house I haven't really baked or really cooked anything other than spaghetti, tacos, meatballs, anything super easy. My culinary curiosity is at a standstill and I blame it on fatigue and doing other things with the house but last night I must've gotten a second wind after I finished sanding down the last two drawers to the dresser because I wanted to bake something.

I decided to make the "Flourless Peanut-Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie" recipe from the Dec. 2010 edition of Southern Living. I was intrigued by the non use of flour and butter and how easy it looked.

Flourless Peanut-Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie
1 cup of creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup of sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp. of baking soda
1/4 tsp. of salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
Parchment Paper

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Stir together the peanut butter and the next 4 ingredients until well blended.

2. Stir in chocolate morsels (note: I added a handful more of morsels than the recipe called for and I ended up throwing them away because it was to many for the peanut butter mixture)
3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart on parchment paper lined cookie sheet. The recipe says for more ease to spray the tablespoon with cooking spray but I found this to be more messy.

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes and then move to wire rack and cool for another 15 minutes (note: I don't have a wire rack so I let them cool entirely on the baking sheet and they were fine).

This recipe was really easy but because there was no flour the mixture tended to fall apart more easily. I ended up mixing the cookie "dough" before I scooped. They didn't make nice ball shapes but they came out looking like a chocolate chip. Try it! They're not bad just extra peanut buttery =) I'll have a pic a day later ♥
