Valeries cookies (aka peanut butter cookies)
What you will need:
1 large egg
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (she used organic I used Kraft peanut butter)
1/2 cup softened margarine (she used butter)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 1/4 cup flour (halving it with whole wheat tastes great too)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
dark chocolate chips (amount to your liking, I added these in not in original recipe)
How to make:
Measure out the butter and peanut butter and microwave for 30 seconds to soften it up, add more time if you like your ingredients softer to mix. Add in egg and both sugars mixing with a spoon (no electric mixer needed here!) Add in vanilla, baking soda and salt mixing well. Now add in flour in small batches until dough forms. Add in chocolate chips if you please.
Using a cookie scoop or 1 tbsp measure spoon and scoop out dough and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet spaced apart the cookies do spread.
* dusting the cookie scoop with flour between cookies helps them not stick.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 9 minutes, cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute and transfer to cooling rack.
If you happen to live in Winnipeg and want to visit my friend Valerie she owns and works at Casa Burrito and makes the best fish tacos in the city, imo!
