I had a “bit” of a meltdown making these cookies. My oven is old and the temperature fluctuates—a lot—which makes not burning things hard. Especially cookies. To make a not so long story really short, I burned the bottom of the first batch and the tops of the second batch. Then I cursed my oven and ate 8 cookies in a row — because despite being overdone they were still really tasty. Can you tell I’m an emotional eater? I did try to use the prettiest ones for this picture, but take my word for it, these taste way better than they look.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sifted brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup sifted flour
Makes approximately 36-40 cookies.
Cream butter with peanut butter, sugar and egg until light and fluffy. Add flour and mix until smooth. Measure dough in rounded spoonfuls. Flatten with a fork. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Enjoy.
