Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

These things are so good.  I can’t even say.  Words fail.  The recipe comes from a book that I think you should get.  It’s called One Bite Won’t Kill You and it’s by Ann Hodgman.  It’s hysterical, and practical too.  But this isn’t supposed to be a book review, so I’ll be quiet now.

2 cups creamy peanut butter

2 cups sugar

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons baking soda

a pinch of salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350. Grease two cookie sheets or cover them with parchment paper.

Beat the peanut butter and sugar in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in the eggs and then the baking soda, salt, and vanilla.

Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets. With the tines of a fork, press crosshatches into the balls to flatten them.

Bake the cookies, one sheet at a time, in the middle of the oven, for 10 minutes, or until they’re puffy and golden brown. Let them sit on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes; then transfer them to a wire rack to cool.

Makes 3 to 4 dozen cookies.

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
