C is for Cookie

Here's something I noticed: whenever I post photos of cookies, they get a lot of hits and comments. Curious. I posted this earlier in the week when we made peanut butter cookies:

Someone asked for the recipe so here it is -- I no longer know where I found it so I am considering it "open source!"
Peanut Butter Cookies

1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 large egg

Stir in everything but egg and mix with hands. Add egg. Shape dough into small balls (approx one inch). Place on cookie sheets and flatten with a fork (press down, turn fork 90 degrees press down again). Bake for 12-15 min at 350° F. Makes approx 3 doz.

I also have notes for an alternate version that requires no flour; in fact there's not much of anything:

1 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 large egg.

Mix, bake at 325° F for 15 min; makes 24.

Wow, that second recipe is unusual. Does it actually work? It sounds like the word verification, which today is "iguncked".

I have actually baked that second recipe; they were soft but held together. The marvels of chemistry...

Next time, I'll make those and take photos.
