How about making cookies this week?
You don't need cookies! You've been eating Halloween candy for the last three days!
I haven't had any today.
You had cookies for lunch, for pity's sake!
They weren't homemade cookies. They were food service cookies. Besides, you could do a lot better. Think of it - fresh, homemade cookies....
Hmmmm.... Cookies does sound good. But I don't need a whole batch of cookies lurking around the house.
So make a small batch.
There is no such thing as a 'small batch' of cookies
There is if you make no-bake cookies. You know how good those buckeyes are.
I am too tired to dip cookies in molten chocolate.
So put the chocolate inside the cookies....
Thus was born:
No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/4 c chunky peanut butter
1-2 T olive oil (add this slowly - the dough should be 'dry')
1 c powdered sugar
1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
Line a flat container or a tray with wax paper. Using a small (size 60) scoop or teaspoons, scoop onto the wax paper and refrigerate. Makes 12 very small cookies.
Would I make this recipe again? Well, I might, but they are REALLY sweet. I wound up eating one and tossing the rest away. Maybe my taste buds were just worn out by all that Halloween candy....
