HF Tutorial: PEANUT BUTTER Chocolate Chip Cookies

     I found this recipe in the December issue of Southern Living magazine.  It looked to be very simple to make so I tore out the page and saved it for later use. Last month I was hungry for something sweet and easy to make and remembered this recipe that I saved. I must say it was very easy to make and scrumptious to eat! I do have a confession though I ate all the cookies within 2 days.  So if you are a person who does not have self-control like me, you may want to pass on this recipe or give half the cookies away to a friend or neighbor.  :)

The recipe claims to make 2 dozen but I did not get that many out of the dough. This recipe doubles nicely.

1 cup of creamy peanut butter
¾ cup sugar
1 large egg
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  Parchment paper

  1. Preheat the oven 350°
  2. Combine peanut butter, sugar, egg, baking soda, & salt in a medium bowl and stir until well blended. Gently mix in chocolate morsels.
  3. Line baking sheets with parchment paper place rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart on them
  4. Bake at 350° for 12-14 minutes until lightly browned. Cool the baking sheets on a wire rack for 5-7 minutes the move cookies to a wire rack and continue to cool for 15 minutes.
