The Cooking Chronicles: Super Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

This shouldn't really qualify as a "Cooking Chronicles" entry, as what I made tonight was essentially baked peanut butter, but I wanted to include a picture, so here it goes:

Thwarted by my inability to find polenta flour, I was forced to switch from my desired Lemon Almond Polenta cake to my plan B craving, which this weekend has been Peanut Butter Cookies. I typically try to avoid recipes printed on the back of packages, but for ease and all-out laziness, I resorted to Kraft's suggestion, albeit substituting the chunky version instead.

I think the preparation time worked itself out to 5 minutes, so topped off with 15 minutes in the oven, this was by far the fastest cookie recipe I've ever tried. The end product was all right - I should have omitted some of the sugar, but really, for 20 minutes, I can't complain.

Hey Sharon,

I made these cookies last weekend for the first time and with less sugar than they suggested. They are good for me being a non baker. Anything called super easy in a recipe is for me!

I'm sure you can graduate beyond "super easy," but feel free to share any recipes that you think I might enjoy too :).

Hee, I just signed up for that recently, after prompting from another friend. Thanks for the suggestion though! Let me know of your own cooking experiments :).
