excursions in baking black

A couple of weeks ago my husband asked me to make peanut butter cookies, so I looked up a new recipe and made some. The recipe I used is from all recipes, and can be found HERE. For a heads up, the batter needs to sit in the refrigerator for an hour before you bake the cookies, so plan accordingly.

5. Put cookie dough in refrigerator for one-hour.

6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.

7. Roll into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets.

8. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern.2015-02-22 19.13.392015-02-22 19.12.45

9. Bake cookies in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown (Monitor first batch more closely, since every oven is different, as well as cookie size). I like to make my cookies gooey, so I take them out when the bottom starts to brown.
