Peanut Butter Friday!!!!!

I had another recipe that I had wanted to make today, however, my 16 year-old son has been patiently waiting for peanut butter cookies. Each day he asks me. "is TODAY the day for peanut butter cookies?"

He forget to ask me this morning *wink*

While in culinary school, I had the coolest job ever. I still cannot believe that I got paid to do something that I loved so. I worked behind the scene on a cooking segment that aired nightly during the news.

I would take each featured recipe & do all of the prep work twice. I would them prepare one of the recipes and give the chef the prepped ingredients for the other. He would prepare the second set of the recipe on the air and the one that I had made was the display.

Seriously? Most. Awesome. Job. Ever.





In this episode we made stuffed bologna.

don't ask.







One episode that we filmed featured 3 ingredient recipes. Here is a 3-ingredient peanut butter cookie!


Since I like to live on the edge (  being the wild child that I am) I pushed the limit & made it a 4 ingredient recipe!!!!

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg.


(this is where I get wild.. brace yourselves...)

a bag of Hershey's kisses




directions~

preheat oven to 350 degrees


Beat egg in a mixing bowl. Add peanut butter & sugar; mix well. Drop by rounded Tablespoons ( I use a cookie scoop) onto parchment-lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart ( these babies spread).

Unwrap Hershey's kisses & place in the center of each cookie. Bake for 10-13 minutes, depending on your oven.


Since the ingredients were so simple, it was easy to double the recipe, which I did


I didn't even need a calculator!!!!!

what can I say? I'm a mathlete!





The cookies came out great. Ryan will be very happy today.. not only because it's Friday..... but also because he has this whole tray of cookies waiting for him form his crazy mama!
