What is it about a snow storm that makes people want to bake cookies?
I dunno, but there’s definitely something about that. In anticipation, I planned to post this recipe yesterday. I figured that with the Northeast all snowed in under a “blizzard of the century,” you’d all be baking cookies, and would appreciate a new one to try. Well, turns out that the entire world (or so it seems) was baking cookies, but this one wasn’t part of them. Mostly because I took the day off to be lazy and spend a lot of time in bed and on the couch. You know what I mean, right?
Well, I’m sharing this recipe today. Partly because there’s more snow in the forecast (I know!) but mostly because they’re awesome, and you should make them. Regardless of the weather.
Oh, and because y’all have given me such great feedback on my cookies without butter or margarine, I’ve kept them out of this recipe too. I’ve used oil, so you can feel better about what you feed your families. You’re welcome.
- ¾ cup oil
- ½ cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
