Mom-certified: "You always make such a mess when you cook"
I swear I'm almost out of cookie recipes. After yesterday's daffodil cake disaster, I needed an idiot-proof recipe. It's like in dog training, when your pup is getting frustrated, you gotta get his confidence back up with an easy command he knows. Well, this is my baking equivalent of "sit." (We're in the middle of a dog training course, can you tell?) These are super simple. If you're also coming off of a daffodil cake disaster, feel free to just eat the dough and bypass the potential pitfalls of baking them.

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 flax eggs* with one tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup Earth Balance margarine
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Enough flour to make soft dough (I used about 2 cups)
    *3 tbsp warm water + 1 tbsp ground flax = 1 flax egg
Roll dough into small balls, and press down with a fork. Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.

See? Idiot-proof.
Happy Monday, everyone.
