So she said she would eat something home-baked if she were to receive it. (I like it when friends ask for what they want, or need, and I think maybe I love the if-then propositional form of asking.) Peanut butter cookies were mentioned.
This recipe rocks, because:
- • It requires only five ingredients, all of which are in probably almost every kitchen in America, or at least every kitchen where impromptu baking is likely to occur.
- • None of those ingredients is flour. These are gluten-free cookies. Which means your friends who are cookie monsters trapped in gluten-intolerant bodies will be even more endeared to you if you surprise them with these.
- • Two out of two taste testers (one with prior knowledge, one without) agree that these do not taste or feel in texture like flourless cookie wannabe. They taste like true peanut butter cookie.
- • These take 11 minutes to bake. Depending on how fast you mix and plop, and if you ignore the “let cool for 5 agonizingly long minutes” instruction, it’s easily under 20 minutes from idea to actual, real, warm-from-the-oven home-baked cookie.
- • Last, but not least, this recipe rocks because the introduction, the prelude, the overture to these cookies makes an analogy between recipes and friendship.
