it's a jif

this recipe is one my mom found from here.  it's an easy, yet satisfying cookie that's made without flour!  who knew you could make such morsels without flour?!  they mix up in a jif, cook in a jif and i'm pretty sure you'll eat 'em in a jif!  (even though i don't use jif peanut butter it was still a good pun.)  so get baking!  oh, and by the way, they taste great with chunky peanut butter.

flourless peanut-chocolate cookies

1 cup creamy (or chunky!) peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips (we actually like a little less, like a handful)
1/2 cup roasted salted peanuts (a little less if using chunky peanut butter)

preheat oven to 350 degrees.  

in bowl, stir together peanut butter, sugar, egg, baking soda and salt until well combined.  stir in chocolate chips and peanuts.

with moist hands, roll dough into balls (using about 1 Tbsp of dough).  place on baking sheets and cook until golden and puffy, about 12-14 minutes.  cool 5 minutes on sheet and transfer to rack to cool completely.

yields about 24 cookies.
