Transitions

Tomorrow is a transition as our daughter enters the last year of her “tweens” turning 12.  I hope we always have the loving relationship we do now through the upcoming teen years.

Chase is a blessing and I could not be more proud of who she is becoming in this world.  She had a bit of a rough start arriving 5 weeks early and she has not stopped pushing forward in life since.  She is just like her momma doing things her own way 🙂

4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

That’s correct—4 INGREDIENTS!!  1 cup peanut butter / 1 cup sugar / 1 egg / 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Typical scene…my daughter runs in from school and says “mom, I forgot for the National Elementary Honor Society talent show tomorrow I need to make peanut butter cookies for the bake sale”.  So let’s see, we have voice lessons, hockey, barn chores, dinner, homework and somewhere we have to fit in making cookies now.  Plus I was out of eggs but luckily there were 3 in the coop!!

This is from a link I shared a while back called 33 Genius Three Ingredient Recipes ( http://www.buzzfeed.com/rachelysanders/genius-three-ingredient-recipes )

We added chocolate chips so it was 4 ingredients.  We also doubled the recipe. I was very skeptical as I make a mean peanut butter cookie but use many more ingredients, take more time and use a few more dishes.  This recipe was genius for me tonight!!!  Mine are not gluten free and BONUS…these are!!

The recipe is under the link above.  Great recipe, easy, hassle free, fast and mighty darn tasty!!!

I rolled the cookies into “walnut” size balls and my daughter pressed them for the criss cross.  This made 59 cookies total.  We baked them for exactly 12 minutes each.
