Comfort Food: Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Well, for a number of reasons this has been a rough couple weeks (hence a series of self-directed treats, i.e. the freesias) and as of tonight, I have reached a new phase of wallowing, what phase, you ask? The chocolate phase.

But, what is chocolate without a friend though? Not much. Sounds like time to call in the peanut butter. I decided warm, gooey peanuty chocolatey cookies sounded pretty ideal, and after perusing the webernets, got reminded of these really easy cookies that we used to make when I was a kid. The ingredient list is long and complicated, so get a pen... you will need (brace yourself):

1 egg
1 cup PB
1 cup sugar
yep. thats it.

But, there's no chocolate in there. Big Trouble. So, I looked around and found some ideas for modifications, and so now mine also include...
chocolate chips (maybe half a bag?)
about a teaspoon of baking soda
a handful of flour


I baked them for about 10 minutes or so, and then got to enjoy this super yummy snack... mmm....
