I just finished working for, like, 9 1/2 hours, and I’m tired. Actually, I may be tired because for some reason I woke up at twenty till five AM, and couldn’t fall back to sleep, which is just plain mean.
I made about a bizillion (ok, about a gross, e.g. apox. a dozen dozen’s) of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies yesterday. We ate at least 9 each; then I took 3 dozen in to work today, and they were pretty much gone by noon. They went over well with all involved. Probably I can remember the recipe. . .
2 cups white sugar
2 cups brown sugar
4 sticks of softened butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups peanut butter
6 cups of flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugar; mix in vanilla, beat in eggs, continue to mix and add in peanut butter. Mix dry ingredients together; stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips. Use a small cookie scoop; bake on a cookie sheet for approx. 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
It was originally from our Fannie Farmer cookbook, but she used shortening instead of butter and no chocolate. Also, she hand rolled each cookie and then flattened it twice with a fork. If you use butter instead of shortening, the cookies don’t need to be mooshed flat; they’ll melt flat. Flat enough, anyway.
I once again discovered that if you shop for your books online instead of at the campus store, you can save something like 45%. Last semester I took it from $979 to $5** (don’t remember exactly). This time it down from $800 to about $450.
I’m going to try to do better this semester with staying inside the word limit. Then again, that might be the fear stemming from an entire boxful of books speaking.
