Hello Lovely Readers:)
Today Joeycake* brings you some fun Friday games!
These are actual things people said to me this week:
1. "Everything about you smells like french fries right now."
2. "Are you eating healthy? I hope you're doing a lot of dancing!"
3. "Your husband's an Aries? Yikes. You know, Hitler was an Aries."
4. "Wow! Walking lunges? You're so brave!"
Now match-up who said what:
A. Drugged-up Homeless Man
B. Half-awake Husband
C. Nosy Neighbor
D. Chatty Facialist
(*I love saying that when it's actually just me. Like there are teems of us "here" at Joeycake throwing around ideas with each other and pitching stories to bring to you.)
[Answers: 1-B, 2-A, 3-D, 4-C]
Ok. Now guess which of these things I didn't experience this week:
A. Walking around for 20 minutes looking for my sunglasses when they were on top of my head.
B. Passing Teri Hatcher running on the hiking trail while an overweight paparazzo tried to keep up with her.
C. Seeing a girl wearing an (ironic?) eyepatch while making out with her ass-grabbing boyfriend.
D. Eating a minimum of 5 cookies after every single meal.
That was a trick question. All of those things happened for reals.
Ok. Now here's a multiple choice...
These cookies contain:
A. Peanut Butter
D. All of the above activating the Trinity of Cookie Deliciousness.
That was too easy.
I know I always say this but these are so good! Especially if you like getting peanut butter in your chocolate. Or chocolate in your peanut butter.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies
recipe adapted from Bon Appetit
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
1t baking soda
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 (packed) cup brown sugar
1 cup extra chunky Skippy peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 large egg
1 1/2t vanilla extract
7 oz. semisweet (or dark) chocolate chips or chunks
Whisk together the flour, oats, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside. With an electric mixer, cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter and honey. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Gradually add the flour mixture bit by bit until just incorporated. Stir in the chocolate. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 350. Roll rounded tablespoonfuls of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake 12-14 minutes, or until cookies are puffed, slightly brown on top and still very soft to the touch. Cool on baking sheets 5 minutes and then transfer to cooling racks.
