5 Ingredient Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

My little girl is growing up. These cookies are Olivia's first true foray in the kitchen. I didn't help (well, just got them out of the oven) despite my better judgement. She measured, mixed and whistled while she worked. I on the other hand spent some quality time with my beloved couch and Bravo t.v. and we all enjoyed the fruits of her labor. You're bound to make these at some point because - let's face it, who can resist baking when it's this easy.

5 Ingredient Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp baking soda
½ cup milk chocolate chips (or used semi-sweet)
(I would cheat next time and add just a touch of salt - so 6 ingredients!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips. When blended, mix in the chocolate chips. Using your fingers, form 1 1/2 inch balls (dough will be very wet and sticky) and place onto an un-greased parchment lined cookie sheet. You don't want to make them too big because they do spread. Bake for 9 minutes. Let the cookies sit on the cookies sheet for about 30 seconds to 1 minute before letting cool on a wire rack. When hot they are a bit fragile. Makes around a dozen small cookies.
