Bachelor Cooking

Belladonna received a lesson in "bachelor cooking" today.

Belladonna has been reveling in incredibly complicated and fussy juice "recipes". She asked questions like, "How much is 2/9ths of a muskmelon?"  She has not been impressed with, "Just throw in a 1/4...Measurements really don't matter when everything is edible all-by-itself."

She needed recalibrating.

The next batch was even better.  Brown and crispy around the edges.


Bachelor cookies:

  • About one cup of smooth peanut butter (eyeball measurement)
  • About one cup of sugar (eyeball measurement)
  • Two eggs (you just need the insides, the shells go in the trash)
  • A splash of vanilla extract

Stir until smooth

  • add between a half cup and one cup of pancake mix (measure by eyeball)
Stir until smooth.
  • Add chocolate chips.  (We used Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet chocolate chips)
  • Add more chocolate chips (Cookie dough expands when cooked, chocolate chips do not)
  • Add chips from any left over bags in the cupboard (butterscotch, peanut does not matter.  They are all good)
  • Nuts....are there any nuts up in that cupboard?
  • Dump that last little bit of oatmeal out of that container.  We will tell Mrs ERJ we were cleaning up.

12 minutes at 350F on an Air-bake cookie sheet.

Cool 4 minutes before removing from cookie sheet.

Cool 10 more minutes.  Serve with cold milk.
