He said he'd bake the chocolate chip cookies. After last night's burnt ones, I asked him to be careful and not burn these.

I mean, how hard is it to put some frozen cookie dough lumps on a baking sheet and bake them properly?

Yeah, yeah, yeah...blow me off and ignore what I have to say.

Guess what?

Yep...burnt cookies AGAIN.

I'm going to bed...without cookies.

He burnt frozen cookies? I weep for you both;)

Dear lord, what has it all come down to? A cookie is a terrible thing to waste. Sigh.

These are the easiest and most delicious cookies EVER:

1/2 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg

Mix well - it'll seem "loose" at first, but it'll thicken up as you stir it. form into balls using 1 - 2 tablespoons of dough. Flatten slightly. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 15 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE (sorry - it's crucial with these cookies). Leave on the pan to cool for a few minutes before moving to a wire rack.

They are heavy and dense and sooooooo good. You can add chocolate chips or peanut butter chips too - that makes them extra good.

These are truly spectacular and so easy. Tell your husband to make a batch of them tomorrow (he owes you) and let me know what you think.

Dangit. That sucks. I hope you get some good un-burnt ones soon.

OK, I did make her new cookies last night, and those ones were not burnt. I ate the burnt ones.

Apparently I needed to raise the oven rack one level so that the tops can cook, without the bottoms burning.

Well, as long as it was a learning experience. I still think you're sweet for trying. :)

(for what it's worth, I just burned a pumpkin pie's crust with the middle still too runny).

Yeah, he's a good egg.
