Do you have peanut butter? An egg? How about sugarbakingsodavanillaminichocolatechips?? I knew you would have these things on hand! Because that’s all it takes to make the most delicious peanut butter chocolate chip cookies ever. I’m not kidding, people.
Here’s the kicker, though. I didn’t have all of those ingredients on hand. Well, I did, but not nearly enough. So I decided to trick the mind and make these cookies miniature instead. Friends, a lesson: if you decide to make cookies in bite size so it actually looks like you’ve made more than you have (thinking that they will last you longer), you actually end up with having to make cookies sooner than expected because people eat them so fast! Fact. Seriously, people were so drawn to these little cookie-lets. They flew out of my cookies jar, handfuls at a time, just because they were so small! There is apparently no guilt factor when eating a miniature cookie…or, apparently, 30 of them.
But it wasn’t just their size – these cookies were so appealing because they were just so…cute. That’s exactly the appeal of these cookies. They’re cute, and they’re small, and most importantly, they represent “portion control”. But they’re also soft and crumbly and my goodness, so yummy. Make them for their ease, make them for their cuteness, but please just make them and go crazy. Everyone around you sure will.
