From the Best Ever Cookie Cook Book
note: this works great in a ‘ratchet’ style cookie press.
Oven Temp: 350 F
Time 10 – 15 mins
Makes: 2 1/2 dozen
I simply love these made on a stone. Pampered Chef sells stones for baking, but I have one that I bought for $10 at Specialty store. Now that my stone is conditioned… works great except you can’t use the cookie press. The cookie press makes for rapid cookie making and… allows you to instantly portion size your cookies. Portion control means leaner waist and allows you to make the most of your baking efforts. You’ll eat less, make more cookies and have cookies in the house longer. Or so the theory goes.
In reality, you’ll have to fight off the family longer… but then again… its only because they love you, err, okay they love your cookies!
1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup peanut butter
1 small egg
Measure directly into mixer bowl, then turn on your mixer slowly!:
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt (if not using salted butter, I always omit)
