Peanut Butter & Chocolate (Again)

Have you all figured out my favorite food combo yet?  Here we have a ridiculously easy recipe that I haven't made since July, when I made a giant batch of the dough to sell in the final month at Entree Vous (Shout Out to Ann!).  Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies.  As we were going up to have dinner with my dad and stepmom and CJ can't eat gluten, I like bringing up a treat that we can all enjoy together.  This is the perfect little cookie to take somewhere if you have A) hardly any ingredients on hand and B) 20 minutes before you have to leave.  They take less than 5 minutes to mix up and less than 10 minutes to bake - perfect.  Oh, and if you only have the 5 minutes, the dough is crazy good all on its own! :)

EZ PB Cookies

1 Cup Peanut Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Egg
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 tsp. Salt
3/4 Cup Chocolate Chips or Mini M&M's

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine ingredients through salt.  Mix in chocolate chips or M&M's.  Drop by Tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet.  Bake 8-10 minutes, until edges are just turning golden.  Let cool on cookie sheets 1-2 minutes, then remove to wire rack or paper towel to cool completely.
