Peanut Butter Smackdown.

Confused and bewildered by the fact that I was actually awake on a Monday morning, and noticing the thick blanket of white snow outdoors, I had but one option to fill the time I’d otherwise have spent sleeping.

Bake some cookies.

How I arrived at this conclusion, I do not know. But that is exactly what happened. It would be the first time I had ever undertaken such a culinary endeavor, so even though I was following a recipe, it was a bold experiment because I did not know how these cookies would turn out or even if I had the talent to produce them properly.

The results?


These are ninja style peanut butter cookies with tiny chocolate chips. The recipe actually came from the label on the peanut butter jar. 1 cup of peanut butter, a half cup of white sugar, and one egg, plus whatever extra little flourish you want, in this case the chocolate chips. Mix until the consistency no longer feels like peanut butter, roll into little balls and shove ’em in the oven at 325° c for 15 minutes. Pretty hard to screw this up, so they turned out really well.

Has the ninja found another calling? No, probably not. More like the ninja has found a new snack.
