What to do at 1am when you can't sleep and that huge jar of peanut butter just looks so good

Last night at around 1am, my little sister and I decided that we should do something fun because we couldn't sleep. She couldn't sleep because she napped from 4pm til 8pm or so when she came home from school, and I couldn't sleep because I had random stuff on my mind.

So we made peanut butter cookies. This is the pan that we scooped the batter into:

But then we decided to make it one huge cookie instead...

Any bakers out there know that making one big cookie really NEVER works. It ends up getting burned at the edges and uncooked at the centre. But it was 1am...and it really looked beautiful, man:

We both knew it wasn't going to work, but we didn't much care. But then, something great happened! Lo and Behold, it worked like a charm. Check out this beauty...

Then we thought it would be cool to cut it into pizza slices. So we did.

And it was so good.

For interested individuals, the recipe is:

1 cup of peanut butter, 1/2 cup of sugar, and 1 egg. And chocolate chips - I don't remember how much we put in, just keep pouring til it feels right :) Then bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

MMMMMMMM. Looks fabulous. Were you bare footed Ms. Contessa?

Was it moist? Did the pizza cookie crumble when you picked it up? Or was it hard and crunchy? Did the chocolate melt in your mouth??

Man, I want details ok!! Comon English Major, do your stuff.

you do a better job of being a clown. you should stick to that.

Asmaa said...

Squeeky, make the same one and post it on your blog ;)

Elizabeth, I'm not trying to throw anyone off (that would be funny though). That's really the recipe!

Mars, I was barefoot, indeed. How about you write about all this food stuff? I'm an English major, but I think you've got the food descriptions down pat.

Asiya, I shared! I swear...

AP, YOU'RE SO MEAN! >:(
