Sundays around my house are a balance between relaxing and being very involved in our church. We were recently blessed to start a night church service, so Sunday mornings have become a haven for cartoons and visits with grandparents. After a few busy hours of getting the family to and from church, my husband and I usually collapse on the couch feeling like it’s much later than it is.
Then comes one of my favorite parts of the weekend – The Walking Dead on AMC! Have you seen this show?! Are you obsessed with it like I am? It has a little more gore than I usually care for, but for being a show about zombies it’s totally not a show about zombies. It’s about people and the drama is totally there. I love it. And I’m usually hungry while I watch it, despite the blood factor.
These cookies are a great way to get something to eat nice and quick. It’s also easily doubled if, say, you’re having a Walking Dead party, or taking a treat to church. And they look nothing like human flesh, so its not such a struggle to eat them while watching zombies eat people. Have I grossed you out yet? Enjoy.
Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup creamy peanut butter (preferably natural)
1 cup granulated sugar (plus more for sprinkling)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix all ingredients together by hand in a medium bowl. Roll into 1 inch balls and place onto prepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Press down lightly with a fork in a cross hatch pattern. Sprinkle sugar lightly over pressed cookies. Bake for 7 minutes. The center of the cookies will still be slightly soft. Let cool completely on the baking sheet.
