I have discovered the Miracle Cookie. A friend posted this super simple recipe on fb (perhaps the first useful thing EVER posted in that craptastic e-universe) and it's not only easy, it's pretty tasty.
Mothereffing Miracle Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup organic peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
3/4 cup brown sugar
Stir together until incorporated and spoon on cookie sheet lined with silicone pad (to prevent bottoms sticking or burning). Flatten with a fork and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes (start watching around 10 minutes). Pull from oven when just firm and bottoms browned, cool on rack. Voila! Peanut butter cookies. It's pretty good with semi-sweet chocolate chips stirred in, too.
