1 3/4c Oats
2tsp Baking Powder
2 Sticks of Butter, chilled and diced
3/4c Peanut Butter
1 1/2c Brown Sugar
Honey, a fair amount
Chocolate Chips, a handful or two
Mini Marshmallows, a handful or two
Today I asked my three year old daughter what kind of cookies she would like to make. She said she didn’t know so I suggested she look in the pantry and figure it out. She grabbed chocolate chips, peanut butter, honey, and mini marshmallows. I asked if she needed anything else and she pulled out the flour and sugar. Not too bad for a three year old. What’s your fucking excuse? If you can’t create without the crutch of a cookbook or the Food Network, remember that someone who has only been on this earth for 1,200 days can. Mull on that one for a while, shit for brains.
Toss the flour, oats, baking powder, and salt in a food processor. Jack that shit up. Dump in the diced butter and use “on and off” turns until incorporated. Set aside. Cream the peanut butter, brown sugar, honey, vanilla, and eggs in a super gigantic bowl. Slowly and gradually mix the dry into the wet. Stir in the chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. Roll into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with tin foil. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Once they are done, immediately move the cookies to a cooling rack or else they will stick to the foil and you will have an enormous fucking mess on your hands. Eat it.
