Two Sisters Times Two, Serial #3 and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Posted on

So you’re ready to hit the biking trail or the hiking trail, ready to tone up those abs and tighten up those calves which maybe have suffered just a tad from sitting inside all winter (and eating too many R&R treats without enough exercise–believe me, I know the feeling: someone has to sample all these goodies!).

Well, right on! Get outdoors, get some exercise, soak up some sun (but be sure to wear sunscreen)! Reading and Recipes is behind you 100%!

In fact, we’re so much behind this exercise kick we’re going to give you an energy booster treat to propel you through the rigors AND a story to keep you entertained!

Here’s the deal: this week’s Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies will give you high-energy calories to help you burn some of those stored up low-energy calories. And our audio Two Sisters Times Two, Serial #3 will keep you entertained along the way. Just load it onto your favorite mp3 player and pop in the ear buds.

And if you’re going for a long walk or ride, download the first three serials of Two Sisters Times Two and get to know Brooke and Leah, Jodie and Penni right from the start. They’ll be pleased to make your acquaintance.

Springtime is a great time to get some exercise. And R&R is ready to help you along the way!

chewy peanut butter cookiesChewy Peanut Butter Cookies

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

2 Tablespoons light brown sugar, packed

2 teaspoons granulated sugar

3 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter

1 egg white

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

pinch of salt

2 Tablespoons chocolate chips, candies, or dried apple pieces (optional)

chewy pb cookies (small batch)

Add the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar to a large mixing bowl and cream the ingredients together. Add the peanut butter to creamed ingredients and mix in until fully incorporated. Mix in the egg white and vanilla. Slowly add the flour, baking soda, and salt; mix until just incorporated, careful not to over mix. If using chocolate chips, fold those in now. Chill the cookie dough in your refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spoon tablespoon size cookie dough onto cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until cookies just begin to turn golden brown. Remove the cookies from the oven and cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 6 cookies.
