Take a break

Who knew??  I sure didn't.  I needed a break from staring at old microfilm pages as I searched for ancestor information so I visited Susan at The View From Great Island to see what she was cooking today.  Don't visit her site if you're hungry.  You will either run for the kitchen to try what she is offering for the day or drool looking at it.
 Today it was Flourless Cashew butter cookies.   I didn't use cashew butter, I used just regular ol' grocery store peanut butter.
Simple, simple, simple, simple, simple. 

1 egg
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup cashew (or any nut) butter
1 cup chocolate chips

Whisk the egg and sugar together till well blended, beat in the baking soda and butter and fold in the chips.  THAT'S IT!!  Yeah, about 2 minutes worth of effort.

Drop by balls onto a parchment covered cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 12-13 minutes.  I baked mine for 15 minutes.  They will look soft but like a perfect just underdone cookie.  Take them out, let them cool and groan as you eat them.   Very light, very.

Go visit her site.  You will want to live in her refrigerator.
