It was a delightfully restful Labor Day for moi. I made these soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies (recipe by Martha), and I have to say that they rank among the best ever. (Shhh...they're even better than these.) From her cookbook, I found a variation on the recipe linked above. Substitute half of one of the sticks of butter with a 1/2 cup of peanut butter. It's the best combination of flavors.
Nums. Of course the irony on this holiday is that they were really easy to make and even easier to enjoy. Now, the ease of burning them off? A different story.
