Unrecipe of the Week: Hurricane Edition

We’re all hunkered down in New York City, waiting for Hurricane Irene to arrive. For some reason, I got the urge to bake cookies, and of course discovered that I didn’t have the ingredients. They say genious comes from necessity, so I cobbled together something more out of boredom, than the desire to make the perfect cookie.

The results were pretty good!

Indigo Jones‘ Hurricane Cookies

1 cup chocolate peanut butter* (someone gave me a jar of  Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams and it changed the opinion of a lifetime peanut butter hater! It’s available at Whole Foods.)

1 egg

½ cup sugar

¼ cup light brown sugar mixed with a little water

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup chocolate chips

Mix the first 5 ingredients well and stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly with a wet fork.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Cool on a rack and try not to eat them all in one sitting.

I hope this Hurricane passes quickly and our recovery is swift, or we will be posting about diets next week!

Keep safe and dry everyone!

    I actually sprinkled these with a little sea salt to mixed reviews from the family. Try it…it gives an unusual flavor to the cookies.
