Let's get right to it. I had an urge to make cookies tonight. The only problem was I could NOT decide what kind of cookie I wanted and Shane was of no help.
Me: "Shaneeeee. I want to make cookies. What kind do you want?"
Shane: "Yea make cookies!"
Me: "Of course you want cookies. I asked what KIND of cookies."
Shane: "Surprise me."
See? No help. I had to take matters into my own hands.
::Opens up pantry:: Peanut butter! Pumpkin! Bananas! Oh my! And some chocolate chips, why not ;)
Seriously? I questioned whether I could pull it off, but after some searching online I found an adaptable recipe and got down to business.
