"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Sharon Hallie


1 cup melted butter (unsalted butter)
2 cups white sugar
2 Tsp Vanilla
2 TBS Molasses
1 1/2 Tsp baking soda
1 Tsp baking powder
1/2 Tsp salt
1 Cup peanut butter
2 beaten eggs
2 1/2 cups flour (no need to sift)

Preheat oven to 375. Place rack in middle position

Microwave butter to melt. Add sugar, vanilla, and molasses in a large bowl. Stir until blended, then add baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix well

Measure out the peanut butter (spray measuring cup with PAM first to prevent sticking). Stir in the bowl and mix well. Add beaten eggs and stir.

Begin to add the flour to the mix 1/2 cup at a time mixing well after each addition. Continue until all ingredients are thoroughly blended.

You can "roll" the dough in your hands to make dough balls the size of an unbroken walnut shell, but we just use a small or medium scoop.

Space the balls out and gently flatten with the tines of a fork. bake at 375 for 13 to 15 minutes or until the edges just begin to turn golden in color.

Cool the pan for at least 3 minutes before removing it to a cooling rack. Let cool an additional 20 minutes before placing on plate or tin.
