I am spoiled by my coworkers, I really am. They are the kind of guys you can call to bail you out of the ditch or jail. Though I haven’t tried the latter yet and have no plans to .
First snow of the year I tried slowing down for a curve only to go sliding through the curve, cross the centerline, do a 180 degree turn all before coming to rest against a flower bed in some poor soul’s yard. My guardian angel was working overtime. There were no cars coming and I didn’t hit any of the trees, power poles, road signs or houses.
I was fine, truck was fine. Except when I went to move my truck I didn’t have brakes. Uh Oh. I was only a few miles from work and called the office. Within minutes I had two coworkers there ready to rescue me (they live to rescue the damsel in distress). They limped my truck back to the shop and discovered that I had managed to blow all my brake lines. Being awesome like they are, they spent the day replacing brake lines and wouldn’t let me pay for anything.
So, every so often I like to offer the guys bribes. Cookies are always a hit, especially these. They would help me out without bribes, but I believe in saying thank you with food.
Cow Pie Cookies
1 cup butter, or 2 sticks
¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup white sugar
2 ¼ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
5 ounces peanut butter chips
7 ounces melted baking chocolate. Whatever you have on hand is fine.
Preheat oven to 350F
Soften butter and beat until fluffy, then slowly add the brown and white sugar. Beat until light and fluffy then beat in eggs.
In a small separate bowl mix flour and baking soda. Add to butter/sugar mix and mix well/
Melt chocolate until smooth and mix in.
Mix in peanut butter chips. DO NOT melt.
Drop heaping teaspoons onto the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. These cookies like to spread, so don’t crowd them.
Bake 12-14 minutes.
Cool and enjoy!
