Spreadable Cookies

Once again, my borderline obsession with the cooking blog "The Pioneer Woman Cooks" makes itself known with this recipe being my contribution to the web this week.

How can you beat her recipes though? Lots of simple, delicious, butter friendly food, always made with fresh ingredients and a lot of applause from your friends and family when you share with them.

IF you share with them, that is. This recipe is one that could easily lead to hoarding.

This is a simple cookie recipe that Ree Drummond refers to as "spreads". Due to their "spread and smear on" nature, the name is self explanatory. Making them yourself, you'll see how shockingly easy they are to throw together too.

They are klutz proof! Even for me, queen of klutz.

My brother, Danny, had an affection for these cookies when I made them for him this past summer. The rest of the family loved them too but, Danny was their biggest fan :)

The other nice thing about these little guys is that the ingredients are things that I always seem to have around the house! Simple food that simply rocks.

Make and enjoy, my friends :)



-1 cup Brown Sugar

-1 cup Margarine

-1 whole Egg

-2 cups Flour

-½ teaspoons Salt

-1 teaspoon Vanilla

-6 ounces, weight ( To 8 Ounces) Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together brown sugar and margarine. Add egg and mix together. Add flour, salt, and vanilla, and mix together well.
Spread dough onto cookie sheet to a thickness of 1/4 to 1/2-inch.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until slightly brown. At this point, pull out of the oven and sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over the top. Return to oven for 1 minute. Remove and spread melted chips over the top. Cut into squares.
