Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
I have to admit that baking is not my forte. I used to love baking in high school and would always be popping this or that in the oven, but I fell of that bandwagon once college hit and have stayed off ever since.  So, when I decided to tackle these cookies, I knew that I had to study up on what I was getting myself into because I was a little rusty. It might surprise many people to know that I was actually pre-med in college and worked in a hospital lab for a year (I know — big career switch). But that's to say that I am no stranger to exacting measurements and understanding the necessity for precision. You see, baking is much like science, much more than cooking is, and it's all about creating a balance when it comes to cookies. What is that exactly? Well, I followed Michael Ruhlman's advice of having a 1:2:3 ratio for sugar to fat to flour, and, as he advises, then you can play around with whatever else you want from there. It's also a good idea to have a leavener like whipped egg whites, baking soda, or baking powder.  So that's what I did for these chocolate peanut butter cookies. Plus follow these tips for making the perfect cookie.
