The death match (why can't we all just get along?)

In one corner we have the peanut butter cookie. In the other corner we have Peanut butter's worthy opponent Chocolate Chip

I took Xavier with me to vote today. Since we have gotten home he's been making me vote for "the president cookie". How it works is; if you like chocolate chip cookies best you put a strip of paper in a blue hat. but if you like peanut butter best then you put your paper in a red hat. However, since Marc is working we have an even number. So I'm the lucky person who gets to cast 2 votes! OOOOhhhhh! Shhhhhhh! We're about to hear the results.... PEANUT BUTTER WINS! PEANUT BUTTER WINS!
In light of our recent election here's a great and easy peanut butter cookie recipe:
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
PREHEAT oven to 325°F. Mix peanut butter, sugar and egg until well blended. Refrigerate 30 min. Roll peanut butter mixture into 18 balls. Place, 2 inches apart, on ungreased baking sheet. Flatten each ball, in criss-cross pattern, with fork.
BAKE 18 to 20 min. or until lightly browned. Cool 5 min. Remove from baking sheet to wire rack; cool completely.
