pancakes and browned butter peanut butter cookies

Yum! Sooo much peanut butter

Mmmmm delicious :D

Yay for chocolate chips! The 5 year old didn't want them... the 16 year old did. Weird little 5 year old child...

Browned butter specks right thurrrrr :P

So today I decided to try browning butter when I made peanut butter cookies. I think I may have over-browned it, but they still tasted good :D They were very thick and almost fudgy. I think part of that was the peanut butter chips, too. You don' t need to add those, but they definitely make it better. If I had peanuts I would have added them, too, but we never have peanuts. Chocolate chips would also taste good, I'm sure, but I really just wanted mass amounts of peanut butter haha.
Also, I tried Nutella for the first time. Oh my lord. Definitely going to find something to bake this in soon :P

Chill in fridge for an hour or freezer for 30 minutes. Form into balls, flatten slightly and bake at 350 for about 9 minutes.

I make these pancakes for my little sister sometimes, because she's obsessed with pancakes and these are delicious and super fluffy

3/4 cup and 2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons malted milk powder

Put milk and vinegar in a bowl to sour for 5 minutes.
Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, malted milk powder, and salt.
Whisk egg and vanilla into milk and then whisk into dry ingredients. Do not wisk until all the lumps are gone!
Pour onto lightly greased preheated pan and cook until the batter starts to bubble. Flip over and cook until cooked through.
Throw some chocolate chips or berries onto the batter right after you pour it into the pan. YUM.
