mmm. cookies.  
There was just barely a cup and a half of cocoa left, and exactly four eggs, so fate was clearly decreeing that I make a double batch of reese's cookies. Chocolate cookie with peanut butter chips. Except that because I had a bag of milk chocolate chips, I decided to mix them half and half with the peanut butter.

Either my oven is running cool, and it's been baking other things fine, or they were on crack when they suggested the time to cook. 8-9 minutes, ha. More like 12 and still perhaps a little underdone.

2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 2/3 cup peanut butter chips (or a mix of peanut butter and chocolate chips)

Heat over to 350. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Gradually add flour mixture while beating. Stir in chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-9 minutes (more like 12, from my experience, but start with 8)

Ovens are notorious for not running at the temperature they're set to by their outside dial. Most cooks recommend picking up an oven thermometer to always check the actual temp.

The SWM oven runs anywhere from 50-75 degrees hotter than the (analog) dial reads.

That might be it, though other things seem to be cooking fine. They may just be less sensitive to temperature, though.
