Crying Over the Same Ol' Spilt Milk

Dear Dodoists,
Here, Damen und Herren, is a selfie I borrowed a phone to take:  I send it to you, because it shows the peanut butter cookies I burned while I was on my computer, writing an email expressing my disdain for technology.  It's visual proof of my whole theory:
Sad, yes, but not hopeless-  you can make some more cookies.  I will even give you the recipe:
Cream together 1 cup of butter with 1 cup each of white and brown sugar.  Add 2 eggs.  Add 1 cup of peanut butter.  Beat it up good.  If your peanut butter wasn't salted, put a little salt in, say 1/2 a teaspoon.  Put 3 cups of flour in along with 2 teaspoons of baking soda.  Form them into balls now, or more easily, after an hour or so in the refrigerator.  Make your ball about the size of an unshelled walnut.  Press into them with a fork, to flatten them some.  Bake them at 350 degrees for 10 to 14 minutes.  DO NOT use any electronic technology while you bake them, or your cookies might suffer!
