Peanut butter cookies – yum! I have had my eye in these cookies for a while. They look so good in the picture and look so easy too. Rocker Dude, as usual, was a bit more hesitant and always steered me elsewhere. But now I had an excuse and a reason why I had to make these cookies.
This week’s recipe was hosted by Jasmine of Jasmine Cuisine – thanks for choosing this recipe!
I took off work on Wednesday because the Little Rocker’s playgroup has a policy that after being off all of August, they like to ease back into service. So Tuesday, the Little Rocker was in playgroup for two hours, Wednesday until 12:30 and Thursday until 5 pm. Rocker Dude took off Tuesday, so Wednesday was my turn. It was his first day teaching so there was no way he could take off.
I decided that my day off would be super-productive. After dropping off the Little Rocker at 7:30, I went to the store and did some grocery shopping. There are a ton of sales now because of the holiday coming up (Rosh Hashana). I shlepped it all home (now I don’t normally use Yiddish in my posts, but sometimes it just really expresses the reality – carrying 40 lbs. of groceries home – a 15 minute walk – was quite a shlep!), and then proceeded to bake. I made the cinnamon swirl bread that TWD made a couple of months ago – it tasted just as good! And I made these cookies (I also did laundry and cleaned the house, but who wants to hear about that?)
I was right, these cookies are really easy to make. Pretty much mix everything and dump it in. I did not add the peanuts in order to respect a certain person’s preference that there be no nuts in his food and they were still yummy.
When the Little Rocker woke up from her three-hour long nap after coming home from playgroup, she had a hot cookie waiting for her, and she gobbled it up. Rocker Dude’s comment was, “These are the best cookies you have made so far.” Now he doesn’t really mean that because there are two cookies that he likes more, but of the cookies that I made for the TWD group, these are the best so far (maybe he was just remembering last week’s cookies and thought that anything was better than those!)
