These are tulips that were in my house when I was making cookies. They are pretty.
I'm realizing that if this project is ever going to end (and at last count there's something like 85 recipes left), I am eventually going to have to tackle the complicated and challenging recipes. I mean there's the Saag Panir recipe that involves making your own cheese for a tasty Indian recipe. Or there's the whole baked fish. Hand made fettuccine noodles aren't exactly a 30-minute meal, either. But for now I'm reaching for the low-hanging fruit, recipes that I can fit in here and there. As evidence, the desserts are all mostly done. Desserts are easy because they're typically recipes that involve ingredients you already have on hand--namely sugar and flour. That trend continued with today's recipe...In choosing what to take to a Royal Wedding-watching brunch, I opted for a simple and classic treat: peanut butter cookies.
Ooey-gooey peanut butter cookie dough
Blend all the ooey-gooey ingredients first (butter, peanut butter, sugar, vanilla). Keep in mind that if you're every stranded on an island and you have to choose just one food to eat, you might want to consider choosing this tasty dough (so good). The flour and leavening goes in next. Mix all together, roll into balls, flatten with a fork, and bake yourself some cookies.
So while the newlyweds and other royals are enjoying their bacon sandwiches, we're indulging in the Fiddlehead's peanut butter cookies--yum!
Fresh out of the oven. Enjoy!
