Peanut Butter Cookies ~ almost perfect!

You don’t really need another peanut butter cookies recipe, do you? I didn’t think so. There are so many already floating around on the internet, not even talking about cooking books… So, I will not type out ours, but rather show you the pictures I took while making them. I had a lot of fun mixing, taking photos. Forming, taking photos. Baking, taking photos, Eating, taking – oops, no I didn’t. So, I will link this post to pret-a-vivre who wants us to show her moments that made us … happy πŸ™‚

Oh, and for those that cannot go without a recipe, here it is in a picture: Peanut Butter Cookies -takenΒ  from a cookbook from 1980.

Very wise words that I will follow next time when baking these peanut butter cookies. But for now… here’s the solution:

    • They are not half bad, Keri, thank you. Very basic, but then again – what do you do with Peanut Butter Cookies? I know there are some fancy recipes, which are probably very good, but I think a lot of times ‘simple is the best’
