You know those weeks where you’re madly busy, but with absolutely nothing to show for it?
Yup, one of those. Oh, things got done, just nothing much I can post about. Family to stay for 3 days; cooking, cleaning, shopping and other exciting tasks; admin for the annual national motorbike rally we’re organising; and sewing. Where’s that last bit, then? Well, I went on a bit of a scrappy bender and got another four blocks done, but I can’t show them because they’re for ScrapHappy Day. I also can’t post about the F²F³ blocks I made for Sue because she hasn’t received them yet and I don’t want to spoil the surprise (but if you want to take a look, head over to the gallery). So, feeling a bit meh about everything, I made peanut butter cookies. As you do….
Personally, I could eat the whole batch of these babies in one sitting, but being an adult (still a work in progress, I’m afraid), I made an effort and controlled myself. Most of them are still in the container… One of the main things I love about them is that they’re so simple and quick.
Put everything in a bowl and beat till well combined. The mixture will be wet, not like dough.
*Personally, I prefer raisins but I’m not allowed to eat them just now, so choc chips it is. And yes, you can have both…
Bake at 175°C/350°C till golden brown, about 15-20 mins, depending on your oven. (They’ll still be soft and chewy.)
Slide the paper off the tray and onto a cooling rack. Once the cookies are warm rather than hot, remove from the paper. You can wait till they’re cool, but… why? They’re gluten free, lactose free, and with the choc chips, fructose-free. But I’m making no promises about calories.
So now you can see why it’s important to keep busy. When you’re not, cookies happen 😉
