Peanut & Peanut butter Cookies!

2011-09-02-01-26-09_1000001219

We have been working hard here to make lots of snacks from scratch that the kids can eat but that they also can help make! The girls love cooking and often they fight over who can put what in and who turns on the mixer...so, I took the time today to make cookies with just Peanut while Gator & Achoo played in the playroom. We had such a fun tme!

She was excited to wear her apron, stand on the chair and be the only one mixing things. She thought it was great!!! We mixed up all the ingredients and Peanut, licked the Peanutbutter spoon! And then we rolled them into balls and she pressed the forks for me!

She pushed down the fork so hard that I had to fix some of the cookies. When I looked at them I could only think 'these look really gross' and my hands were slimey and smelled like peanutbutter.

Thankfully, I put them in the oven and they turned out smelling delicious. I didn't try one but the kids all loved them!

The recipe I used was: The Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever. I'm not sure if they really are the best ever but the kids were happy and that's what mattered. Oh! And, I was actually thinking about attempting the simple peanut butter cookie recipe but I couldn't remember what it was -- 3 ingredients or was it 4? Peanutbutter, Sugar & Egg maybe? Anyone know what I'm talking about...
