Dorie's Peanut butter cookies
Two of my sisters came up in the weekend – we went to see Priscilla, Queen of the Desert on Saturday night. It was fabulous! I did some baking on Friday night for them coming to stay – I made the caramel slice again that I had made last week and I also wanted to make some chocolate chip cookies. My sister, Kristy, loves peanut butter (as do I!) so I decided to make peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. I used a Dorie Greenspan recipe and it was fabulous! The cookies had chocolate chips in them of course, but as well as peanut butter they had salted peanuts. I didn’t have any salted peanuts, so I just roasted my own and added a sprinkling of salt.
The recipe did call for 2 eggs, but I just used one as I like my biscuits to be not quite as flat as some of those American cookie recipes you see. One egg worked perfectly fine and my cookies had the perfect amount of crunch and slight chew.
I have been awarded a Rockin’ Girl Blogger award from Cakelaw. Thanks Cakelaw – I am so honoured!! I get to give the award to five other bloggers. I think I will do one a day for this week, so today’s award goes to Rebecca from West Coast Kitchen. Rebecca is a fellow kiwi blogger and she makes and sells the most delicious looking baking.
