In the Kitchen: Peanut Butter Cookies
My cousin Michael and I made peanut butter cookies tonight. He was a big help, and it was nice to bake something together. They have a subdued flavor. I guess that is normal, but it has been a long time since I had any. Actually, they reminded me of shortbread cookies with a peanut butter flavor, although my dad told me to think less "shortbread cookie" and more "sugar cookie." The recipe told me to bake them for 25 minutes. I laughed at that since our oven runs hot (very hot!), but I should have known that even 10 minutes was too hot. I ended up baking each batch for only about eight minutes. Family fun!
