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!

mmmmmmm! Those cookies sound good and the picture is great.

Although, if you keep posting about all this good food I won't be able accomplish anything. For it seems that I always have to go eat something after visiting here. :)

Thanks, Zachary. But I don't think you can blame your kitchen visits on me. Those are inevitable. :)

Michelle, I tried to visit your blog and comment on the Christmas gifts, but the comments are broken or something. Anyway, they are really neat. I am sure the receivers felt so blessed to receive homemade gifts that show how much you love them!
