These Three ingredient Peanut butter cookies are the stuff dreams are made of. Zero hassle = Maximum Flavour. Basically a win win. They are also a great activity to do with young children. My kids joined it and really enjoyed themselves.
Baking with Kids
It's madness. I'm talking about the reality of being in a kitchen with a 3 and 4 year old. I can pretend it isn't, edit my thoughts and say it is wonderful all of the time but on some days i am secretly relieved when one of them gets bored. Don't get me wrong, I love baking/cooking with my kids but there are times when they are constantly fighting to put the ingredients in and kids aren't afraid to fight. They really know how to stand their ground.Then one will drop something on one side, the other will be banging pots and pans on the other side.My kitchen is very small too which doesn't help.
I tell you what though, my kids treasure those moments. My son will constantly remind me about when we made gingerbread/cookies/cakes. I look back on those days with fondness too. I edit the gingerbread fight out of my mind. (They lost legs and everything).
Let me tell you something about these peanut butter cookies, they are delicious, Even the batter was yummy.
VERY QUICK RECIPE!
These peanut butter beauties are mixed, baked and ready within ten minutes.
My husband is about to come in from work. (Its coming up to 7am). He comes in and then slopes off to bed. I don't quite know how he does it to be honest. I could never work through the night. Especially because he went to work at 4 am on Friday, came home for a few hours (didn't sleep) and went back to work at 7pm and is just finishing now. That sentence makes me want to sleep. He will now be back at work at 2pm today and return at 7am tomorrow. Oh, he just called to say he won't be back till 8am.
I have a really dodgy eye this morning. My left eye is stinging so badly that i am sat here with it closed. I look like a pirate without the patch. It's watering too. Tomorrow i have to make ginger bread for my son's school. He got the special bag to take home this weekend. I don't work well under pressure so i'm expecting the gingerbread to have a dodgy eye too.
Yesterday we finally made it to a little algerian cafe near my house. (I will post details soon). I love places where the owners/employees really care about the food and have a passion for it, that they keep walking over to talk about it. He came over so many times that i felt like he was my bestie by the time i left.
To make these peanut butter cookies even easier to make, use 1 cup each of peanut butter and sugar and 1 egg. No scales required!
