What’s Cooking @ Casa d’ Amado

27 Aug

 

My wife and I were invited to have lunch with an Indian family.  We tried to think of what we could bring.  The family is vegetarian and does not drink alcohol…making us wonder how they manage here in the Czech Republic where meat and alcohol are the standard staples.  We settled on cookies American Style.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Cream together butter and sugars until pale and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in peanut butter. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to peanut butter mixture and blend in. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet and crisscross mark them with a floured fork. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, until cookies just start to colour around the edges.
2. Yield: 2 dozen cookies

(Serves 24)
