|Mommy makes us the most delicious cookies! We hate to share even when she makes us! Kira and I LOVE peanut butter so this is one of our all-time favorite treats!
Peanut Butter cookies
first you gotta talk your mommy into making these, then get her to preheat her oven to 350 F
next is the ingredients
1 cup water
1 tbsp of more water
1 cup smooth all-natural peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of cornmeal
(sometimes mommy will add like a tbsp or two of carob chip powder as well to make Kira and me EXTRA happy!)
Then she's gotta mix the water, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla together, then slowly add in the flour and cornmeal
Then she has to knead it together with hands (maybe she'll let you lick them when she is done!) until it all holds together into a loose ball
Then she has to roll it out with a rolling pin on a floured surface until it is a good thickness (more or less an 1/8 of an inch)
Then she can either use cookie cutters for fun shapes, or a pizza cutter to make squares or whatever. Then once they are cut out, poke them full of holes with a fork (mommy seems to REALLY love that part)
The she's gotta cook them twice, once on 350F for 18 minutes, then let them cool totally off (this is the worst part as I can always smell them by this point!!) After about 20 minutes they need to go back into the oven (this time on 300 F for another 20 minutes until they are hard. Then out they come and onto a cooling rack! I hate waiting on them, but mommy says I'll burn myself if I eat them at this point. They can last in a sealed container for up to 30 days....but whoever has them around for that long??
Also another thing mommy loves to do with them is to mix about 1/2 a cup of natural peanut butter with a 1/4 cup of cornmeal (approximates here as she rarely measures it out the same way twice, but until it is a thicker consistency than peanut butter) and sometimes another tbsp of carob powder, and then some of the mixture between two cookies of the same size and type and OOOOOOOOOOOO is it good! But it is messy so keep them in the kitchen and off of your mommy's carpet or she'll be mad! And DON'T let her share them with neighbors! My mommy always does and those are mine and Kira's cookies! Anyway, hope you enjoy the cookies as much as Kira and I love them! Let me know!
