Cookie Week - Day 5
Cookie week has been so great! I wish I could have had you all to my house for a cookie tasting party.
On a side note, I have been baking & photographing all these cookies for about a month. I've also been brushing up on my photography skills in the last month. If you look back over this week's posts, you'll probably be able to tell which photos were taken at the beginning of the cookie photo journey & which were taken towards the end. I'm happy to see improvement in my photography in the past month.
I'm saving my absolute favourite cookie for last. My Peanut Butter Nummies are amazing, if I do say so myself. This is such a moist, chewy peanut butter cookie. No dry, crumbly business here.
makes 2 dozen
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup shortening
1-1/4 cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp. milk
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1-3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 375º F.
Cream first 6 ingredients until smooth. Combine dry ingredients & add to peanut butter mixture. Blend. Drop by teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool slightly, then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
Well, that wraps up my first cookie week! Perhaps I'll make it an annual affair?? What do you think? I'm definitely considering doing a Cookie Week: Christmas Edition come December. Then I can get out my fancier recipes. I'd better get baking so I'm ready in time! Thanks so much for joining me. I love my bloggy friends.
Enjoy your day!
