Peanut Butter Cookies

I'm getting ready for a girlfriend weekend. Melanie, Kathy, and I are going to Shreveport tomorrow. Our high school classmate, Richard, his wife and their band are performing at Sam's Town. http://www.myspace.com/ladychazzandthetramps (One of these days I'll learn the correct way to insert a link!) Melanie and I are leaving before noon tomorrow to go get Kathy, then we are headed east. Sam decided to take the opportunity to go visit his son and finally take my Harley there for him to sell for us. But I have a Monday obligation. Cookies. The library's Friends group is taking sweets to City Hall Monday for the employees and the city council. Figuring that I'd need a nap when I get home Sunday, I decided to do my baking tonight.

I just love the cookie dough scoopers. They make short work of scooping out peanut butter cookie dough. I don't have to roll spoonfuls between my hands any more.


While the cookies were in the oven,

I cleaned the kitchen. Put everything away. Could NOT find the lid to my sugar crock. Looked high and low. Finally put the crock back in the pantry and looked all around the kitchen again. I even looked in the trash can! I had a saucer in my hand to put on the crock for a lid...

See the first post for today below...I had a hard day at school...

Finished product...minus a few.

Since these weren't chocolate...how about some eye candy?!

No, drat it! I did not take this photo.

I cruised blogs a bit earlier this evening and noticed someone was showing off their cookbooks. Why not?! My pitifully small collection is located on a bookshelf in Sam's office - right off the kitchen. When we bought the house and moved in, he questioned me about MY bookshelf in HIS office. shoulder shrug Either in his office or in our dining room. ;o)

I truly drool while perusing this cookbook!

What's sad, is I think my cookbook collection is starting to rival yours, even after pawning off the 70's Southern Living set...

Ducky, But you know that I generally use the same recipes over and over...family favorites and all that. BTW, be checking your mail again. You are going to add two more cookbooks to your collection.

Love you!

Did you see I was also making cookies - but mine are peanut butter with chocolate. I also love those scoops, which I use for my chocolate chip cookes. They look so uniform when made with the scoop and it's just fun to use a "tool". I write all over my cookbooks - who likes what, things I changed to the original recipe, etc. I also have a small box crammed full of recipe cards for family recipes.
