Cookies, Get Your Cookies Here!

Well, it’s been an interesting week. My older daughter had her bazaar today, which was my first view of how bazaar’s work in Japan. Fun. But, for the bazaar, I somehow got myself into volunteering to help out with the baking. So, Friday morning, there was me, my wife, and about thirty moms from my daughter’s school. And, I got to teach how to make peanut butter cookies and a few other goodies.

It went pretty well actually. Everyone seemed to have a good time and we made lots and lots of cookies and muffins. About 200 bags of goodies in fact. And, I’m proud to say, they sold out in fifteen minutes this morning. First empty table at the bazaar. We did good.

So, in case anyone would like to try them, here’s the peanut butter cookie recipe we used. Give it a shot. It’s very easy and very tasty. Someone could, I don’t know, make a batch and bring them to class to share with their favourite teacher. Just a thought.

Peanut Butter Cookies

Yields: 36 cookies

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt


バター   1/2カップ
ピーナツバター  1/2カップ
グラニュー糖   1カップ
卵   2個
バニラエッセンス   小1/2
薄力粉   1カップ
ベーキングパウダー   小1

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter, and sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt.

Stir into the peanut butter mixture.

Drop by rounded  spoonfuls onto the cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven.

Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
