It's healthy, isn't it?

Well, we didn't make Battenberg, we made Peanut Butter Cookies instead. I say 'we', because my friend Lauren came round, who is a long-standing baking freind of mine. You should of tasted our Halloween Fairy Cakes. They really were quite stunning. I mean, they tasted stunning. They didn't look too good.

Anyway, we baked. And we baked GOOD cookies. I would love to give you the recipie, but it's only on paper, and I can't be bothered to type it out. Google it. It involves 6 tablespoons of peanut butter, no eggs, some flour, some butter, some castor sugar and vanilla essence. Although not neccissarily in that order.

First we stirred:

Then we added milk: (lots of it)

Then we panicked a bit, because it looked like this, and that didn't look too good. However, it did taste good, and was 100% safe to eat raw, because it had no eggs. I always worry that I might get salmonella when I lick out a cake bowl. Then Loz & I washed our hand very thoroughly (You can't be too sure with all this swine flu) and balled the dough into little patties. Into the ovens for 25mns and....
Well, I don't have a picture to show you of that, because we got quite caught up in the eating of them. I'll suffice to say they were good.
And - we comforted ourselves with this thought - Peanut Butter's good fat. So really, it was a healthy thing to make.
