Your kids will be very impressed
I was going through that cool new app snap guide and I came across a guide to easy peanut butter cookies. I looked at the ingredients and was very surprised, I had all the ingredients! I decided to make them for my kids as a fun snack when they got home from school. The guide was super easy to follow. (Recipe: Mix the ingredients from the middle picture below and cook at 350 degrees for ten minutes. Rotate the cookies after five minutes in the oven). Don’t forget to sprinkle sugar on top and then crease with a fork!
My kids loved the cookies. I think the recipe was super easy and really good.
Making these cookies made me think that it would be good to have a list of “staple” items that you always have on hand for baking. I found a great list on browneyedbaker.com
The good news is that you probably have almost all of these. If you are missing a couple, pick them up at the grocery store so when the Thanksgiving and Christmas baking seasons come around, you are ready! Keep scrolling down after the list to see a super cool item that would be great as a gift!!!!
