Rule of the Thumb – Refrain from eating too much sweets

The title of my blog post is kinda catchy J Well this one applies to me – someone with a sweet tooth. 

I love cookies just like my kids so I made some peanut butter cookies for them few days ago.

This is what I did:

I cream one cup of peanut butter which is something I bought from my neighbor which was made locally and I’m happy because the peanut taste is strong which makes me think that it’s made with pure peanuts unlike those peanut butter you could buy from groceries.

I cream it together with one cup of softened butter, half cup of sugar and half cup of honey which is a good alternate for sugar.  I believe it’s a healthier alternative for sugar – however I would like my kids to love this sweet treat so I have added some of it.

On a mixing bowl, I combined it with an egg, followed by a cup of sifted all-purpose flour, a pinch of salt, ¾ teaspoon of baking powder, and ½ teaspoon of baking soda.

I have added some amount of all-purpose flour until a nice dough was made.  Some people are putting it on the refrigerator but in my case – I didn’t.

I roll the dough into smaller balls and put on a tray with baking sheet.  Each ball was flatten with a fork for a better looking cookie which creates crisscross pattern.

Cookies are baked in preheated oven which is set at 200 degrees Celsius for about ten minutes until cookies turned brown. 

You could really smell the peanuty flavor from the oven.  Such aroma is good for someone who loves to bake.  Baking is a hobby that I wanna explore more.

Some of those are topped with chocolate tiny pieces.  Some are also sprinkling it with peanuts, cashew nuts or almonds.
