Now that it’s October, I’ve been willing it to feel like fall more and more each day. The daylight is getting slimmer, I pulled fall clothes from the attic, my house is decorated for fall, but it seems like a façade given the warm weather. This week, I had enough of the summer weather and decided to make my favorite fall cookies with the babies. Peanut butter. I’m not sure why exactly peanut butter makes me think of fall, but it does. I pulled my family cookbook down, searching for the recipe, but no avail. I searched online for a recipe and thought I found a good one. It called for butter, brown sugar, peanut butter, and milk among other things. It wasn’t long before I realized I poured the last of the milk into Rylin’s sippy cup. Peanut butter cookie making plans foiled! Then, I remembered my mom making three ingredient peanut butter cookies. It seems crazy, but she always made perfect peanut butter cookies so I gave them a try.
To make 2 ½ dozen cookies, mix
1. 2 cups sugar
2. 2 cups peanut butter
3. 2 eggs
Scoop the dough out with a cookie scoop then press with a fork, making a crosswise pattern.
Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.The aroma that spilled from my oven was delightful! I made these cookies on Tuesday and as of today, there are none left. What is your favorite fall dessert?
