The weather has been so weird lately. One minute it's sunny, humid and intolerably hot and the next minute the sky breaks open and rain is falling for the next hour. And then the sun comes out again and it gets all hot and humid, again. That is not baking weather. At all.
And I feel like baking. I feel like having cake or cookies but the thought of the oven being on at 350F for more than an hour is just the thing to get me out of my baking mood. So I look at blogs and check out ice cream and sorbet recipes and I'm always missing one key ingredient. Why didn't I think of this when I made my shopping list last weekend?
OK, enough of this feeling sorry for myself. I made these peanut butter cookies a few weeks ago, with every intention of sharing them with you but other things had to be done and they've been patiently waiting their turn. I'm not usually a big fan of peanut butter in baked goods but peanut butter cookies are the exception.
Maybe it's the crispy, crunchy factor that I like in these or maybe it's the chocolate chips but in any case I like these a lot. So much that, I wish I had some right now. So much that I might brave a 350F oven for an hour or so. Oops, out comes the sun again... No, no baking for me today. Excuse me while I get my ice cream recipes out and go make a shopping list.
