Got peanut butter in todays grocery shopping. Actually , every week , I buy something new , different to try out new recipes from. This week its peanut butter. And making cookies with the crunchy peanut butter for my lil toddler! I already know , that a peanut butter sandwich packed for tiffin would come back home untouched. But cookies is something I am pretty sure , would be a hit for my kid! Cookies are always associated with cakes , we always say” Cakes and Cookies”. There’s an interesting reason behind it . Cookies were invented by accident. A small amount of cake batter was used to test the oven temperatures before baking a big cake. These little test cakes were called “koekje” in Dutch ,meaning little cake. And thats how the name “cookie”. (source:http://www.kitchenproject.com) So lets bake our koejke..oops cookies!

  1. Preheat oven to 180 deg celcius. Beat the butter,peanut butter and sugar together using a spatula ,till creamy and fluffy. Add vanilla essence and mix. Gently add maida and mix. Knead using hand and make small balls of the dough and flatten them slig
  2. Bake them for 10 -15 mins, till browned at the edges. Do not over bake. Cool them on a rack and transfer into an airtight jar. Crumbly, sweet ,savoury and melt in the mouth!! And so quick and easy! A must try!

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
