Our daughter has decided this summer that she likes to “experiment.” So she’s decided that making up her own cookie recipes is a great way to explore science!
Last week she and I, with inspiration from a church cookbook from Rockdale Lutheran Church near Madison, made chocolate peanut butter cookies. Here’s the recipe:
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
1 t. vanilla
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs. Add vanilla. Mix in melted chocolate. Add peanut butter and mix. Add flour, one cup at a time, and salt and baking soda. Drop cookies on greased cookie sheet and bake for 13-14 minutes.
Tonight, we added chocolate frosting. We used 1/4 cup butter, melted. 1 T cocoa power. About 2 cups powered sugar. 1-2 t milk.
They are pretty and you only need one!
