Cooking and baking is really interesting, especially when trying out new recipes. The girls’ discipleship at Ebenezer was spent learning how to make Peanut Cookies with Marlene Poe. We could probably call this “Baking God’s Way” – Baking on time, to a very HIGH standard, with no wastage and with definite joy! What fun!!
Marlene Poe all ready to bake
Peanut Butter Cookies:
½ cup baking margarine
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
Method: Cream the margarine and peanut butter together. Add the sugars to the mixture and mix well before adding the egg and vanilla. Beat until fluffy.
Baking in progress
Mix together in a separate bowl
1½ cup plain flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture
Shape dough into balls (1”) and place them on a greased baking sheet 2 – 3” apart. Press flat with a fork.
Bake for 12 – 15 minutes at 180 degrees centigrade.
The biscuits were baked in a dover stove or wooden oven at Ebenezer and came out close to PERFECT. Well done to the girls.
Finished product! Biscuits galore!
Give it a try. It's a winner.
