Spicy Peanut Butter Cookies for #HandCraftedEdibles


In an effort to make all of my holiday gifts this year, my blogging friends and I are sharing recipes for hand-crafted edibles. Over the course of twelve weeks, we've been sharing recipes that you can make at home to give to friends and loved ones, or things to serve at holiday parties.

It's hard to believe we're at week 11. We hope you'll follow along for inspiration. You can find out more information, including the schedule: here.

This week, we are bringing you inspiration for your holiday cookie trays. Have you started with you holiday baking yet?

Thanksgiving weekend, my Kitchen Elves and I baked four different kinds of cookies. So. Much. Fun.



Our #HandCraftedEdibles Cookie Tray...

Next week - week 12 and our final week - is all about wrapping. How to label those jarred mixes. How to mail cookies safely. How to....

My Cookie...
Last year I was inspired by the Chocolate Chili Dipped Sriracha Peanut Butter Cookies that I received from Awesome with Sprinkles for the #FBCookieSwap. Click to read more about that event: here.

My Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf liked them so much that he asked if Heidi could send some for his birthday dinner party. Ummmm...no. But she did send the recipe. Ours is slightly adapted. I skipped the dipping and I used some homemade hot sauce from a friend.

Ingredients makes approximately 30 cookies
  • 1 stick (1/2 C) butter, softened
  • 3/4 C creamy peanut butter
  • 1 C organic granulated sugar
  • 2 T hot sauce (homemade or some kind of Sriracha)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 t pure vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 C flour
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 3/4 t baking soda
  • more organic granulated sugar, for rolling

Procedure
In a mixing bowl, cream together butter, peanut butter and sugar. Slowly add in hot sauce, egg, and vanillaextract. Beat until well-combined.

In larger mixing bowl, blend together flour, baking powder, and baking soda.

Gently fold flour mixture into peanut butter mixture until completely moistened. Press it into a ball, then let chill for at least an hour.

During the last 15 minutes of chilling, preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Scoop a tablespoon-sized piece of dough and roll into a ball. Dip ball into granulated sugar and place onto cookie sheet. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern. 


Bake for 9 to 11 minutes - or just until the cookies begin to brown. You don't want to over-bake them as they harden while they cool.

  1. These sound delicious Cam. I would never have thought of adding hot sauce to my peanut butter cookies.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
