Classic and Simple: Peanut Butter Cookies #CulinaryCam


These peanut butter cookies were a family affair when we filmed this for the Culinary Cam YouTube channel. Here's a behind the scenes shot as they heckled me for making Peanut Butter Miso Cookies. Sometimes you just need to go back to the basics, right? And I love that these can be made in about 30 minutes with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.

Watch the video on my channel...or here...

Ingredients makes approximately 20 cookies


  • 2/3 cup organic peanut butter (I used crunchy)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup organic dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/3 cup organic granulated sugar plus more for rolling
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 cups flour 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Also needed: baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon mat; cookie scoop, optional; fork


Procedure

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Whisk together the flour and baking soda in a small mixing bowl. Place 1/2 cup granulated sugar in a separate bowl for rolling the cookies later. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and peanut butter. Add in the two kinds of sugars and beat again until lightened and fluffy. Beat in the egg until well-combined. Fold in the flour mixture and use a wooden spoon or your hands until the dough just comes together in a ball. 

Use a cookie scoop to easily portion out the dough into consistent sizes. Or just use your hands and pinch off walnut-sized pieces. 

Roll the dough into smooth balls, then roll them in granulated sugar to coat the outside. Place the balls on a cookie sheet, approximately 2-inches apart.


Use the tines of a fork to press a hatch-mark design into the top of the cookies and flatten them slightly.


Place the sheet in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. The cookies will be browned and still soft to the touch, but they will harden as they cool. Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

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!

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an
