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.

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
