Today was a rainy, blustery kind of day … so I stayed inside and did what any 20 year old girl (lately I’ve been wondering if I should start referring to myself as woman?) would do – baked cookies. I’ve had a strong hankering for peanut butter cookies for a few days, so I was happy to oblige the hankering, and I must say my family is also pleased with the results of my baking explorations!

When I make peanut butter cookies I always make them in two ways because my grandmothers made them different ways … and thus my parents like different “styles”. I’m partial to parts of both, so I gladly make both kinds. Today I was feeling extra ambitious, so i tried a few other variations as well.

1. Crinkle top/soft cookies rolled in sugar: My dad’s favourite (I’m a sucker for things completely rolled in sugar…)

2. Chewy+crispy/criss cross top cookies with sugar on top: My mother’s favourite (the criss cross thing just always makes me think “peanut butter cookies” …)

3. Hershey’s Drop: They were starting to get stale, and I was inspired by those kisses ones.

4. Surprise: there are M&Ms in there, I promise. and the nest ones have them clearly visible 🙂

Overall, I think it was a rather successful cookie making adventure in the kitchen. Hopefully my family & my guests on Saturday will enjoy them!
