Nutty Peanut Cookies

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

Many years ago—dating back to those good old college days, I chanced upon my then flatmate and up-to-now bestbuddy, preparing several batches of what looked like peanut cookies. Seeing that she wasn't reading any recipe, I thought she has been baking them ever since. But I was wrong. Instead of moist, chewy peanut cookies, what came out were flat, golden brown disks so hard that they could cause a concusion when thrown at someone's unfortunate head. If only my friend had followed this peanut cookie recipe from, she wouldn't have thrown so much money and effort making those discs instead of delectable peanut cookies.

¾ cup packed brown sugar
1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda

2.In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt, and soda.
3.Add to egg mixture, alternating with oil.
4.Put in the vanilla and peanuts last. Stir.
5.Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet.
6.Bake for 6-8 minutes at 375 degrees.
7.Serve with milk or any warm beverage of your choice.
