Honey Of A Peanut Butter Loaf

Pretty ain't it!

Pretty ain’t it!

Well, if this had went according to Plan A, you could have been sampling a taste of your own today! This is another one of our disasters or almost disaster that happened yesterday! Husband wanted to get the north forty of the property mowed before the rain and according to radar, it seemed to be somewhat far off and so he was off, and I mean that in more ways than one, love ya honey! Now since he had checked radar and all was clear on the western front, I figured I’d stay busy making this bread. With the batter almost complete, BAM, lightening struck really really close to home. Worried about him first and my bread second, for a second there it was a toss up…ha ha!

I stuck my head out to see if he was on his way back to shelter; sure enough he was heading for the barn. Okay he’s safe, now onto my bread………. It wasn’t a little over 5 minutes in the oven when the power starting flickering continuously and then the worst happened, IT WENT DARK and then it stayed DARK for 2 hours! What to do? I pulled the bread out of the oven and the top was just starting to set up. ?!#* Kenny suggested I stick in the frig and I decided to just leave it out.

With power restored, I turned the oven back on and with fingers crossed, I threw it back in for the amount of time per the recipe. After said time, I checked and it looked a little funky, but it tested done or so I thought. Out of the oven, cool in the pan for a few minutes and now onto a wire rack to finish cooling. This is when it really got so bad that it was actually funny!

Well..it still tasted pretty darn good!

Well..it still tasted pretty darn good!

You see, I had tested it for it’s doneness and all seemed fine, NOT! My guess was that the top was so nice and crunchy from the double exposure to the oven that when I inserted my tester, the top being so crispy wiped all the uncooked dough clean. Upon flipping it over to the rack, the raw dough came gushing out from under the nice cooked top of the bread, oops! We quickly tried to amend the sitiation (and yes I meant to spell it that way) and threw it back into the oven without it’s top and finished cooking it. It came out a little funky looking, but I have to say the flavor was there and it will still be enjoyed with coffee or topped off with some nice homemade ice cream! Next time I bake, there will be blue skies above and absolutely no hint of rain coming down on our parade…………

Granddaughters Peanut Butter Cookies

Before I get to these yummy cookies, I have another story to share! Yesterday my dog was barking at the sliding glass doors at something and I figured it was just my alpha male cat Zorro, that she doesn’t like, NOT! Well, living in the woods you just never know what awaits your very eyes and this was a new one on me. It appeared to be a very large and fluffy Siamese cat with a short tail or maybe a large rabbit with very short ears. I was on the phone to my sister at the time and I went “What the Hell is that!” Of course she replied with “I don’t know, I can’t See it you DoDo!” Before I could get the camera, one of our cats went tearing after it which left me staring at an animal hoofing it, (or maybe kind of like hopping would be a better term),  for the woods. I went in to share the story with Kenny and in conclusion and after doing some research on the computer, we decided it must have been a small bobcat! We had seen tracks here before and my neighbor has seen them in her back yard, so we know they’re here but had just never seen one in person! Another species to add to our list of visitors in our back yard and people wonder why we never go outside without our guns in reach!!!! And now for the cookie recipe:)

Into the oven..My little pretty's!

Into the oven..My little pretty’s!

My granddaughter Chey just shared this very simple recipe with me this weekend and I just had to take a stab at it with my granddaughter’s vague description of how to make them. She had the ingredients down pat but was unsure of how big or thick to make them, if the original recipe called for greasing the pan as she does and most important, the temperature of the oven! God bless her, as cooking is not one of her fortes. But I did struggle through and found it to be one of the quickest and easiest cookie recipe I have ever made! I did have some peanuts in my cupboard along with some chocolate chips to top them off and with a very skeptical husband by my side, he had to admit they were pretty damn good! There is also a variation to the recipe and, that is, you can substitute 1/2 of honey for the sugar and that would have been the one I would have chosen if I didn’t have honey on my shopping list!

Need a LARGE glass of milk or a BIG cup of coffee?

Granddaughters Peanut Butter Cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar (or may substitute ½ cup of honey)
  • 1 cup of peanut butter (I used smooth and creamy but may try them with crunchy next)
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients well with a wooden spoon, dough will be stiff and crumbly.
  2. Take by large teaspoonfuls, make into balls and place on lightly greased baking sheet leaving enough room to press them out with a fork. (They can be fairly close as they do not spread out as they cook).
  3. Top with a peanut or a chocolate chip and bake in a 350 degree oven for 7 to 9 minutes depending on how large you make them, DO NOT overcook.
  4. Let cool on cookie sheet until they have partially set and remove to wire rack to cool completely.

 

Can’t wait to make these again for the holidays……………enjoy!
