TWD: Peanut Butter Crisscrosses
Sorry, Mr. Piggy, tell all of your sugary friends that the peanut butter cookies are all gone.
Because these Peanut Butter Crisscrosses were darn-near as good as my favorite recipe, my grandma's. Maybe even on par with hers. (I can't say "better" out of respect for my grand-mum, bless her dear departed soul.)
Thanks to Jasmine of Jasmine Cuisine, who selected them for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe.
I baked them only for as long as called for and they were delicious and soft, just the way I like them.
It was a busy holiday weekend, with cookie-baking falling on the heels of some fondant critter-making. I made these little guys for my friend to put on her two-year old's birthday cake.
May I present Mr. Pooch,
Sir Wrinkly Nose,
Mr Tiger (as opposed to Mr. Striped Cat),
and finally, Mr. Mon-kay.
I wish I would have done their eyes differently... maybe some white around the black. Oh well, I'm guessing little birthday boy didn't mind.
OK, that's that! If you'd like to see the recipe, please visit Jasmine's blog or find yourself a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book, "Baking, From my Home to Yours".
