peanut butter sugar cookies!

{with halloween-y jimmies!}
failure earned a new definition with my attempted dumpling costume. what i was going for was essentially an upside down bed sheet ghost, where my legs would go through the eye holes and everything would meet up at the top and be tied neatly around my neck. more of a shumai than a guotie, if you catch my drift. instead i got a big fat spit ball... and a frowny face.
so i made peanut butter cookies. they're really tasty and easy. here are the clues:
with a mixer, combine 4 tbs softened butter 4 tbs peanut butter 1 c sugar. add 1 large egg + 1 tspn vanilla
in another bowl, combine 2 c flour + 1/2 tspn baking powder + a pinch of salt {if you're using unsalted peanut butter, up the salt}
combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.
divide into two rolls, 1.5 inches in diameter, roll in jimmies!
wrap in cling wrap and freeze while you watch one episode of revenge, or for like 45 minutes.
slice into 3/4 inch discs, and bake at 325, preferably on a pizza stone, for ten-ish minutes.
eat them all immediately!!!!

At least you tried :o) I didn't even come up with a costume this year! I love that you call sprinkles jimmies! Your cookies look yummmy... this morning I mixed some peanut butter in with my regular smoothie. I was inspired by a peanut butter & jelly smoothie I had had at a restaurant in Portland called Laughing Planet. Happy Halloween!
