Yes, it has been a very long time since I've posted. Our family has been overseas with my husband while he works. We are very excited to be home. God bless America!!! I'll be posting a few Brazilian recipes and other posts in the near future.
Just being back in the states at a grocery store where I can read labels and find familiar ingredients feels like a gift. I will never under appreciate my Kitchen Aid mixer again! I made some chocolate chip cookies there by hand (after finally finding baking soda and the real butter). They weren't bad but definitely not as good as the ones I make in my own kitchen. The quality of appliances there is poor compared to here in the states and things cost about 3-4 times as much as do they here.
I've got a lot of peanut butter in my cupboards so I wanted to bake. Peanut butter cookies are my favorite. I found this recipe with the addition of oatmeal that I thought sounded really great. They are!! I also added some nestle morsels to half the dough since my kids love 'em. I think I'll always make these now instead of just plain oatmeal. Give 'em a try.
I doubled the recipe with great results.
