These peanut butter cookies were a hit.
Especially among the men.
I guess they’re manly cookies?
I wanted to drizzle chocolate on them, but I was met with opposition. I guess that would make them less manly?
I don’t know– I still can’t figure it out.
(On a totally random note…
why won’t WordPress let me change my font color anymore?
That is kinda stressful, because I was used to blue font.
And stress can kill, you know. It nearly killed me yesterday, but that’s another story.
OK, that’s the end of my randomness…)
The original recipe has these cookies rolled in sugar.
I tried a few like that, but once again– opposition.
Not manly enough either, it seems.
So… here they are, just peanut buttery goodness– no frills.
