I had such a lovely post that I was going to put up tonite but I came home to find that my laptop, camera, grandma's jewellery, playstation 3 and many other things had been stolen from my house whilst I was at work. I have never been burgled before and it is without a doubt one of the most horrible feelings to know strangers have been in your home and stolen your belongings. So for now I don't know when I will be posting again as both my camera and laptop are gone, bastards.

Well it certainly has been a few weeks since I was last here, I didn't realise it was so long! I have spent two of those weeks in Cornwall hoping for warm sun and rock pooling but instead got rain rain rain non-stop for nearly the whole trip, this is without a doubt the worst summer I have experienced in the 27 years I have lived on this earth! A couple of days ago we had a tiny bit of sunshine so I sat in the garden and made my peanut butter cookie dough until of course it started raining again around half an hour later, sigh.....
25g Crunchy peanut butter
25g smooth peanut butter
25g caster sugar
25g Muscadova sugar
1 Egg beaten
100g plain flour
1/2tsp baking powder
Very simple recipe, just beat all your ingredients together to form a dough.
If the dough is a bit sticky put it in the fridge for half so it's easier to work with.
Grab walnut sized pieces of dough and press with a fork, make sure you leave enough space in between as they will spread out when cooking.
I crumbled some muscadova sugar on the top of my cookies for extra crunch and sweetness.
I baked my cookies for 15-20 mins on gas mark 6, they still had slightly chewy centres which I love.
Cookies and milk, American thing I know but it really does work!
