DIY & I've been baking....

Hello my loves, 

I hope that your weekend has been relaxing. 

I personally have only just stopped to sit down. Luke and I have been redecorating our bathroom. Gone is the purple area, its all white now. There is still another coat and glossing to do, but the room is certainly on its way! :) 







It's crazy what a bit of paint can do. The bathroom is already lighter and feels more spacious. There will be more on our DIY project later on. 

I am planning to make this home all decorated and cozy before Christmas. I hope to take you all on this journey with us! 


But as I teased earlier the week...... It's time to share my yummy and super quick and easy recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies!

I should point out that there is a video tutorial here .....




But for those of you like me that prefer the written method.....


First things first,  you will need an awesome cookie baking outfit. Sadly I didn't wear this top in the video :(

( I got it from Game and I'm beyond in love with it ) 



Ingredients needed : 

200g of peanut butter (smooth or crunchy is up to you) (I personally find using a little more makes them even sweeter ;)
175gs of Golden Caster Sugar 
1 large egg 


Before you do anything - Preheat the oven to 170 degrees / Gas Mark 4 & line a tray with greaseproof paper 

1) add the peanut butter and sugar to a bowl and mix together until it looks like the below (I'm using a plastic orange bowl as I was making different types of cookies and I thought this was a good visual way to avoid allergies) 




2) add the egg to make a dough. It's going to be sticker than a normal cookie dough due to the peanut butter so don't panic. 

3- take the dough and place small amounts of it on the baking paper. Make sure you leave some space between the cookies! (tip : use a wooden spoon and a metal one to do this step - its rather sticky)

4 - take a metal fork and push down on the dough to put it into a cookie shape.

5 - place in the oven and BAKE



6 - check on the cookies after 8- 10 mins. They should be golden brown around the outside but still slightly gooey in the middle. (Goo level depends on your preference! )

7 - take out of the oven and place on a cooling rack (although at this stage they are great to eat with ice cream (I'm told)



8 - enjoy! 


It's as easyyyyyyyy as that. 


I hope that this post / video is easy to follow! 

Feel free to leave your thoughts below! 

Thanks
