I love the tradtitional Peanut Butter Cookie recipe:
  • 1 1/4 cups flour, sift or stir before measuring
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg

Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder; set aside. Cream shortening, peanut butter, and sugars; beat in vanilla and egg. Stir in flour mixture, blending well. Shape mixture into 3/4-inch balls; place on greased baking sheets. Flatten each cookie with the tines of a fork; dip fork in flour periodically to keep it from sticking to the peanut butter cookie dough.
Bake peanut butter cookies at 375° for about 10 to 12 minutes.

Wow, 18 jars of peanut butter!!  I thought I had a lot on hand and I have 7.  I got them when they were on sale for 99¢.  These are the normal 18 oz size, but depending on what you get, some have shrunk to 16 or 15.5.  I don't get the low fat or the other odd stuff.  Just the normal peanut butter is the best.  I figure if they take out fat they'll probably add sugar.

We like peanut butter at our house.  I have about 8 jars in my pantry.  I've been trying to stock up before they raise the price.

One of my favorite peanut butter items is for breakfast.  I take a whole grain tortilla, spread peanut butter on it then roll up a banana in it and eat it.  It is very good.  Sometimes, I use Nutella instead of peanut butter.

The kids love good old peanut butter crackers.

Here are some facts about peanut butter:
It helps prevent the risk of cancer, coronary heart diseases, cardiovascular diseases, gallstones, high blood sugar, and high cholesterol levels. It consists of different nutrients which is an excellent source of magnesium, potassium, and phosphorous. It also contains Vitamins (B3 & E), best source of dietary fiber, protein, arginine, and folate.For every year, American citizens spend approximately $ 800 million on their peanut butter.

I  just Love anything Peanut Butter.
I would like the Buckeye bar recipe. Pretty Please!!
To think we are a few weeks into the month and I had no idea that it was National Peanut Butter Lover's Month.

I think my favorite right now is Peanut Butter Pie. But then again Buckeye candy is good...Peanut Butter Cups are good...A spoon full of peanut butter is good...Chocolate and peanut butter are great...just can't think of anything that peanut butter doesn't taste good with..

Peanut Butter Cups:

1/2 cup (125 grams) creamy peanut butter

2 tablespoons (28 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup (55 grams) confectioners (powdered or icing) sugar

Chocolate Coating

9 ounces (255 grams) semi sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

9 ounces (255 grams) milk chocolate, coarsely chopped

1 tablespoon (10 grams) shortening

Peanut Butter Cups: Line 36 miniature muffin cups with paper liners.

Place the peanut butter, unsalted butter, and salt in a microwaveable bowl, and heat in the microwave for about one minute or just until soft, but not melted (check and stir the ingredients every 20 seconds). Stir in the confectioners sugar.

Melt the chocolates and shortening in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water.

Drop a teaspoon of the melted chocolate into each of the paper lined miniature muffin cups. Top with a scant teaspoon of peanut butter mixture. Then top with another teaspoon of melted chocolate. Refrigerate until set. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Makes about 36 peanut butter cups. 





These cups are amazing!

Dan Dan Noodles

This cold noodle salad has been served, over the years, in some of my favorite Chinese & Thai reastaurants.

It's an especially nice summer dish ; nearly acomplete meal in one & makes a complete meal w/ the optonal adition of egg rolls, or other appetizers from your local Chinese restaurant ; or check out your local grocery store: ours sells Chinese style ROAST PPORK & terryaki chicken OR beef, already cooked (just heat & eat).

Serve on lettuce(shreds) lined plates or add a fresh Asian salad:

For salad,Layer:

lettuce, sliced green or chopped sweet onion ; drained pineapple chunks, Almond slices or slivers or chopped peanuts & canned crispy Chinese noodles scattered over the top.I like a ginger soy(bottled ) dressing but your favorite dressing might  be fine too.

Iced OR hot tea; beer or tropical punch & a fresh fruit plate/cup(s) complete a tastey summertime meal .

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

serves 4-6

8 oz linguini or spaghetti.

1/3C peanut butter(your choice of smooth or chunky;but super chunky gives the best crunch & texture (I use reduced fat PB & add chopped peanuts

1/2C hot water(reserved from draining cooked pasta

1/2-1tsp soy sauce(to taste)

small pinch up to 1/4tsp "crushed" hot pepper flakes; to taste.Start w/ less & increase, to taste, each time you make this .Youl;; need less flakes w/ HOT salsa)

Optional: 1/4C mild to HOT salsa (for Thai style noodle salad).Use your personal favorite type of salsa.

Optional: 2C cooked chicken meat, cooled & shredded

1 Euro cuke: washed & sliced ; peel if you must(I do not) into very thin circles. I use a 1mm slicing disc in my food processor

 

 

 

 

DIRECTIONS:

Best to start THE DAY BEFORE you plan to serve this salad, to give the salad time to firm up

Line a Qt size (makes unmolding easier) mixing bowl w/ plastic wrap& set lined bowl aside.

Cook pasta choice , al dente& drain; reserve pasta in strainer/collander.Reserve 1/2C boiling liquid for use in making PB sauce

In wok or 10" skilet; put HOT water; PB, soy sauce & salsa ( if using)

Heatover med-low stirring till comes to a boil& PB disolves.

Adjust seasoning, to taste w/ soy sauce, pepper flakes & salsa

Place drained pasta into sauce& stir/toss till all pasta is covered w/ sauce.

Add shredded chicken, if using & toss in to mix evenly.

Let rest 10-20 minutes to cool [a little bit] & transfer pasta(w/sauce& chicken) into lined bowl.

Tap bowl down on counter top or table to pack contents together firmly[ makes unmolding easier]

Cover & refrigerate at least6-8 5 hours (overnight ).

To serve: Line a serving plate w/ shredded lettuce & invert bowl onto plate, over lettuce.

Remove bowl& plastic wrap.

Arrange cucumber slices around mounded pasta dome & serve or use plastic wrap to cover & refrigerate salad while you prepare other dishes.

Serve; using tongs or two forks w/ other dishes & beverage choice(s)

Cover & refrigerate any leftovers for another day(lasts several days if lept well chilled )
