It is the most wonderful time of the year! My absolute favorite season.
Remember Christ is the only reason for the season.
My savior, Our Savior is born! The reason why this season is so festival, joyful and full of giving and receiving. It is because God gave His son, Christ the Lord.
He shall be called Emanuel, God in us! May your Christmas be Christ centered as mine.
I been baking all kinds of cookies and bars, and I wanted share with you.
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus 1/3 cup for rolling
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup salted peanutes, roughly chopped
Adjust rack to center of oven and heat to 350° F. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
Form the dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Roll in the remaining sugar and place on a baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Using the back of a fork, gently press the cookies to form a crisscross pattern.
Bake 12 to 16 minutes or until just golden. Cool on racks.
