It's the second-last day of the spring school holidays here, and we've been busy with play dates (so much fun for me too, as it's too long between catch-ups for us Mums too), sports camp/classes, walks, arts and crafts, general outdoor play and so on. This week's gymnastics sports camp is getting them pretty tired, so when they asked to go out for afternoon tea today, I didn't really fancy it. Instead we went home and whipped up some super delicious double chocolate chip peanut butter cookies.
But that will take ages, you might think. Well, kinda but not really, and it was much more fun and we knew exactly what we were eating. Mini-1 retired to the couch with her tablet computer and Mini-2 and I got started.
Anyway, back to the cookies...
We chose to do just small cookies, with a spoon and knife for skill and cleanliness. We managed to get 40 small mounds of dough out of our mix and popped them in the oven. A scant 12 minutes later we had hot cookie heaven!!
I couldn't resist and tasted one just moments later - oh my!! So so good, crisp and crunchy, just the way I like them. When the kids came through, one had the great idea of sandwiching them with cookies and cream ice-cream to make a Choc Chip cookie Ice-cream Sandwich - oh yes please!
