Sweet cookies with the mild taste of peanuts. And a little bit healthy because with oats 🙂 In original recipe used sugar for me was too much, so I used only white sugar and still for me cookies were too sweet. But my children ate have of cookies at once and hubby said that sweetness of cookies it just right.
My butter was cold, so I melted it. Also because I used less sugar, the dough was stronger, so I formed cookies with wet hands – the form was nicer. And also because the dough was harder, cookies didn’t spread widely and they were not very thin.

Once great grandparents brought from the farmer market home made cottage cheese for there beloved grandchildren. But the cheese wasn’t so delicious as everyone wanted so for a long time it sat quietly in the corner of a fridge and waited. But the day has come when this cheese was used for unsweetened cookies, that tasted something between cookies and baked cottage pancakes. Everyone was happy – children, because they got tasty snack, cottage cheese – because at last he was useful, and parents – that didn’t throw away spend money.
My kids like to play with homemade playdough. Every weekend they play in the kitchen while I’m preparing something tasty. But one time when I saw my kids sitting and smiling with green mouths, I understood that something was wrong 🙂 So I made decision – prepare edible playdough. The recipes was selected long time ago, but time to prepare it came only now. It’s very easy to make and tasty to eat – if you like peanuts and sweetness. But don’t do my mistake, don’t prepare full amount, devide in half or even more. We ate a lot, but it still is on my pantry. Now it hardened, but we break some chunks and eat like candies. After a great play you can make small balls and dip in the melted chocolate – and you will have great candies.
Weekend 🙂 and at last I had time carefully to look what’s in a fridge 🙂 And my eyes saw sour milk that will spoil very quickly if I won’t do anything. So I remembered not so long ago published Bea sour milk muffins. There was no time to think – just do. And now I’m sitting happy and satisfied with a cup of tea:)
I don’t know why but I look at baking with dried fruits suspiciously. But now I’m ashamed… I baked these muffins and ate half of them all by my self… Sour milk gave the taste of cottage cheese. Strange, but we like it 🙂
These cookies are universal 🙂 I baked them several times. And one time, when I found out that we don’t have nor apple butter, nor raisins, nor nuts, I improvised and cookies we make with plum jam and poppy seeds. They turned out grate too 🙂 So I decided that these cookies are perfect when I have some jam leftovers. By the way, I used unsweetened apple jam, so if you use sweet one, then I suggest to add 50 ml less sugar.
