Chewy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

The Dish
**~* *~* *
This is a recipe I modified from a recipe I found at "Heart Healthy Cooking". The cookies are nice and chewy and not too sweet. I only made 18 rather than 30, as suggested by the original recipe.

All purpose white flour - 6 oz
Whole wheat flour - 6 oz
Quick cooking rolled oats - 1 cup
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp

Light brown sugar - 3/4 cup
Butter - 6 tbsp = 3/4 of a stick
Skim milk - 1/4 cup = 2 tbsp
Creamy peanut butter - 3 tbsp

1- Mix the first 5 dry ingredients and set aside in a bowl.
2- Whipped butter, sugar, milk, and peanut butter until well mixed.
3 - Add in the dry ingredients and mix it well
4- Make small walnut size ball of dough with your hand and a small spoon.
5- Place the dough ball on a greased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.
6- Gently press the dough with the back of a fork.
7- Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 F for about 20 minutes.
8- Make about 20 cookies.

The Ceramic

I was lucky enough to have gone to Kaori's open studio at Wandsworth, London last summer. I never tire of simple glazes on understated ceramic forms. The patina of the clay comes through on the edges and gives the wares extra dimensions.
