Gloomy days and baking

Fall is definitely here, and warm, sunny days are keeping company with gloomy, rainy ones. The gray days have me thinking--not too happily--about winter, but I find baking can usually lift my spirits. After seeing Heather's post yesterday, I knew I had to give these peanut butter cookies a try.

Cooling


I actually made two batches of these flourless cookies, not being too happy with the appearance of the first one. I used natural peanut butter and dark brown sugar the first time around, and the texture and color just weren't very appealing. After switching to my usual peanut butter and light brown sugar, the result was much better.

Afternoon delights


These cookies are delicious and would be perfect for anyone with gluten allergies. If you try them, pop on over to Heather's blog and tell her "thank you" for an easy, delicious recipe!

baking...the human's way of getting through winter. I grew up making these little gems with my mom...only we did one chocolate 'star' in the middle. your shots take me right back...

oh and I love your 'old' camera photos. are you having images put onto disc or scanning them? the color spectrum that comes through is so retro and fun...

Those will be perfect for Passover. Did you use all light brown sugar? or 1/2 cup light brown and 1/2 cup regular? (I've got the recipe printed and ready to go.)
