Teaching Cooking

I have taught basic cooking to my seven children and to classes of elementary children. When my youngest daughter wanted to learn, I found that taking the recipes and making them into a step-by-step format made it easier for her, so here is a blog to hopefully make cooking easier for the beginner.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Raisin Cookies

While preparing to leave China, I found I had a lot of oatmeal, peanut butter and raisins to use up before I could go or else throw them out.  Not wanting to do that, I found a recipe for Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies and changed some ingredients and added raisins.  David has declared it his NEW favorite cookie!

Cream together:
1 cup butter, softened
1 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup peanut butter

After it is mixed well add:
 2 eggs

Mix the eggs in well and then add:
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

Mix this all well and then add:
1 cup of quick oats
1 cup of raisins

When it is all mixed really well, drop by teaspoonfuls to a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.  Let them sit on the cookie sheet for a minute before you remove them to cool.  Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
