Cookie Week Finale / Peanut Butter Nummies

Cookie Week - Day 5

  Cookie week has been so great! I wish I could have had you all to my house for a cookie tasting party. 

  On a side note, I have been baking & photographing all these cookies for about a month. I've also been brushing up on my photography skills in the last month. If you look back over this week's posts, you'll probably be able to tell which photos were taken at the beginning of the cookie photo journey & which were taken towards the end. I'm happy to see improvement in my photography in the past month.

  I'm saving my absolute favourite cookie for last. My Peanut Butter Nummies are amazing, if I do say so myself. This is such a moist, chewy peanut butter cookie. No dry, crumbly business here.

Peanut Butter Nummies
makes 2 dozen

3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup shortening
1-1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
3 Tbsp. milk
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1-3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 375º F.

Cream first 6 ingredients until smooth. Combine dry ingredients & add to peanut butter mixture. Blend. Drop by teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool slightly, then remove to wire rack to cool completely.


Well, that wraps up my first cookie week! Perhaps I'll make it an annual affair?? What do you think? I'm definitely considering doing a Cookie Week: Christmas Edition come December. Then I can get out my fancier recipes. I'd better get baking so I'm ready in time! Thanks so much for joining me. I love my bloggy friends.

Enjoy your day!

  1. This last picture is my favorite one! Up close and personal with the Peanut Butter Nummie!

  2. I just posted a pic on FB of what my kitchen looked like when I was doing this "shoot". An extra lamp so I didn't have to use my flash & fancy hand towels as a backdrop... 

  3. Yum! Just made them, and they rock!

  4. Happy story - I was not the only one who thought they rocked! I took some to a party, and they were a huge hit! Perhaps now more traffic will be coming to Silver Boxes... :)


Thanks for taking the time to comment. Your comments make my day!!
