On this second day, very relaxing day of the year we ended up watching the kids baking championship. These 8-12 year olds that some can barely see over their counter, others munching on more of what they bake then they end up having to serve. There was a PB&J wrench thrown in the middle of the challenge and they had to come up with a third item that included PB&J in the time they had left.
I made the comment that they were making me want to bake. I hadn’t made my peanut butter cookies in quite a few years. But since I used to make them almost every week for the farmers market it came back quickly.
Now what do we do with 3.5 dozen peanut butter and peanut butter and jelly cookies. After a couple we were done. Guess we’ll be taking some to friends or freezing them.
These kids are amazing and such better bakers then I am. I know with experience and increased problem solving skills they will be amazing. At that age, I had zero idea of what I wanted to do as a grown up. The closest I came to these kids is I did have own chocolate chip cookie recipe with my “secret” ingredient. My not wanting to tell anyone ensured I “got” to bake them all the time.
