Show me your face and your Peanut butter Cookies

While I was browsing a few blogs today I found One Fell Out of the Cuckoos Nest and Traci posted about taking portraits of a different kind.  I really love this idea, I love the mystery and imagination that pictures of people but not their faces invokes.  So I thought I would post a couple of pics I have taken recently, actually my husband took the one above of the girls and me.  We actually didn't pose the arms how funny, talk about 3 peas in a pod. 

I also had a time where I took heaps of shadow photos.  I love love love shadow photos.  The way we look in them is sooooo funny.  Legs look like tree trunks, heads are huge, you are either 10 feet tall and thin or 2 feet all and fat.  Love it sooooo much.

Peanut Butter Cookies

100g butter, softened
1/2 cup (140g) crunchy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups (225g) brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 cups (185g) plain (all purpose) flour, sifted
1/4 tsp bicarb (baking) soda, sifted
1 cup (220g) Demerara sugar for rolling

Pre heat oven to 180c (355f).  Place the butter, peanut butter, vanilla and brown sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for 8-10 mins or until well combined.  Add the egg and beat for 2-3 mins or until light and fluffy.  Add the flour and bicarb soda and beat until a smooth dough forms.  Roll one tablespoon of dough into a ball at a time and roll in Demerara sugar.  Place on baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper, leaving room to spread.  Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden.  Allow to cool on wire racks.  Makes 24

I used to bake a lot, but since we began weight watching I haven't baked at all hardly.  Last night though I made these delicious cookies.  They are scrumptious, so pea nutty and moist in the middle.  They are from the Donna Hay magazine Oct/Nov 2009 edition.


  1. Hi, love that your arms were not posed. The peanuts look scrumptious and I too love shadow pictures. Take care.

  2. Rolled in sugar! Yum.. 3 peas in a pod is right:) Very cute.

  3. Wow, Kim! Great minds think alike - that first shot is terrific! Thanks so much for linking me up, too. The fact that I also made it into a post with peanutbutter cookies makes me think we are somehow related!
    Thanks so much for visiting my blog! I'm off to look at your other blogs. :D

  4. the cookies look delicious and i checked out the blog you mentioned and i've had some unusual pics taken of my son

    like his 9 mths old, naked with a cowboy hat on, but it's taken from behind so all you see is this itty bitty bottom and his cowboy hat - i love it

  5. Cinner, isn't always amazing that the people whose blogs we follow we end up having much in common with, always tickles me.
    Monique, anything rolled in sugar oh yeah!!
    Traci, Peanut butter anything, I ador the Baskin & Robbins chocolate peanut butter icecream absolutely too die for!!!
    Speaking from the Crib, I would love to see that cute little bare bottom in a cowboy hat how gorgeous.
