I don't know why I feel like I want to take photos of
every single cookie I make,
using my vintage scales.
It's not like these scales are AWESOME or anything.
(oh, the fun of PHOTOSCAPE)
Now THIS is what I call an AWESOME set of scales.
This was a giveaway awhile back but I can't remember who was so generous...
I do, however, remember that I DIDN'T win it...:(
I came sooo close to not buying these PLAIN JANE scales at the garage sale down the street from me.
It was last summer and they were moving.
She had $2.00 on them and....
$2.00 is pretty cheap, I guess....even for something that you KINDA like but far from LOVE.
I had a set of vintage scales almost EXACTLY like these
only mine are in MUCH better condition.
Little solid brass trays, all shiny and bright.
They were very olden when I bought them at an antiques store over 40 years ago.
I gave them to my beautiful daughter several years ago.
I wonder....does she ever want to fill them with
homemade peanut butter cookies.?
Now, I would REALLY love to have one of the olden
grocery store hanging scales.
Most likely I will never find one that I can afford...
That's the way the cookie crumbles....
THREE INGREDIENT PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
1 cup PEANUT BUTTER, smooth or chunky
1 cup sugar
MIX all together and drop by teaspoon on slightly greased (Pam) cookie sheet.
Dipping your fork into sugar (to keep it from sticking to the dough),
make crisscross pattern on each.
Bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes....until a golden, delicious brown.
When my little boy was in 2nd grade (bwaaaaaaaaa)
the school compiled a cookbook, using wonderful and tasty recipes from the mothers.
This cookie recipe was in it and I couldn't believe there was no FLOUR.
I made them for my baby boy...
he loved them....
and now 47 years later,
I still make them for him....
I just made a batch to take to our home fellowship gathering
and he is in our group...so...he gets COOKIES. ;)
