Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

Pretzels (made yesterday):

1 Package of yeast

1 1/2 cup of water

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp sugar

4 cups of flour

1 egg (to coat pretzel before oven)

Directions:

Turn the oven on at 375 degrees.  Put the yeast in warm water and place on the oven for ten minutes. Mix dry ingredients together with a whisk.

Add active yeast to dry ingredients.  Remove any rings (:-) and knead dough until smooth and firm. make it into a ball, and place in back in the bowl.  Cover it with a towel and leave it for half an hour.

Once it has risen.  put it on the counter, and create the regular pretzel or braid pattern.  This is a great opportunity to get kids involved- have them make their name!

Place the finished patterns on a greased cookie sheet and coat with beaten egg (use a brush to put this coating on).  The pretzels should be finished in aprox. 10-15 minutes.

It has been a ‘baking weekend’

Peanut Butter Cookies

  • 1 cup of butter
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter- I used all natural crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

 

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together

Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars, and beat in eggs

Stir- you can refrigerate to harden the peanut  butter, but I didn’t- and because of the firmness of all natural peanut butter , there was no problem

Roll into small balls and put on baking sheets with parchment paper. Flatten each ball with a fork

Bake at 350 degrees  for about 10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown
