Wonderful to be back to Aberdeen again! I was away to visit my daughter again, the third trip in a very short time. This time was to help her move house. You can imagine the horror when I found that her new place had no internet and no tv while I was there! Sounds like I was living during the stone age time! That’s when I am even more thankful to places like McDonalds and Starbucks where I can sit as long as I want for just a cup of coffee while using the free wifi…..phew.

Moving house is really no joke. Actually not really moving house but moving room! It’s almost just as bad….the packing up, the moving, cleaning up of the old place, unpacking the stuff in the new place……gosh! But I was really happy as a mom to be able to there to help while she was very busy running around with her work.

The moment I reached home from airport, I went straight into the kitchen……..food preparation for mooncake potluck dinner in church the next day. Sounds super woman huh….haha. But no, it’s because I wanted to make mooncakes to bring along to share with friends. Making mooncakes is very time consuming so I had to start early. Besides, I also wanted to play badminton the next day before the dinner….*big grin*.

I actually went through a few days of almost non-stop cooking, for dinners and pot luck lunch in my place. It’s always wonderful to catch up with friends. In  those few days, I think I must have made about 200 mooncakes! I think I amazed myself……*big grin*. I’m really happy that I made nicer mooncakes this time….*BIG smiles*

In the midst of all the busyness at my daughter’s place, I’m very happy that I was able to bake something to share with her housemates. I made peanut cookies, Shanghai mooncakes and chocolate chip cookies. They were all made without proper baking equipment. But it worked!….*big smiles*.

The first one I want to share is the peanut cookies. Goodness me…….this must be the easiest cookie on earth! You really must try this one, if you are not allergic to peanuts. They are not only very easy but really delicious. The only warning from me is not to over bake.

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients
1 bottle (340g) crunchy peanut butter
1 egg
1C sugar

Whisk egg and sugar

Put the egg and sugar in a mixing bowl. Whisk until mixed well.

Mix into a dough

Add the peanut butter and mix with a spoon until thick and looks like cookie dough. It will thicken as you keep stirring.

Ready to bake

Scoop into balls, flatten a little and arrange on a paper lined tray. You can make patterns on it with fork if you like.

Bake at 200 degrees Celsius for about 8 minutes. They may look soft and pale but it’s ok. It hardens as it cools down. They won’t be nice if you bake longer. They become much harder and don’t taste as good. I baked 2 trays, one is softer than the other as you can see here by the colour difference in the picture below. The softer ones tasted really good. So, remember, do not overbake. However, you can experiment if you like.

Although I’m allergic to peanuts, I actually do like peanut butter. Tell ya a little secret….when I accidentally eat something with peanut butter, inside I’m secretly grinning with joy. Hahaha. Don’t know if you have Reese’s peanut butter cups chocolate there, but they are one of my fave chocolates. After I found out I was allergic to peanuts, of course I had to stop eating them. Sigh. Tell ya another secret, if those cookies were right in front of me, don’t turn your back coz a few might magically go missing in a very short time. Haha.
