Yes, this is as delicious as it sounds. I can’t take credit for the idea as I saw it on pinterest. I was drawn to idea of creating a spread using a slow cooker. My mum’s slow cooker is a bit of a weird one (apparently, you need a spanner to be able to change to dial from high to low) but eventually I managed to get my apples cooked enough to be turned into apple butter. I used this and this recipe as a reference. It’s dead simple; make the apple butter and then blend in with the peanut butter, maple syrup and cinnamon.

I decided to make this along with the jam because I thought it would make great Christmas presents. I’m also looking forward to stirring it through my porridge in the mornings!

Peanut Butter Cookies

In Baking, Biscuits/Cookies on August 12, 2012 at 8:37 am

I made these for my brother today as a welcome back to New Zealand present – and also because I am a total sucker for peanut butter cookie dough. This recipe came together effortlessly and deliciously, which was a bit help as today I was rushing around like a flea in a fit, trying to get my errands done before he arrived! I won’t copy the recipe out here because I haven’t changed it all that much, but it came from this site – which has served me well in the past. If you haven’t indulged in peanut butter cookies for a while, I seriously suggest you use this recipe as an excuse to do so! I am currently in the process of making black bread and roasted vegetable soup for tomorrow, so hopefully will be able to take some pics of those as well 🙂
