drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

I made some peanut butter crisscross cookies last night, and we had them with the ever delightful Vanilla Comoro. Mmmmmmmm. The vanilla/caramel/nice tea combined with the vanilla/sugar/peanut butter flavor so well!

OK, from now on when you mention these cookies you have to make them available for us steepsterites! :) j/t – but they sound amazing! Especially with that awesome tea!

They are sooooo easy – I halved the recipe to make 30 cookies. This is the halved recipe if you want to try it!

Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe (30 cookies)

1 stick butter, (1/2 cup) softened

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1/2 cup peanut butter

1 and 1/2 cups flour

1/8 teaspoon salt (if you use salted butter, omit)

1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets, or use non-stick ones, or line with parchment paper. Cream together butter, vanilla and sugars (I did this all in a mixer but I’m sure a handheld or bowl and whisk would do fine!). Add the egg and beat well. Stir in peanut butter. Mix together flour, salt and baking soda. Add flour mixture until just combined.

Form into tiny balls with palm of hands. Place on cookie sheet. Press each cookie twice with back of fork to make crisscross design. Bake 8 to 10 minutes (my oven is slow and I baked for 12 minutes).

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
