Another challenge from Indonesian blogger group, this time the theme is about cookies. If you would like to join us, find the link to submit your post here.

 

When it comes to the kitchen, sometimes i’m a bit selfish, i only cooked every food that i like…lol. Cookies are related to eid mubarak, because i only made cookies when it comes. When admin announce the challenge, yay…thank God, i still have some cookies left at home. Peanut butter cookies usually made from peanut, but recently there are some modification in ingredients to make it easier, some people using peanut butter to replace peanut. In my childhood, peanut cookies always made when lebaran or christmas. The texture so far a bit different between cookies that made from peanut and peanut butter. The one made from peanut had stronger texture which i love more.
