Peanut Butter Stamped Cookies

Peanut Butter Stamped Cookies

The weather in the last 24 hours has been truly frightful and so to keep things delightful, I decided to bake some cookies. If not for the fact that my son was travelling with his friends back from camp a hundred miles away, I would have said, “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!” As it turned out, I baked cookies and waited anxiously for his return.

It started snowing near midnight on Saturday and continued throughout Sunday. Ro-Ri San went out early in the morning to clear the snow from the driveway so that we could go to church but the snow kept coming down in large flakes. Before we left, he had to clear it one more time. By early afternoon, 12 inches of snow had fallen. The snow was wet and heavy. Good thing we had a snow thrower to do the job.

Since there was no place to go, we built a fire in the fireplace and spent a lazy afternoon by it. The fire was really so delightful. It made the place warm and cozy, perfect for enjoying the Peanut Butter Stamped Cookies and a cup of sweet spicy Christmas tea.

Fortunately, the cookies also turned out to be quite delightful. They were buttery and fragrant and went nicely with the tea. By the time we were done with tea, Ro-Jiro (second son) arrived home safely. :)

I found this ceramic cookie stamp at World Market earlier this week. They came in two designs. My first choice was the red stamp with the words “Made with Love”. Unfortunately the cookie stamp did not survive the trip home as it wasn’t properly wrapped. The handle must have knocked something and it broke right off. Upon my return to the store I was sadly disappointed that the red cookie stamps were all gone and so I had to settle for this green one with the words, “Home Made”. This one is also cute but I do intend to go back and get the other one sometime. Hopefully, the store will restock them soon. If you do not live near a World Market and are interested to purchase a cookie stamp on-line, here is a slightly different one that you may consider.

    If this post does not look like a Christmas Card… I don’t know what does. The fact that it’s covered in white snow outside and you have a beautiful firing going with these amazing cookies. I wish I could just insert myself in the picture. That would make perfect holiday moment. :)

    I have one of those fun stamps, what I’m curious about is the cutter. Is that cast iron? I’ve never seen one last it. I’d love to know where you purchased it!! Thank you for the lovely post.

      The cutter is not cast iron. I think it is made of the regular material used for all cookie cutters with a plastic-like handle. It comes in a set of 3, the largest being the 3-inch round. I bought the set years ago and I can’t exactly remember where but it must have been one of my shopping sprees to the outlet malls. The store sells all kinds of kitchen gadgets. Here is a similar set.

      Thanks for the kind words! :)

    I have to admit, that even though I’m not a fan of the cold, there is nothing more enjoyable than being snowed in, sitting by a fire, drinking tea. Since it’s apparently not going to happen down here this year from the looks of it, I appreciate your pictures and your having shared this lovely moment with us. I can feel the cold and the warmth of the fire! Of course the cookies are the icing on the cake!!! YUM!!!!

      We can’t avoid it living here in Minnesota. It’s always fun at the beginning of the season and can get old towards February and March. Building a fire at the fireplace does help. Preferably with tea and cookies. :)

    Glad to hear that your boy made it home safe :) Pity you had to forego the “made with love” cookie stamp, but the “home made” stamp is really nice. Your cookies look delicious too! They make me regret passing up on some pretty Christmas design cookie stamps I saw in Paris, but I’m already going out of my mind, trying to safely wrap and cram the few delicate things I couldn’t resist buying during our stops on this very hectic and physically demanding trip! Btw – was wondering, what did you fill the heart shaped depression with?

    • Biren says

      I will have to go back to the store soon to see if they brought in more of the “Made with Love” cookie stamp. They are worth collecting. I used powdered/icing sugar mixed with a little water and food coloring for the hearts. :)

      Hope you had a wonderful trip. Can’t wait to see the goodies you brought home. Please do share on your blog.
