January 22nd – “You definitely need a break.”

Breaks are a great time to make cookies! I was reading an English novel and watching the British Bake Off, so tea and biscuits were on my mind.

My partner bought this ridiculously overpriced maple sugar yesterday, so I made peanut butter cookies.


Maple sugar is rare to find in the West Coast, but if you’re in the East Coast (especially in the New England area), I’m sure you’ll find it readily available at your grocery store. This recipe came from the bag, so I thought it that it would be foolproof.


(Chocolate) Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup flour

1 tsp baking soda

½ cup peanut butter

1 stick butter

1/3 cup maple sugar

1/3 cup brown sugar (or 1/6 cup honey)

½ tsp vanilla

1 egg

Some unsweetened chocolate (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cream butter and sugar together.
  3. Mix in the rest of the wet ingredients
  4. Mix in the dry ingredients.
  5. Make into 1 tablespoon balls and drop onto cookie sheet.
  6. Flatten cookies with hand.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes

I thought it might be weird with both honey and maple sugar, but I didn’t really taste the maple sugar at all. Only the honey came through. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
