Farmhouse Cookies

I baked these cookies on the eve's on Mother's Day..Hubby said this cookies is the best cookies he ever tried!! I guess he try to be nice to me ! He always said that to me when I make him his meal.I also bring some of this cookies for friends and within minutes,the whole tin gone!! I preferred to baked drop cookies than other method cookies likes pipping or cutter,coz it's easier and simple!! These cookies packed with cereal but I used rolled oat which are high in fibre and children will love them as much as the adults. I would love to share this recipe with you here..


115 g/ 1 1/2 cup unsalted butter,at room temperature
90gm/ generous 1 cup light brown sugar
65 gm/ 1 1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 egg
50gm/ 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2.5ml/1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2.5 ml/ 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
175 gm/ 1 1/2 cups muesli(granola) I used rolled oat
50gm/ 1 1 /3 cup raisins
50gm/ 1 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


1:Preheat the oven to 180 C/250 F.Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.

2:In a large bowl,beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.Beat in the peanut butter,until mixed,then beat in the egg.

3:Sift the flour,baking powder,cinnamon and salt over the peanut butter mixture in batches and stir well after each addition.Stir in the muesli,raisins and walnuts.(taste the mixture to see if it needs more sugar, as muesli varies)

4:Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of the mixture on to the prepared baking sheet about 2.5 cm/ 1 inch apart to allow room for spreading during baking.Press each gently with the back of a spoon to spread each mound into a circle.

5:Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes until lightly coloured.Leave to firm up slightly on the baking sheets,then with a metal spatula,transfer the cookies to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.Store the cookies in an airtight container.

Looks Yum! Haha, at least your American husband will say it's the best cookie he ever try. My Chinese husband hardly ever give compliment on my food. The only way I know is the satisfying sound coming out from his mouth when eating (Mmm), or his action of keep coming back for more. Very different eh.

The cookies looks great and I am sure it taste even better. Carlos also like Eliot. Will compliment the food I made for him and he still thank me for cooking for him after each meal. I guess they are a bit different from our Asian people :)

thanks! I know chinese or asian ppls don't like to express their they as "sam chui",as long as we know each other what is the point to said the word out loud!! but kwai lo style a quite different ,right? sometimes I'm not use to my hubby said thank you when I make him meal..

thanks! yalor....asian and "kwailo" culture are totally different...but sometimes we asian said kwailo are hypocrite when said "thank you "or delicious even it's not!! kwailo think it's polite to give compliment or said something good rather than silent...silent mean rude or bad..right?

thanks for your kind words,appreciated it! hahaha!! chinese hubby and kwailo hubby or ABC are quite different right? I think it's the culture and teaching ..U see, when we visit our family in Malaysia,we didn't hug and kiss our parents or siblings,right? but here we even hug and kiss someone we not really my ssiter said "heart know enough la,why wanna to show ma"!lol!

Thank you:)

This looks delicious. My hubby will tell me honestly if they are good or not but then sometimes even I find it not nice and want to throw the whole thing away, he will still eat it so that my effort do not go to waste. :)
