Winter baking

I've been on a cookie kick lately, and since I haven't posted about food for awhile, here are some recipes/pictures to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Peanut Butter Cookies (modified from the recipe on the organic brown sugar from Woodstock Farms)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1/2 cut butter
- 1 egg
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda

Cream together sugars and butters. Add egg. Stir in flour and baking soda. Drop by teaspoonful onto a baking sheet and bake in preheated oven (325 F).

From left to right, Orange cookies with lemon filling, PB cookies (recipe above), Lemon-scented cookies with vanilla filling, and in the back are Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (from Quaker's recipe).

The Orange and Lemon cookies are the same recipe as the PB recipe above, just remove the peanut butter and add either grated orange zest (apx 1tsp) or 2 tsp lemon juice.
