Baking season

Hunting season is upon us.
Mr. Lakehouse hunts from opening day to the very end.
He hunts, rabbits, squirrels, ducks, geese, turkey, deer, and anything else that has feathers, fur, and claws.
I LOVE this time of year, because, for me, it's baking season.

The first thing I usually bake is peanut butter cookies.
They are Mr. Lakehouse's favorite cookie.

He's a big boy, and likes his cookies big!

He makes cookie sandwiches.
A cookie in between two other cookies.
 A BIG glass of milk always goes with this treat.

This is the easiest recipe ever!
My brother shared it with me years ago.
There is a little trick for removing the baked cookies off the baking pan.

Let them rest on the baking sheet for about four minutes first...then remove them.
Otherwise they will fall apart.
That's about it.  Easy peasy. and already gone!!! Well, this plate is......


  1. Well, that does sound easy...and they look delicious. I think they would make my sweet Cookie Monster very happy tonight!!

  2. These look delicious, Debbie. My hubby loves cookies, too. A little too much! I have been in the baking mood, too, but I really need to cut back on the calories. I'll just admire that plate of goodness that you whipped up!!

    Have a fun weekend!!


  3. Peanut Butter cookies are a big hit at our house too! Your cookies look yummy!!!

  4. Great pics Debbie! Happy Weekend:@)

  5. Yummmm...I love peanut butter cookies and now I want some!

  6. That is different from my usual recipe, but I'm going to have to try it! They look delicious.

  7. I meant to add that my boys figure a 'serving' is as many homemade cookies as they can fit in a stack in their hand.

  8. Yummy!! My hubby loves peanut butter cookies...think I'll make him some of these this weekend. Thanks for sharing your recipe with all of us.

  9. My husband loves peanut butter cookies! Those look so good Deb! You are such a baker!!!
    Also I can't believe that African violet was faux, sure fooled me!

  10. Oh, I forgot to say, I'm having a Ramsign giveaway on my blog PLEASE come over and join!

  11. Debbie, those look yummy! Love to back in the fall my first things will be my Grandma's banana bread and her apple crisp..starts off the season!

  12. If your husband is doing that much hunting, remind me to trim my fingernails and not to wear a fur coat around him! ;-) The cookies look great!

  13. Those looks yummy! I don't have much of a sweet tooth but my husband has a huge one. Yesterday I made him apple crisp and it smelled soooo good while it was baking:) It's nice and cool here in So Cal, I'm loving it!

  14. Gone already? and he didn't save a one for us? Man..... they look delicious I can see why he all of them. If he does that much hunting I'm sure you'll be doing a lot more baking.. I'm glad you're enjoying Mary Carol's Fall Open House, there are a couple of more posts coming up I hope you aren't getting too bored. I hope you'll find the find to swing over to view those.. Happy Baking.. hugs ~lynne~

  17. I make the same recipe but only with half a cup of sugar, the cookies are soft and so yummy. I find this recipe really pushes the peanutbutter taste as it doesn't contain flour. yum!
