We were lucky enough to win a recent giveaway from Linda at Two Pink Possums as part of the Blogtober Festivities. Our lovely package arrived yesterday, all beautifully wrapped.
I won the Tribeca Tunic pattern (I am thinking of a beach coverup out of cheesecloth or similar now we have some decent weather again!). Linda very generously included some goodies for Sarah too – some funky scrap booking paper and some fun, girly fabric. I especially love the pink camouflage print – perfect for a beach tote! Thanks again Linda for your generosity – you really made our day!!
We are keeping busy at Chez Sugar with a special party coming up this weekend. Here is a sneak peak at some of the party preparations – can’t wait to show you the rest next week.
Sarah has been keeping us well fed with all her wonderful baking. This week she has tried out a couple of the cookie recipes from the latest Donna Hay magazine. The Peanut Butter cookies are my favourite so far.
Peanut Butter Cookies
100 g butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cup plain flour
1/4 teaspoon bicarb soda
1 cup Demerara sugar for rolling
Preheat oven to 180 deg C. Place butter, peanut butter, vanilla and brown sugar in bowl of electric mixer and beat for 8-10 mins until well combined. Add the egg and beat for 2-3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add flour and bicarb soda and beat until smooth dough forms. Roll one tablespoon of dough into a ball at a time and roll in Demerara sugar. Place on baking trays lined with baking paper. Bake for 10-12 mins. Cool on wire racks.
