Peanut butter cookies recipe | Kittenhood

You may or may not know this, but I’m a big Miffy fan. I have no idea why – I am, after all, a grown-up, and this bunny hasn’t been part of my childhood in any way. But I can’t resist her cute, minimalist features. When I visited her homeland last year, I went out of my way to find the Miffy store, and came back with as much stuff as I could carry. So you can imagine my excitement when I found Miffy shaped cookies on a blog! I immediately bought the cookie cutters from Amazon and they arrived yesterday. I’ve already made a second batch of bunny cookies and I love how they turned out. Wanna try? They’re absolutely perfect for Easter!

Cook Time
10 min
Ingredients
  1. 80g unsalted butter, room temperature
  2. 2 tbsp peanut butter
  3. 1/2 cup caster sugar
  4. 1 small egg, room temperature
  5. 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a mixer, put the butter, peanut butter and caster sugar, and mix well until the composition is light and fluffy.
  2. Add in the egg, and mix until well incorporated.
  3. Sift in the flour, progresively. If the mixer can no longer handle the weight of the dough, continue forming it by hand.
  4. On a well-floured surface, roll out the dough in a thin layer. Cut the cookies in shapes and place on a lined tray.
  5. Place the tray in the fridge for 15 minutes, so that the cookies don't lose their shape from the heat (you can skip this step if your cutters don't feature any details). Meanwhile, preheat the oven at 160 degrees Celsius (320 Fahrenheit).
  6. Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes or until the sides start browning slightly.
Notes
  1. You can replace caster sugar with granulated sugar, although the cookies might end up more irregularly shaped.
  2. When you roll the dough, keep in mind that the cookies don't have any baking soda, bicarbonate or yeast, so they won't grow. The thickness of the cookies will be the same before and after baking. For the same reason, you can place them very close to each other on the tray.

Guest post: World’s Tastiest Vegan Pizza

Ina is the talented gal behind Lifestyle Blog, a mother of one, and a nature lover. She posts healthy, vegetarian recipes on her blog, and she was sweet enough to share one of them with us. She says it’s the world’s tastiest vegan pizza… and I think she may be right!

Vegan Pizza Recipe - Kittenhood

When Daria first asked me to write a guest post for her, I was totally in awe, mainly because I love her style and her ideas, and because I’ve never had a guest post invitation until now. So I gladly accepted without even knowing what to prepare. I really had no idea! Right now I like to cook mainly from cookbooks, because I feel like I have no time and inspiration (I have a toddler to raise). But last week I broke the rules and I’ve made the most delicious vegan Bolognese sauce ever! I was amazed to see that my inspiration didn’t leave me forever 🙂 and I could come up with such a wonderful recipe. It was so good, I thought it would be a great idea to share the recipe that became my favorite lately, something I like to call “World’s Tastiest Vegan Pizza”! And yes, the secret ingredient for this delicious dish is my vegan Bolognese sauce! 

This pizza is packed with protein, fibers and iron, thanks to the textured soy, tofu and whole wheat flour. While it’s a vegan pizza, the taste is amazing. You will be surprised to see how good it is!

Vegan Pizza Toppings - Kittenhood

World’s Tastiest Vegan Pizza

  1. Turn the oven to 425 degrees F (220 Celsius). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a floured surface, knead the risen dough a few times. Using your hands (not a rolling-pin! We want a tasty, elastic dough), flatten the dough and give it the traditional pizza shape. Don’t worry if you won’t be able to make a perfect rounded pizza! It looks even prettier when it’s rustic!
  3. Put the dough on the baking sheet. Top the dough with vegan Bolognese sauce and the toppings you prefer. I used corn, kalamata olives, pepper and cauliflower, but feel free to add grilled zucchini or eggplant, mushrooms, peas etc. 
  4. Bake the pizza for about ten minutes.
  5. I like to crumble some smoked tofu and add some fresh rucola on top after it’s done.
  6. Enjoy it! It’s delicious!
