Peanut Butter and Sour Cherry Cookies


how is your Monday so far? I took a sick day today because I totally couldn’t sleep last night maybe because yesterday at 12AM I had way too many cookies before bed, when I said many I mean really MANY!! 🙂  So back to what I was saying, I didn’t sleep at all last night, that is so weird and frustrating, so today morning I took a day off from work!

For breakfast I had grapes and orange juice:

I had more, this is a picture from yesterday’s small picnic in our yard. I also had some tea! I was not hungry at all for breakfast, because like I said I had a hundred cookies before bed! 🙂

And now, as I promised yesterday, here is the recipe for the cookies that I did yesterday! My grandma makes them all the time for me and they are delicious, actually they turned out very good, soft and yummy!:)


You need:

– 2 cups (12 oz per cup) of all purpose flour

– 2 sticks of organic butter room temperature

– 100g Peanut Butter room temperature

– 200g sour cream room temperature

– 2 more cups (12 oz per cup) of all purpose flour

In a bowl combine the first 2 ingredients, the 2 cups of flour with the butter:

Add Peanut Butter and mix well, after that combine with the sour cream:

I don’t own a food processor so everything was done by hand, make sure you mix well the sour cream into the dough, the result should be a very fluffy and moist dough:

Now, little by little begin adding into the mix the remaining 2 cups of flour until the dough will have a moist-firm texture, easy to roll and work with and non sticky:

Cover with a towel and let it sit for 2 hours at room temperature.

After 2 hours divide the dough into balls, size as your fist. Take one ball and roll into a sheet:

Cut in small squares:


3 or 4 cherries per square and roll into a small croissant:


Or if you are out of cherries and maybe want only peanut butter cookies:

Bake for 30-40 min at 400F until golden, don’t burn 🙂

Let them cool, because we have to cover them in powdered sugar, and if the cookies will be warm the sugar will melt.

Now Enjoy!! A nice paring will be a glass of tea or maybe a caramel cappuccino! 🙂

Do you love to make home-made cookies? I do! The process makes me feel so good, such a harmony in the house persists, the smell of freshly baked cookies is just so comfortable and peaceful!
