Celebrity Foods Employees’ Dessert Recipes

Naturally, it is no surprise that we at Celebrity Foods spend a lot of time thinking about food. As a true lover of great food, I enjoy my time at my job in much the same way as my mother enjoys her time at her job, namely taking care of us kids. One way I know that is from seeing her enjoyment while making sweet treats of chocolate and oats, Peanut-y Crisscrosses, for me and my brother when we visit. I invite you to try some.

 
If you like Peanut-y Crisscrosses or have a similar recipe and story, I invite you to share with your fellow Celebrity Foods Employees.  Simply reply to this post or create your own post. Let’s create a collection of recipes and recipe stories together. Food creativity has no limit.

 
Peanut-y Crisscrosses

Serving Size – 7 dozen cookies

 

Ingredients

 
3 cups oats

1 ½ cups all purpose flour

½ teaspoon soda

¾ cup butter or margarine, softened

1 cup peanut butter

1 ½ cups firmly packed brown sugar

1 /3 cup water

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

 

Preparation

 
In a medium bowl, combine oats, flour, and soda. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, peanut butter, and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Blend in the water, egg, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients; mix well. Chill the dough about 1 hour. Heat the oven to 350 degrees Farenheit. Shape the dough to form 1 inch balls. Place the dough on undergreased cookie sheets and then flatten the dough with the tines of a fork dipped in granulated sugar to form the criss cross pattern.

 

 Cooking

 
Bake the dough balls 9-10 minutes or until the edges of the balls are golden brown. Cool for 1 min. on the cookie sheets and then remove them to a wire cooling rack.
