Peanut Butter And Choc Chip Cookies

My friend Sam told me that her son Handsome loves it when she bakes my peanut butter and chocolate rusks. This was such a compliment for me, as kids are honest to a fault about what they like and dislike. After reviewing The Family Cook Book I decided to adapt her recipe for the oat cookies and make a batch of Peanut Butter And Choc Chip Cookies. I sent a message to Sam asking her if the kids would eat these peanut butter and choc chip cookies and I got a voice message back with handsome saying an emphatic no and Pretty Girl (her daughter) saying yes. With only a 50% positive response to my idea, I left a voice message for my nieces who live in Sydney. Sasha replied telling me that my cookie idea is very good, and gave me ‘permission’ to try it. Nadia who is 3 does not like peanut butter. But she wants sprinkles and stuff and icing! So, these cookies only got a thumbs up from 2 of the 4 children asked, but they got a huge thumbs up from Dave who does not like peanut butter! I suppose next on my list will be cookies made with stuff for the cutest little one who really knows what she wants.

Do you have children who know what cookie flavours they like best?
