I love baking for other people

Posted on September 17, 2009. Filed under: Deserts | Tags: , |

One of the reasons why I bake and cook so much is because I love giving the food away to other people. Seeing someone else really happy to eat a good meal or dessert, it makes me really happy. One of my favorite groups of people to bake for are casts and crews on shows. For some reason, they get more excited than anyone else (besides the KFC people, but no one can beat them) for my baking. Maybe its because they’re on permante diets and you can’t pass up free food? Who knows. Anyway, tomorrow La Mancha openes and I wanted to bake something special. The wardrobe girl suggested I make peanutbutter cookies with crunchy peanut butter in them, so I did that, and I also made horse shaped (I didn’t have a windmill cookie cutter) roll out cookies.

Crunch but soft peanut butter cookies
