Fun-tastic Cuisine!

Teen-Seen has been all about creative food this week- but what about a food you can play with and not get in trouble? Sounds cool huh?

This recipe has been in my family ever since my Dad's grandma won a peanut butter cookie contest with these. We always make them around the holidays. They also became a traditional snack at the Jr. Beta State convention in Myrtle Beach! Oh wait- no instructions? You just dump the ingredients in a bowl and stir?
Yep, Peanut Butter Log Cookies are that easy. Dump the ingredients into a bowl. Stir until well blended. Then shape! This is best done on wax paper sprinkled with powdered sugar. Dust your hands with some more powdered sugar, and get your hands dirty! Usually you can get 2 logs that are each about a foot long. Then you top with powdered sugar and stick 'em in the refrigerator. Leave them in there until solid and then slice and enjoy! They're no-bake, all-fun, and completely delicious!

Log cookies are the easiest (and safest) things that I like to make. My dad and I love to whip together AWESOME desserts- cheesecakes, almond roca, chocolate mousse, jellyrolls, ice-cream cakes, ice cream, even creme brulee. You name it, Dad and I have probably made it. When I first started to really cook with my dad, it got to the point that Mom (Regan) cringed when we reached for the sugar in the pantry. Now we've slowed down some, but we still enjoy ourselves when it's our turn in the kitchen.

In my opinion, the most creative food is the one that gives you the most memories. What sorts of family recipes do you have? What's you favorite dessert? Who do you like cooking with most? Interested Teen-Seen readers and I want to know!
