This post is brought to you by Volvo.
The engineer who invented the self-cleaning oven? Pull up a chair mate.
Josephine Cochrane, the dreamer who glanced down at her manicure and wished the dishes would wash themselves. This one goes out to you.
The engineer at Volvo who had the brilliant idea of putting built-in booster seats in the XC60? You get two cookies.
The Swedish prodigy who added an automatic tail gate? You win the life-long adoration of this woman who refuses to make two trips. AND I’ll make you these cookies any time you like.
There was a rainy afternoon when I considered marrying the person who invented heated car seats, but I have no idea about his marital status. Perhaps a biscuit dedication is more appropriate.
I discovered another genius invention this week: peanut butter chips. Want little chunks of peanut butter in your cookies but not sure how to pull it off? Some brilliant baking inventor has you covered. I expect that creator of chips of peanut butter is capable of making their own biscuit devotion, but you make the credits of this recipe anyway!
double chocolate peanut butter cookies
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ½ cups plain flour
1/3 cup cocoa
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
100g dark chocolate pieces
90g (½ cup) peanut butter chips
Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and beat again until combined. Add the flour, cocoa, baking powder and soda. Mix until well combined. If the mix is too stiff add a splash of milk to the cookie mixture. Stir in the chocolate and peanut butter pieces.
Place tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto baking trays and bake in a 180°C oven for twelve minutes or until the cookies are baked but still gooey inside. Allow to cool on the tray for five minutes before transferring to cooling racks.
We left a bag of these biscuits on the front seat of the XC60 when we returned it to Volvo yesterday. While I’m not certain that they’ll make it all the way to the clever clogs design engineers in Sweden, but I hope the joker who drew the Big Mower on the in-car navigation gets at least one. You tickled my funny bone, well played, Sir.
what inventor would you dedicate a biscuit to?0
