Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

This was a cookie recipe that I tried out during the CB, to entertain the boy and get him to continue with his Busy Baker curriculum that he used to have once a week in school. The kids learn how to cook and prepare simple types of food during their Busy Baker lessons, such as pizzas, dumplings, sandwiches in animal shapes etc. So since he was stuck at home with his mummy during the CB, I thought, we might as well try out something together as well. Something simple and which will not require too much cleaning up.

This is definitely much better than working in an air-conditioned office with the air drafts blowing directly from above my head, though I still can’t get used to all the faceless and distant Skype and Zoom calls with my colleagues.

Ham & Cheese Bread Rolls

Is this the third time already that I’ve attempted a ham and cheese bread roll? I think it must be, though I can’t remember when the last attempt was exactly.
