Peanut-Butter-Choc-Chip Cookies

These are my absolute favorite cookies of ALL TIME.  Whenever I make these I think of my childhood days and Christmas holidays.  These are one of the few recipes my mom made and I think the first cookies I've made as well.

Here is the recipe.

125g butter
125ml brown sugar
125ml white sugar
1 egg beaten
2ml vanilla essence
375ml flour
3ml bicarbonate of soda
pinch of salt
125ml peanut butter
3 - 4 tablespoons of chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 200° C
Cream butter and sugar.  Add vanilla essence
Add egg and mix well
Sift dry ingredients and mix
Add peanut butter and chocolate chips and mix
Roll into golf ball sized balls and place them on a baking tray, leave enough space between cookies because they spread
Flatten with a fork but not too much
Bake for 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown
Remove from the baking tray and cool on a cooling rack

If you want them nice and crunchy leave then in for a few minutes longer, until they look like the picture

Pantone color of the year 2015

What a color for 2015! I absolutely love this color, Marsala.  This would be great as an autumn color wedding but I think it would be great as a summer wedding color as well.  Marsala paired with grey or even cream would be just as gorgeous.

Have a look at images below to get your creativity going.

MelissaBee's Favourite... Chair Backs

Today I share my favourites with you.  I love weddings and wedding decor and this week I was looking at chair back covers and I'd like to share my favourites with you.

1.  Huge ruffles chiffon roses.  What a statement these make.  Huge and romantic.
2.  Very elegant ruffled satin with lace top.
3.  Very simple lace with romantic vintage brooch.  This is something that can be transformed into a wedding diy
4. Love this vintage romantic display of roses, pearls and chiffon.

Have a look on pinterest for more ideas.
