Peanut Butter Cookies For David

Peanut Butter Cookies For David

Today is my brother’s birthday. I wanted to bake for him. He died almost three years ago, very suddenly, just before Christmas. I miss him every day – his raucous laugh, his bear hugs, his passion for life, music, food and travel. He would have been twenty-eight today. I can’t bear that he never got to experience all that he should have – to grow as the great musician and composer that he was, to get married (he was such a hopeless romantic), to have children and be a father (he would have been an amazing dad), and to live.

When I was four and he was seven, always enjoying food :)

When I was 15 and he was 18, on New Years Eve.

His favourite cookies as a child were peanut butter cookies. I have recently fallen in love with this recipe, by Heidi Swanson. I know David would have loved them. These are for him.

Natural Peanut Butter

Wholemeal flour

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Pure Maple Syrup

Stir to just combine, still "dusty" with flour

I added a touch of coarse sea salt

Happy Birthday, David. Love, Bud.
