Peanut Butter?

My next door neighbor, an absolutely delightful character who snowbirds here, arrived today for a brief pass-through visit from New Mexico to a cooler clime in Washington.  She surprised me with the fact that she just had her 80th birthday.  So I had to make her some of her favorite cookies!!!

These are so simple, and so good, and have a tendency to disappear quickly!


1 c. white sugar
1 c. corn syrup
1/4 c. butter
1 c. peanut butter
6 c. corn flakes
Bring sugar &  syrup to a boil. Remove from heat & add butter & peanut butter. Melt, pour over cornflakes. Mix together gently. Spoon onto wax paper. Makes about 50 cookies, depending on how many don't make it to the wax paper.

I like adding some chocolate chips to half of the mix.

Meanwhile, we're having a cold snap here in Tucson - only made it to mid-90s today, after we tied a record of 39 consecutive days of 100+ degrees!

The cactus are loving the weather, putting out gorgeous flowers, while most civilized plants are wilting.  

Saw this bumper sticker at the grocery the other day.
