3 July 2009 – Groundnut Paste Biscuits

Today I made groundnut paste buscuits (peanut butter cookies) in my coal pot oven.  Nathaniel and Richard came by to help me. Nathaniel is a recent SHS graduate who lives in my compound. Richard is his friend. Nathaniel asked me how I would bake the cookies in the US. I described an electric oven and stove. He said “Madam Vic if I didn’t know you I would call you a LIAR!  What you are saying sounds so fantastic.” It reminded me of the quote from a sci fi author “All advanced technology  seems like magic to the uninitiated.”  So true.

Though some were burned on the bottom the cookie were good.
