House Elves Welcome back the Hufflepuffs!

The House Elves wanted to welcome all the Hufflepuffs to the shiny, new common room! This term the House Elves are sharing tasty recipes with us. There is still time to vote in the House Elf Poll if you haven’t yet.

Also, if you have a favorite recipe - of any kind! - please PM Yarnvista! The House Elves really want to be able to share beloved recipes - they don’t have to be fancy or even be totally homemade. The House Elves will credit you with the recipe and I bet they can convince the ratties to give you extra love and kisses, if you like :)

So, for the start of term the House Elves decided to share

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk
40 miniature chocolate covered peanut butter cups, unwrapped (tip: put the uwrapped cups in the fridge or freezer as you are prepping the rest of the cookies)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda; set aside.
Cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk. Add the flour mixture; mix well.
Shape into 40 balls and place each into an ungreased mini muffin pan.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball. Cool and carefully remove from pan.
