Peanut Sticks

Since I am enjoying the charms of the Peach State, Hotlanta and a state known for its nuts peanuts–how about this recipe for an interesting new peanut cookie recipe.

Peanut Sticks

Batter:
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup boiling milk
1 1/2 cups sifted flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

Frosting:
2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons sweet cream
2 cups peanuts, ground fine

Blend eggs, sugar, and butter. Add milk and stir until smooth. Sift flour and baking powder and stir into mixture. Divide batter into two 8 inch square cake pans, which have been buttered. Bake at 375 degrees 200-25 minutes. Then cool and cut into one inch by two inch sticks.

To make frosting, cream butter, add sugar and cream and blend. Spread frosting on all sides of sticks and roll in ground peanuts.
