THE FIVE-CENT COOKIE

To carry through the Senegalese atmosphere, make a simplified version of the Cinq Centimes (the Five-Cent Cookie) you find in the market places of Dakar. Serve them later in the evening after your Senegalese dinner.

3-inch sugar cookies

peanut butter

coarsely chopped peanuts

Purchase 3-inch sugar cookies at the grocery or bakery. Spread each with peanut butter within a half inch of the edge. Sprinkle each with coarsely chopped peanuts. Arrange attractively on doily-lined platters and pass them to your guests. The youngsters will also adore these cookies.
