Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Who can resist a good peanut butter cookie?  I can’t, that’s for sure.  They make me feel like a kid again.  (This is increasingly important, because I am celebrating another birthday this weekend – eek!)  This particular recipe is fantastic.  In fact, it will be my new standard for peanut butter cookies.  The peanut butter […]

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies

I’m normally super organized about making the weekly menu, writing out the shopping list, and then doing a quick inventory check before we go shopping to make sure I don’t buy items we already have.  Apparently though, my eyes are blind to oatmeal when I do my inventory check.  We end up buying it only […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Ganache Sandwich Cookies

This week Ben had his end of the year parent night at school, where families come to see all the great work their kids have done.  The first grade classes do this cute thing called the “Reading Cafe”, where each student dresses up complete with an apron, order pad, and tray holding a few books […]

Peanut Butter Cup Surprise Cookies

This was by far my favorite goody that I baked during my recent all-day baking extravaganza with friends, but unfortunately I did not post about that batch because they were very unattractive!  However, they tasted SO good and had such potential to look adorable I knew I needed to make them again soon to share […]

Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

Last night was a relaxing rainy Friday evening at home, perfect for baking cookies. Unfortunately, by the time I had gotten all the ingredients, I was too exhausted to bake since I had woken up at 4:15 am. Luckily, this morning has been a relaxing rainy Saturday morning so I didn’t miss my chance 🙂 […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Biscotti

In my house, holiday baking has become quite the production.  It requires a huge amount of time, energy, and organization.  I tend to make about five different treats to include in the bags for the sake of variety.  Then there is always the matter of making enough batches of each item so that every goody […]

Kitchen Sink Cookies

A funny name for a cookie, right?  But it is fitting – these are the kind of cookies you mix in all sorts of things, whatever you have on hand and what strikes your fancy – you know, everything but the kitchen sink!  No doubt you’ve seen some variation of these cookies before.  I’ve seen […]

Salted Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

The sweet-salty combo has long been a favorite of many, many people.  Why do you think peanut butter and chocolate are such a perfect pair?  Yet I’ll admit that when I saw these salted chocolate chunk cookies, I was a bit hesitant.  I suppose my palate is not as sophisticated as some, but I just […]

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Remember when I mentioned operation: use up the excessive amount of oatmeal I have bought?  Yeah, I’m still working on that.  But you know what – now I’ve created the opposite problem!  I’ve found so many great oatmeal recipes that I’m going to end up buying more after it’s all gone so I can try […]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Shortbread

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are about as simple as it gets, right?  Not something someone can really mess up?  Well, I thought so too, but I have come to realize that it is trickier than you might think.  You see, I have discovered that I like my PB&J just so – the ratio of […]
