Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I don’t actually contribute much to Thanksgiving Day cooking, usually just mashed potatoes. That particular dinner is my husband’s jam. BUT, this year I baked a little goodie for snacking first thing in the morning.

CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES FOR THE WIN.

It did require all caps since they are that freaking good. Probably one of my new favorite cookie recipes. Goes great with milk. 🙂

The batter was incredibly sticky. To the point I had to dust my fork with cocoa powder in order to flatten and achieve the famous criss cross pattern.

Now off to bake some more!

Banana Spice Cookies w/Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting

Here’s what I ended up making for the Super Bowl party. The picture isn’t too pretty because I forgot to take a photo until later after the cookies had been layered in a travel container. They received praises from everyone who tried them so we’ll label this recipe a win!

One thing I will note, don’t try this frosting recipe unless you have a hand mixer OR prepare to pump your muscles up with intense whipping action.

Thick & Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Good morning fellow food fiends! I had a great weekend with my dad and let him picked what I baked since he doesn’t get to enjoy it very often. He choose cookies, but I choose the exact recipe.

These were very good. I recommend reading the entire recipe through before starting. Nothing particularly difficult but I had preheated my oven and then read that I needed to refrigerate the dough for a half hour before I could continue. I found the sweet spot with my ancient oven which was 10 minutes, flatten with spatula and then allow to continue to bake on the hot baking sheet for another 10 minutes. (The recipe makes more cookies than it says. I doubled the recipe and had overflowing plates of cookies.)

Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies

I tried two new recipes this past Fourth of July and was annoyed with both of them. Doesn’t happen often so the fact that I had two less than awesome recipes in a row, had me slapping things around in the kitchen. Both tasted better than they look so that was a small plus.

This recipe requires you to let dough set in the fridge for 30 minutes. 30 minutes did nothing to harden it up. (That’s what she said.) I stuck it in the freezer for 15+ minutes and that seemed to do the trick. EXCEPT, after about 2 minutes of scooping dough, it went right back to being tacky. I was so annoyed that I just started flinging it on the cookie sheet with zero fucks about what it looked like. I was also so annoyed that I didn’t even do the last step of giving it a lemon glaze.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been down and out with a stomach virus the last couple of days. So the last thing I’ve been wanting to do is bake (or read) as everything made me nauseous. But my stomach is finally letting me smell/eat/think about real food finally so I thought I would share one of my favorite recipes that I tried during the holidays: Mint Chocolate Chip cookies.

The BEST mint chocolate chip cookies.

I even got to use cream of tartar for the first time. I felt so fancy.

Molasses Cookies

The night before Christmas Eve, I was up until 1 in the morning baking. To be fair, I had to finish some Christmas shopping after work so that added to the delay.

I have never made molasses cookies before, but I LURVE them. So it seemed a logical option to give it a go.

This recipe was perfect. You don’t get better molasses cookies than this.

The only fault was my own. I didn’t flatten the cookies any when I put them on the baking sheet because they didn’t say to do it in the recipe. The first time I try a recipe, I stick to it exactly. So my cookies were little molasses puff balls, but they were delicious puff balls!
