Bake 52: Week 8

Peanut Butter Cookies
At 6:00 a.m this morning when my husbands alarm went off, another alarm went off in my head that said, "you forgot to post!".  I could say that the holiday threw me off or that my daughter staying home sick consumed my time or that I'm trying to hurry and read a book before book club, or that after I got home last night from RS I was having a mild anxiety attack after talking about 72 hour kits and earthquakes and realized my kits were expired a few years ago and that my 3year-old's still had size12 month sleepers in it and that he probably wouldn't drink the expired formula to save his life! (That was the longest run-on sentence I have ever written).  The truth is, Michelle (from our baking group) even reminded me last night and I plain forgot as I snuggled with my husband for an episode of Psyche.

Moving on to the cookies.  I actually don't have a lot to say - about the cookies.  I didn't find anything special about this recipe.  It was good, but nothing "wow'ed" me.  I cooked one batch a little too long because they didn't look done, but they turned out too crunchy.  Sticking to the right baking time left chewier, softer cookies, which everyone like.  Especially since I dressed them up with chocolate because Peanut Butter and Chocolate should never be apart.  I think the extra cup of nuts finely chopped was not needed for taste or calories.  My family love the big size of cookie three tablespoons of dough made.  Jennifer O. was our host this week and you can find the recipe HERE.


  1. What a great idea to add chocolate. I will have to try that next time.

  2. I love the chocolate idea too! Glad you got to post even without 72 hour kits. ;)

  3. I thought your longest run-on sentence was great. We could all probably add something to that. Life is crazy. Your cookies look yummy. Great idea with the chocolate on top!
