Happy Wednesday and last day of January! Are you ready for February? I’m ready to cruise into Spring. No more Winter weather please!
My kitchen was fairly quiet over the weekend. Shocking, right. It was rainy and dreary here for part of Saturday and most of Sunday so I just embraced cooking laziness. I got to do a little shopping, go out to dinner, watch a couple movies, visit with friends. It was lovely!
I did make a couple of whole wheat pizzas on Friday night – one chicken pesto and one cheese. They were good, not great. I think I’ll stick with all-purpose or bread flour doughs for pizza night. I get that whole wheat is better for you but it didn’t taste as good. I’ll keep working on it though. If you have a good recipe you like, send it on over! What have you been cooking and baking lately?
Would you agree with me when I say chocolate and peanut butter are a match made in heaven? Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Buckeye fudge, peanut butter brownies, chocolate peanut butter pie…The list is endless!
Today I’m sharing a Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookie Recipe. I found inspiration for these cookies from America’s Test Kitchen. I follow them on Instagram and they post daily recipes. For a short time you can access the recipes without a subscription. I love that! Their recipe is all peanut butter so I decided to add some contrast and made the cookies chocolate and peanut butter. FYI – they are not a chewy cookie but a crispy one. (Don’t worry! I will be making a chewy cookie version and an ice cream version for Summer.) They are a delicious balance of peanut butter and chocolate and No mixer required for this recipe. I used 2-3 medium size bowls, a whisk and a spatula. The girls and I ate ours with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Give them a try and let me know your thoughts!
