Peanut Butter Brookie

Today’s recipe is from Stef, who loves to bake and share recipes on Canarsie Cookies.  This “Peanut Butter Brookie” is one of her creations, and I was lucky to be on the receiving end of a half dozen. Stef makes her brookies (half brownie, half cookie) with organic peanut butter cookie dough and brownie batter […]

Reese's Minis Peanut Butter Bars

If you love peanut butter bars but have had bad experiences with ones that are too dry, try this recipe! As of today, it’s my favorite. These are dense, moist and fun to look at thanks to the scattering of Reese’s Minis and Reese’s Pieces on top. However, if you don’t want to deal with […]

Tracys Special Scotcheroos

Scotcheroos with Special K cereal

I was craving Scotcheroos last week, so I went to H.E.B., gathered most of the ingredients, then discovered that the store was completely out of Nestle butterscotch morsels. After being helped by a friendly employee who was sympathetic towards my predicament and offered several substitution ideas even though she’d never tasted Scotcheroos, I put all […]

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip Bars

Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Bars

Thanks for all the suggestions on what brands and what type of almond milk to buy. I’ve officially finished the first carton and am ready for more, but until then I’m still stuck in this brownie/blondie mode. Now I did make a marble cake yesterday, but it was such a convoluted and weird recipe I’m […]

Sweet & Salty Peanut Bars

sweet and salty peanut butter bars

This was literally a clean out the pantry recipe. I had about a handful of peanuts, some miniature boxes of granola, and a cup of white chips, all of which needed to be used and all of which could be found in this one, easy, bar cookie. Adapted from a book I bought years ago […]

O’ Henry Bars

O Henry

Today’s cookie was inspired by a candy bar introduced in the 1920s called Oh Henry! Made with peanuts, caramel and fudge, some say Oh Henry! was named for a boy who frequented the Williams Candy factory in Chicago, where the bar was invented. Nobody really knows, but claims that it was named after the author […]

Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Bars

Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Bars

These are called Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Bars and the recipe is actually very, very simple. You bake a thin layer of brownie, pour on a mixture of condensed milk and peanut butter (the condensed milk flavor is not strong), top it with milk chocolate and peanut butter chips, bake, cool, then drizzle on more of the melted chips. The recipe is very streamlined

Peanut Butter Mud Hen Bars

Peanut Butter Mud Hens

So I’ve learned a few things this week — mostly about bar cookies with meringue and brown sugar on top. First I re-discovered an old recipe called Halfway Cookies where you spread dough across a pan, press in some chocolate chips, then spread the top with a mixture of egg white and brown sugar. I […]
