Peanut Butter Chunk

One of our Sunday rituals is a trip to Trader Joe’s, where we scout out cheap wines, see what’s new and load up on favorites.  Fuzz likes TJ’s lentils, Todd’s pick is the frozen roasted corn, and my personal favorite is Trader Joe’s Salted Peanut Butter.  It took me a while to get used to […]

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

This weekend I did a little experiment. Instead of using 1 cup of peanut butter in my usual Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies, I left out the baking soda and replaced 1 cup of regular peanut butter with a 15 oz package of Jif Whips. If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s a lighter, airier version […]

For many years, my favorite chunky peanut butter cookies were these Get Well Soon Cookies; but this morning I was tempted to try another version. I’ve seen the recipe for “Blowouts” in a few places including Midwest Living, where the key add-ins are Reese’s Miniatures and honey roasted peanuts. As usual, I didn’t have any […]

Double Peanut Butter Cookies

If you like peanut butter cookies but find the traditional criss-cross recipes to be a little dry, here’s a recipe that might win you over.  Like the million dollar Bake-Off  “Double Delight Cookies made with refrigerated peanut butter dough and filled with peanut butter, this version is similar, but made with a scratch dough containing […]

Jumbo Peanut Butter Cookies with Brickle

I’m suffering from post-holiday malaise this week, so instead of apologizing for yet another peanut butter cookie, I’m just going to say that peanut butter was exactly was exactly what the doctor ordered (even though I do have too many peanut butter cookies here) and that this cookie is special.  Or at least I think […]

peanut butter and rye cookies

After baking rye bread a few months ago, I started thinking of other ways to use the flour.  Cookies were the obvious choice, but would it work and would it even be worth using in cookies?  Since one of our favorite flavor combinations is peanut butter on rye, I decided to try incorporating it into […]

oatmeal cookies

Today’s recipe is from a reader named Bonnie who sent it to me with a note saying the cookies were her husband’s favorite. An endorsement from a family member is always a good thing, but what I really liked was the fact she used healthy ingredients. Instead of butter she used oil, in place of […]
