What's Cooking Wednesday


Today's Recipe:
Peanut Butter Cookies

I have this love for peanut butter and chocolate---probably why I like Reese's cups so much.  Growing up, my family always loved the Peanut Butter Blossoms.....you know the peanut butter cookies rolled in white sugar and then a Hershey kiss is placed on top?

Well, I saw this picture floating around on Pinterest.

  And I thought, I HAVE to have those.  Well, actually my first idea was---Why didn't I think of that?  
I mean a cookie, and a Reese's treat?  Uhm, hello.  Yes please.

After reading the recipe, I thought, uhm....I'm too tired  to ball and roll my cookies in sugar BUT I HAVE. TO. HAVE. A. SWEET. TREAT!!

Last week I made one of my hubby's friends some AWESOME peanut butter chocolate chip cookies using a pudding mix.....so yummy.  SOO....I combined the two ideas and came up with my own.

That's right folks----These heavenly treats can be put into a cookie!  OHH MY GOODNESS!
   Peanut butter, Reese's hearts, pudding mix, YUMMY GOODNESS!

I've noticed that adding pudding mixes to cookie recipes have made them a little softer, but the dough seems thicker.  I altered a recipe a bit and added about 2 Tbs. milk to my dough.  Here's a picture of the dough...it is thick. 

  
I use a cookie scoop for my cookies, but then I sometimes go back and roll them too.  It makes it easier to flatten them, I think.
  
Bake them for about 8-10 minutes and top with a heart. 


I took them to work today.  I didn't need them sitting around the house.  Around 10:00 this morning (school takes up at 8), I went to go grab me one (ya know, thought a little bit of chocolate would make this long day better)---but they were all gone.  Found out at lunch time today, that they were all gone before school started.   At least they liked them, right? :)

I was told to sell them :)  but I thought I'd share for the Wednesday recipe instead.

  7. Love the idea of the heart chocolates for valentine's day. Have always seen the kisses so love the heart twist.
    We look forward to seeing what you're cookin on Wednesdays. Love the recipes that have actually been tried and are delish rather than in a book that's all purdy when looks nothing like the picture when you attempt it!

    See you next week :)
