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.
