Home Made Peanut Butter Cups

Home Made Peanut Butter Cups

Not long ago I took a meal to my friend Heather, who just had a new baby, and it was such a disaster, I promised I would bring her another meal this week to make up for it. I had a delicious fool-proof dinner in mind, but I was all out of ideas for dessert, so I turned to my pinterest board! I found a delicious recipe for chocolate peanut butter bars that I had wanted to try for a while. This is one of those recipes that is bitter sweet to discover. It’s SO quick & easy to make, requires just a few ingredients I always have on hand, and is so totally delicious, that it’s a problem. ‘I’m glad I discovered it. I’m not glad I discovered it. I’m glad I discovered it….’ (i’m picking daisy petals here). I made a huge pan, gave half to Heather and kept half for my family- and by the end of the day they were ALL gone. I don’t know how that happened. I must have accidentally sucked them up…. when I was doing the vacuuming…. in my fridge….??!

Sarah’s Shortbread Recipe

To me there are few cookies more Christmassy than shortbread, so I thought I’d make up a big batch, and wrap them up really pretty to go in the young women’s christmas bags on sunday. I researched recipes for quite some time, and settled on two, which I thought looked really awesome! They only had 3-4 ingredients, and one only baked for 12 minutes, so this was definitely the type of cookie I wanted to make for a big group of 20 girls! I put my babes to bed around 8, and began working on them.

Perfect Snickerdoodles

Something I have noticed about Americans is their obsession with cinnamon!… Cinnamon Rolls, Cinnamon chewing gum, cinnamon cereal, cinnamon toothpaste, cinnamon candies, they even put cinnamon & sugar on toast! Growing up in England I can probably count on one hand how many times I ever had something cinnamon flavoured- maybe because it was hard to find, and maybe because I didn’t like it all that much. Then after tasting Snickerdoodles, I completely understood the obsession!
