Who would like to sample my supply?

Hello dark fuzzy picture! Part of me is sad that these pictures didn't come out well. But another part of me is secretly glad. Because if I were to offer you cookies after showing you this picture, you probably would say "thanks, but no." Which is perfect because that leaves more for me. These cookies have oh so many hidden surprises. And even if I had taken a remarkable picture, you still wouldn't be able to see their hidden wonders.

To begin, I started with this concept. Except I decided that instead of the chocolate cookie, it would be incredibly incredible if I made peanut butter cookies with a peanut buttery inside. (get it? Incredibly incredible? Peanut butter cookies with peanut butter filling? I am just too damn clever for words)

But oh no my friends, I didn't stop there. (Is anyone else catching my "mess with a good thing" trend this week?) Instead I thought of another beloved cookie and decided to add it to the mix for good measure. See snickernoodles are fine and all, but they're a little meh. It's not the cinnamon and sugar's fault. The poor cinnamon and sugar work their little butts off trying to add flavor and spice, but it's the bland dough that works against them. So I decided to give cinnamon and sugar a fighting change and add them to a delicious flavorful cookie instead.

The result? I froze most of these cookies once they cooled. And after having 3 cookies, Thatboy, who doesn't like peanut butter cookies, went searching in the freezer for the rest. I hate when I make things he "hates" and then he ends up eating them all.

Snickerdoodle Peanut Butter Cookies
  1. Preheat oven to 375. Combine cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
  2. Combine peanut butter and powdered sugar and roll the mixture into 24 small balls.
  3. Divide the peanut butter dough into 24 even pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and flatten.
  4. Place peanut butter ball in the center of flattened dough and roll dough around peanut butter ball.
  5. Roll each ball in cinnamon/sugar. Place balls 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Flatten balls with glass dipped in cinnamon/sugar mixture. Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon sugar mixture over cookies.
  6. Bake 9-10 minutes, let cool 1 minute and then cool on cooling rack.

  1. That comment about Thatboy eating thing he detests cracked me up. :) And I agree about Snickerdoodles--these look good.

  2. *sigh* If only I liked peanut butter cookies. *making faces*
