Welcome Back with Peanut Butter Cookies

Is it really August??! And my last post was in February?? I can't believe how the time has flown by! Please allow me to start of by saying once and for all: I'm So Sorry!!

Well, I suppose this was happens when you are in law school and all of a sudden, you find yourself engaged to a wonderful guy and planning your wedding which will take place over your Christmas break!! THIS Christmas break! I know, I'm crazy :)

But that's no real excuse to neglect my dessert blog. I mean, between February and today, I have probably made, tasted, and gawked at over hundreds of dreamy desserts. Oh and speaking of dreams, I have had plenty, conjuring up recipes and imagining new flavor combinations. But yesterday morning, I wasn't feeling creative. I was just feeling like making some good, old fashioned Peanut Butter cookies. But since I am officially on Bridal-dress-size-alert, I knew I had to try to make them with a little less flour and sugar. So I made them completely without! I first saw this recipe while Paula Deen (of all people) on foodnetwork making these cookies for some ice cream sandwiches. They are called Magical Peanut Butter Cookies and they only have 4 ingredients!!

I've made these cookies several times now and they always turn out great! Since it is so simple, there are so many different things you can do with the recipe: like add chocolate chips, or chopped up honey-roasted peanuts, or dip them in chocolate, or even spread some strawberry jam on the bottom of one and make a sweet little peanut butter and jelly sandwich (which is exactly what I did yesterday)! Try them out and have some fun with the recipe for yourself!

I made a PB cookie w/ no flour once. It was a tad different, but delicious, especially making a jelly sandwich out of them!!!

I am willing to do any combinations like add chocolate chips, or chopped up honey-roasted peanuts. The biscuits should be creamy dessert and want to learn cooking dessert recipes.
