Peanut butter cookies to die for? Maybe.

This is why I suck at WeWa.

It's a week night, you would think I would have something better to do than to bake a batch of Peanut butter cookies. Well really I do, but this recipe was so easy I couldn't resist.

I came across this recipe on my favorite food blog, Bakerella. I love her site, I love her recipes. I need to stay away. But really who can resist a cookie recipe with only 5 ingredients.

Peanut Butter Cookies with only 5 ingredients

1 cup Peanut butter
1/2 sugar
1 egg
4 oz semi sweet chocolate melted
1/2 chopped fine, peanuts

Heat oven to 325.
Mix PB, sugar and egg until thoroughly mixed. Chill for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, roll dough into 18 balls, place on cookie sheet, flatten with a fork dipped in sugar.

Bake 18-20 minutes.

Remove from oven cool 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack. Cool completely.
Melt chocolate dip side of each cookie in chocolate then in nuts. Chill 30 minutes. Try to resist eating the whole batch.

Happy Birthday Amber!

I wanted to give a special shout out! Amber is 15 today! WoooHooooo!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Labor Day!

I sure that everyone in the country is off today (well, at least everyone in my family) except me and my staff. We have to work on Labor day. We actually work everyday (yup, even Christmas) but it isn't a holiday for us. So here I am at work, blogging instead of working. I don't have much to say so it won't take long.

I have joined a group called the Daring Bakers. It is a group of people, that partcipate in monthly baking challenges set forth by hosts chosen from the groups blogroll. I am so excited. I have been reading about their challenges and studying the recipes of the things they have baked in the past. But I finally joined and September will be my first time participating. But I can't tell you what it is until the end of the month.'s a secret.

I had a tough weekend with my sugar. I didn't watch what I ate at all. And I had a bad day yesterday because my blood sugar got to low and I ate way to late. So I felt like crap all day while I was out shoe shopping with my kids. But we managed to get shoes and the rest of the stuff my 5 yr old needs to start school Thursday. He is actually excited this year. I guess Kindergarten is more exciting than Pre-K. Oh to be 5 again.
