There is supposedly a hurricane heading near where I live later this week. I don't believe we will see any of the hurricane, but I believe it will be very wet. We have already received lots of rain the last couple of weeks.
I'm usually not very prepared for storms. I usually just cross my fingers that the electricity doesn't go out. I have purchased a case of bottled water, I own a flash light, and I have trail mix. I think I am good to go.
Worse case scenario is I'll be reading in the dark with a flash light while eating trail mix. Luckily it is not winter. Loosing power in September is a very different thing than loosing power in the winter.
I made these cookies a couple of weeks ago for a pot luck. I had bought the bag of Reese's baking cups and Reese's pieces candy because I'm a sucker for "new" products. I have since bought another bag. I really like chocolate and peanut butter.
I believe I have used this recipe before. It makes a quality cookie. I found this classic peanut butter cookie recipe on Allrecipes.com. I made it as directed except I added a 8.5 ounce bag of Reese's baking cups and Reese's pieces candy.
The ingredients are 1 cup butter, 1 cup crunchy peanut butter, 1 cup white sugar, 1 cup packed brown sugar, 2 eggs, 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda, and 8.5 ounces Reese's baking cups and Reese's pieces candy.
I creamed together the butter and peanut butter. I then creamed in the brown sugar and white sugar. I then beat in the eggs one at a time.
I mixed in the salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
I stirred in the Reese's baking cups and Reese's pieces candy.
I refrigerated the dough over night. The recipe directs you to refrigerate the dough for at least an hour. I then put about a tablespoon and a half of dough in mounts onto a baking sheet lined with a baking mat. I baked the cookies for 375 for about 10 minutes
I let the cookies cool a little on the pan before placing them on a wire rack to cool completely.
This is a wonderful recipe. The cookies are chewy and tender.
It has a strong and delicious peanut flavor. The cookies were sweet and soft.
The texture was perfect. The baking cups and candies were a tasty addition too. They added extra peanut flavor and an extra jolt of sugar.
The cups were gooey, chocolatey and melted. Candy was a little crunchy. I think the candy additions made the cookies a little more special and pretty.
It was a great cookie recipe to begin with, and the extra candy addition only made them better.
It was a tasty recipe, and I will use it again. I will also bake with these baking cups and candy as well, seeing as I bough another bag of them.
