Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

A friend brought me some really cute cookies with a Peanut Butter Cup in the middle.  They were so tasty!! Yum!( Thanks Emily) I have craved them ever since.  I meant to get the recipe from her but unfortunately kept forgetting. When I decided to try them out the other day I didn't want to bug her, so I tried to figure it out on my own... Here's what I came up with.
Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2Tbs milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
48 mini Peanut Butter Cups, unwrapped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream butter, peanut butter and sugars together.  Add egg, milk and vanilla. Beat well. Gradually add flour, soda and salt. Mix well.
Grease small muffin tin.  Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in white sugar. I used a small dough scoop, dropped the dough into the sugar and lightly rolled it in the sugar.  Place one dough ball into each muffin space.
Bake for 8 minutes.  Remove from the oven and press a peanut butter cup into the center of each cookie.
Return to oven and bake 2 more minutes.  Remove from oven and let sit for a couple minutes.  Use a spoon to gently lift the cookies out of the pan. 
Makes 4 dozen.
I ran out of peanut butter cups and had some little Twix bars. I cut them in half and used them in place of the peanut butter cups for my last 12 cookies.  They weren't as nice looking, but tasted great!! 
These did not last long in our house!!

  6. My mom makes these but uses peanut butter cookie dough from the store. Rolls them in balls and cooks them like the package says (in mini muffin tin). Then when she takes them out she presses peanut butter cup in them. SO easy and great!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
