Peanut Butter Cookies

I made these cookies a while ago and they’re delicious! These are more like shortbread cookies but with a hint of peanut butter. You can taste the peanut butter (of course!) but it’s not overwhelming… they taste even better with a cold glass of milk.

You’ll need:

  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla
  • 1 1/4 Cup Sifted Flour
  • 3/4 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375°F.  Mix butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, sugar, egg, and vanilla. After mixing the first six ingredients, add the rest (Flour, Baking Soda, and Salt) and mix well. When the dough is ready, roll into balls and press down with a fork dipped in sugar. Place on a cookie sheet (non greased). I like to cover the cookie sheet with foil. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Faux Fudge

Today, I made fudge for the first time. I’ve always wanted to learn how to make it and I found an easy recipe online. This took me about 20 minutes to make and then 2 hours for it to be ready.

You’ll need:

  • 1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 12 oz Bag Semi Sweet Chocolate Chip
  • 1 6 oz Bag Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 Stick Butter
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla

Instructions:

In a saucepan, add condensed milk, chips, and butter. Cook on medium low heat, stirring quite often to prevent burning. After it melts, remove from heat, add vanilla, and stir. Cover a 10×10 pan in foil and grease with butter. Spread mixture on pan, smooth it out, and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours. When ready, remove the foil and cut the fudge in small pieces.

*This ended up being more like frozen chocolate instead of fudge. Still have to perfect my fudge making skills, but it was yummy and easy to make. Original recipe found on Pinterest.
