Bite Sized Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Peanut butter cups are one of those candies that has such a great ratio of salty-to-sweet that they are quite addictive. I find this to be particularly true of peanut butter cups made with dark chocolate, where you get the salty, the sweet and a rich, slightly bitter cocoa note. I’m a particular fan of the Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, but as ... Read More »

PB&J Whoopie Pies

PB&J Whoopie Pie

Soft, cake-like whoopie pies are so much fun to eat that they make me feel like a kid again – even though I didn’t really eat whoopie pies as a kid. That sense comes from the fact that whoopie pies are finger food and are often a bit mess to eat, as filling ineviatably squishes out from one side or the other and gets onto ... Read More »

Peanut Butter and Honey Bar Cookies

Peanut Butter and Honey Bars

Peanut butter and honey are a wonderful combination. I like honey drizzled over hot toast that is spread with peanut butter, honey that is mixed with peanut butter to create a salty-sweet dip for apples and the combination of honey and peanut butter in frozen pops. They also work well together in baked goods like these Peanut Butter and Honey Bars. The bars are easy ... Read More »

Double Peanut Butter Quick Bread

I’ve had an extra bag of peanut butter chips sitting in my pantry, just waiting for a great recipe to go into.

Trader Joe's Peanut Butter Chips

Peanut butter chips are an easy way to add some extra peanut butter flavor to a batch of cookies or brownies. Trader Joe’s Peanut Butter Chips are a new item that TJ’s is stocking for the holiday baking season (and possibly longer, depending on how popular they are with consumers). I like peanut butter chips because I am a big peanut butter fan, but they’re ... Read More »

Vanilla Cashew Butter Cookies

Vanilla Cashew Butter Cookies

Peanut butter is, hands down, the most common type of nut butter out there and it is used in all kinds of recipes, from ice creams to cookies to cakes. Other nuts can be used to make nut butter, as well, and they are just as versatile, although they lend a completely different flavor to a recipe. Cashew butter, for instance, is a mild nut ...

Jif Cashew Butter, reviewed

Jif Cashew Butter

Peanut butter is the go-to nut butter for most people, but any kind of nut can be turned into a creamy nut butter beacause nuts are so high in fat. About 10 years ago, it would be uncommon to see nut butters that were made with almonds, cashews or sunflower seeds anywhere but health food stores, but these days they are so mainstream that even ...

Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies

Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter cookies are delicious just as they are – and that is probably why people don’t tend to stuff as many mix-ins into peanut butter cookie dough as they do with chocolate chip cookie dough. But peanut butter is very versatile and can go with all kinds of other flavors – especially if one of those flavors happens to be chocolate. These Loaded Peanut ... Read More »
