Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

chocolate peanut butter cookies

My daughter Geneviève is finally home. She flew from Ottawa on Dec. 18. She had not problem getting to Comox before the big storm. Now I'll be home for Christmas with my 3 kids. My husband is still in Africa and will join us Dec. 29.

Santa was really nice and delivered, at my door, a brand new KitchenAid Stand Mixer. So we have been baking lot's of cookies since Geneviève came home.

I saw this recipe on Joe's Blog and wanted to try it for a while. Since we were in the middle of a snow storm and the kids were outside cleaning the driveway, I decided to make them a surprise.

Wow these cookies turned out very good. We've been eating them, non stop, since yesterday.

Peanut Butter Munchies

  21. happy 2009 helene! i can'tthink of a better way to celebrate than with my 2 favorite things - chocolate and peanut butter. i'm sure you'd say hanging w/ your daughter and the rest of the kids/husband is better, though.

  22. You will wonder how you ever lived your life without a stand mixer. I don't even bake but I still use it constantly. Now of course you are going to get addicted to the attachments.
