On Sunday we packed the kids in the car and went to get ready for a long day in the car. As soon as we pulled out of the garage I realized I didn’t have my wallet. After searching the house frantically while the kids were getting extremely cranky, I came up empty handed. Grrrr. We got on the road and it was amazing. We drove through Manning Park and the mountains and rivers were breathtaking.
We had instructions on where to go but decided to plug in the address into the GPS. We drove up and down the highway looking for an address that wasn’t there. It was ridiculous. It was hot and we were frustrated and lost. The email said it was easy to find. I turned to the Mr and said there was NO way we were that blind that we couldnt’ find it. We decided that we should drive through town and listen to instructions so carefully laid out for us. Guess what??? We found it. It was right where she said it would be.
We found it. It was right where she said it would be. Imagine that. I love computers and smart phones but sometimes just listening to someone regardless of what the internet tells you is better. Lesson learned, don’t believe everything you read on the internet.
The reason we spent all day Sunday in the car was to pick up this little guy.
Everyone this is Max the newest member of our family. I can’t tell you how excited I am to have him.
Now let’s talk cookies. I wanted to just make peanut butter pretzels bites but it was too messy so I decided to throw mini peanut butter cups and pretzels inside a soft peanut butter cookie. It was the right decision. Oh man was it ever.
The crunch and salt from the pretzels is perfect with the melty chocolate and gooey peanut butter. Then you surround that with the best peanut butter cookie EVAH and you have a winner. I could totally go for now right now but they are all gone.
Peanut Butter Cup Pretzel Stuffed Cookies – makes 16 cookies
1 c all natural peanut butter
3/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c granulated sugar
2 tbs all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
12 mini peanut butter cups
24 mini twisted pretzels
Preheat oven to 350 F. Move rack to the middle of the oven. Line cookie sheet with parchment.
Mix peanut butter and sugars until well blended. Crack egg in a small bowl and beat. Mix into the peanut butter mixture. Sprinkle flour, salt and baking powder over top and mix in.
Take one teaspoon of dough and flatten out in your hand. Place one pretzel, then a peanut buttercup and then top it off with another pretzel. Then fold up the sides of your cookie dough. It won’t cover your entire sandwich. Now take another teaspoon of dough and cover the top of your cookie. Make sure all your seams are closed. Place on baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake 8 – 10 minutes. Do not over bake.
