Peanut Butter

Peanut Butter is a staple in almost all homes. Cheap, smooth, or crunchy…peanut butter is a versatile food to be used in savory or sweet dishes. There is the classic Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich and also the classic peanut butter cookies. But why not widen your peanut butter horizons with our Szechuan Peanut Pasta or in our Golden Bars Dessert! There is so much you can do with peanut butter to add flavor and texture to sweet or savory meals. Make sure nobody is allergic though to peanuts before making any of the following recipes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Puffy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Puffy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (1) Peanut Butter and Chocolate belong together. The perfect pairing. The ideal match. Think bread & butter, toast & jam, tea & honey, PB & J…you get the picture. I am always baking up easy cookie recipes for my DH. It is his go to sweet snack at home. He loves warm cookies and an ice cold beer. Yeah, definitely different, but I still love him! Every now and then he gets on this kick about losing weight, so no more cookies. Bummer, I actually enjoy baking him cookies. So I decided to create some mini cookies. Same thing but the size is thoroughly deceiving. You think you are being ‘good’ by eating smaller cookies only to never realize you ate double the amount in regular size (insert evil laugh). Needless to say, he loved them!

Delicious Rating: I have baked and eaten a lot of peanut butter cookies in my time but these take first place. They have a nicely crisp bottom and puff up with a full warm delicious middle. The mini chocolate chips are a perfect pairing for these mini cookies. They are so addictive though because they are small. If you want bigger cookies, go for it, just adjust baking times accordingly. This cookie dough also freezes perfectly. Check out the photo guide for the easy instructions.

Gingered Peanut Sauce

Gingered Peanut Sauce This really looks like nothing but believe me when I say that it is some of the best sauce I have ever made and eaten in my life! Over-exaggeration? Hardly. This stuff is really good and to top it off it is a quick and easy recipe with almost all things on hand in your pantry and fridge.

Delicious Rating: I love this sauce. I eat it by the spoon usually for awhile until I realize it goes with the rest of dinner. Pair the sauce with pasta, spring rolls, chicken…whatever you want to put a peanut ginger sauce with, do it. I have another recipe for a spicy peanut sauce (I can’t find it of course) but you can totally spice this sauce up by adding in some chili flakes before blending. Let me know what you choose to pair your sauce with!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

I have never really been addicted to cookies. Maybe the filling of Oreo Cookies, if that counts, but homemade baked cookies never really do it for me. I thought it would change when I tried the cookie dough of the Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chip Cookies. It was super delicious, I couldn’t stop eating the dough until I remembered the raw eggs and that I had to have a certain amount for company. Anyways, baked ‘em up and no, just didn’t do it for me.

Delicious Rating: Super easy recipe to prepare the dough and bake, no special instructions. The cookies are good. Just because I wasn’t addicted to them doesn’t mean they weren’t tasty. My company that they were served to loved them. I added Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips but they didn’t stand out as much as I thought they would, neither did the oatmeal, perhaps both were at odds. Try using other chips like butterscotch, chocolate, or even a chocolate mint…yum!

Chewy Peanut Butter Hershey’s Kiss Blossoms

If you plan on making these, here is your warning: These Chewy Peanut Butter Hershey’s Kiss Blossoms are Extremely Addictive. Eat with Caution!

I must be on a peanut butter high  or a cookie addiction after making so many types of Peanut Butter Cookies and just plain cookies. I know you must be tired of all these easy cookie recipes. But nothing beats the best peanut cookie except a peanut cookie with a Chocolate Kiss on it! It is the perfect blend of chocolate and peanut butter. I love how the Hershey’s Kiss doesn’t melt but softens and warms. Mmmhhhh…delicious! Plus they are so cute and miniature that you have to eat at least 10!

Delicious Rating: Simple to bake and delicious to eat. I make these for parties or as a finger dessert. They always go so fast! You have the option to roll the dough balls in sugar or not. I do half and half. Both are equally good and you really don’t need the extra sugar! Be prepared to eat a lot of extra Hershey’s Kisses when unwrapping each one!
