Peanut Butter Cookie Cups-A mini peanut butter cup surrounded by peanut butter cookie, a double treat!
It happens every year. I get into the Holiday “funk” right before Thanksgiving. Why is it that they mush 3 great holidays into a 60 day period? Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. All great holidays on their own. Poor Thanksgiving this year isn’t even getting the time of day, coming so close after Halloween. I’m so glad we don’t have one of those huge get togethers with 25 other people, all trying to cram around a few tables, no room to move, and by the end of the meal, everyone has forgotten why they were really thankful to be there in the first place.
Don’t get me wrong. We still do the big meal, Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, beans, corn, rolls and whatever else the hubby finally decides he wants. And of course dessert. That we have about 3 hours after the meal. It’s me, hubby, the kids and my mom. we all fit nicely around the table, we’ll all be able to talk to each other and remember what we’re thankful for.
As soon as all the dishes are washed and the turkey has been striped for meat with the carcass on the stove simmering up a beautiful broth, Christmas is on. My tree will be set up in the living room, waiting patiently for decorations, hubby will start setting up his village. The stockings will be hung and over the weekend, we’ll get the outside decorations up.
You all remember my trauma as a child about Thanksgiving and dessert at my Grandma’s. For this reason, I always make sure I have an abundance of kid friendly choices at my house. I’ll pull out some Chocolate Chip cookie dough out of the freezer and bake up a few trays, Turtle Bark will be present, I’m trying out a new fudge recipe tomorrow and these Peanut Butter Cookie Cups.
Kids like food with candy in it. Fast and easy to make and only one round in the oven. I was done from start to finish in less than 30 minutes.
