Grab the peanuts! Time to bake, a batch of double peanut cookies.

I grabbed a bag of chocolate covered peanuts, from the store. I had planned on using them, in a recipe. On the way home, I couldn’t help myself. I tore open the bag, and grabbed a handful. I regret, nothing! Anyway… this behavior continued, throughout the week. I stopped myself, from eating the rest of them. I was able to save, 1 cup. I had exactly 1 cup of roasted peanuts, in the pantry. I combined them, to make these cookies. If you like peanuts, you will like these cookies.

Kid approved cookies…

Landon(5 year old): “What kind of cookies did you make, Mom?”

Me: “Double peanut cookies.”

Landon: “Oh, can I try one?”

Me: “Yes, of course. Tell me what you think. Pick the one you want” 

I hold out, the cookie sheet. Landon looks at each cookie, trying to make a decision. Finally, he grabs for one.  

Landon (Takes a bite): “Mmmm..mmm”

Me: “Are they good? Do you like them?”

Landon: “No, I don’t like them… I love them! These are so good! Good job, Mom!”

Me (smiling): “Glad you like them.” 

Landon: “Can I have another one, please?”
