It goes without saying that weekends at our house are anything but relaxing. We have two active teenagers - need I say more? I was hoping that our schedule would open up a little once wrestling season ended. Quite the opposite has proved to be true, now that we've transitioned from wrestling meets to baseball and soccer games, our schedule just got even a little more chaotic.
Baseball and soccer tournaments and games have absolutely consumed our Spring schedule this year. That means that other things on my usual "to do list" are going to get neglected. My house won't always be dusted, my yard is going to have a few more weeds and my car will definitely not be washed until after the season. (Do those things really matter anyway?)
Both of my kids are natural athletes (A trait that they inherited from their father.) and it's a joy to watch them on the field - in their element. I'm really going to miss it when we don't have anymore meets or games to attend. For now, I'll just be thankful that they're healthy teenagers who love sports. And if it means sacrificing my time to go and cheer them on, it's totally worth it. I can't think of anything better to do with myself or any better way to support my kids.
Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
1 1/4 cups peanuts 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup flour 3 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon baking soda 1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 Tablespoons whole milk (I used 2%)
Place 1 scoop of filling on the bottom of a cookie and top with another cookie.
Gently press cookie until filling spreads to the edges.
These cookies are a big contrast to the traditional peanut butter cookies that I usually make. They're thin and crispy and loaded with peanuts. The smooth, buttery filling really makes these cookies extra special. After sampling the cookies, I couldn't help but think that the only thing that could make these any better would be a little chocolate. Unfortunately, I didn't realize until after I had made the filling that there was also a milk chocolate version of the filling that can be substituted for the peanut butter filling! I definitely foresee another batch of these yummy treats in my near future - and next time with chocolate filling.
These cookies were amazing but don't take my word for it - make a batch for yourself.
