Peanut Butter Snickerdoodle M&M Cookies & Peanut Butter RoundUp to die for….

The weather in California can be so strange! Today for instance. The day started with a beautiful sunrise. A few hours later the sun was gone and replaced by dark clouds which opened up and DUMPED BUCKETS of water – seriously POURED for a few hours. Then…the sun came back and the sky is a beautiful blue waiting on a sunset.

There are SO many peanut butter recipes in my cookbooks (remember those?)  and pinned on my Pinterest Board that I can’t wait to make and TASTE! But sometimes you just don’t have the energy or the time to make your sweet treat craving. Sometimes you just want to open a box or in this case, a pouch, add a few ingredients and ta-da…warm tasty cookies!

Peanut Butter Snickerdoodle Cookies

I picked up a “snack size” Betty Crocker Peanut Butter cookie pouch on the clearance shelf after the holidays. The pouch has been calling me to make them ever since! This past weekend I made warm, crunchy on the outside with a soft center, melt-in-your-mouth cookies!

I made the peanut butter cookie batter following the directions on the package. Added a 1/2 cup of M&M’s, rolled a cookie scoop size amount of batter into a ball, then rolled the ball in cinnamon sugar. Baked as directed; 350 for 12 minutes.

I love peanut butter! Unfortunately, so do my hips! You know how peanut butter sticks to the top of your mouth? That’s what it does to my hips, my behind, my thighs…any of those wonderful “love handle” places!

But lately I have been c-r-a-v-i-n-g peanut butter; I could eat it with a spoon straight from the jar!

Hubby – he would be perfectly happy with a complete diet of everything peanut butter!

Sometimes a gal just has to succumb to her cravings!  So, when I am going to treat myself and eat the calories of wonderful peanut butter goodness, I want it to be worth it!

Here are a few recipes from my blogger buddies I can’t wait to try…
