Natural Nut Butter

Natural Nut Butter

If you’re ever at a farmer’s market that sells natural nut butter, I suggest you give it a try. It’s great in peanut butter cookies and almond butter makes a great substitute for an even nuttier flavor.

Last weekend we stopped in at the South Bend, IN farmers market and picked up some peanut butter and almond butter for future cookies. The peanuts and almonds are ground right there as you fill up your tub.

Along with updating my peanut butter cookie recipe, I am working on another treat. This last weekend I took the opportunity to start testing out my ideas and found a few didn’t work quite as planned. I’ll be going back to the “drawing board” and working on new ideas. In the meantime here’s a quick pic of my current project, any guesses?

So I have a peanut butter cookie recipe from a relative and I have been recently working on modifying it to make my cookies more soft and chewy. I made a switch in my ingredients last week and was very excited with the outcome. I think I am finally starting to get my recipe where I want it to be. So I documented by taking photos of the cookies! Check them out below. How do you like your cookies? crunchy or chewy?

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cream Pies

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cream Pies

Here is a throwback to a couple of photos of these white chocolate peanut butter oatmeal cream pies I made earlier this year. Additional photos were posted on my Instagram here. I had a similar dessert at a shop and fell in love, and thus had to figure out how to make them myself. Vanilla and chocolate buttercream frosting sandwiched between two white chocolate peanut butter cookies! Yum and Yum. I’d eat the cookies alone but they are oh so delicious with the buttercream filling.

What desserts have you loved so much you just had to learn to make yourself? Let me know in the comments.
