Baking In Stilettos/ Cookies/ Tried and True Recipes

Cinnamon Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

When I was thinking of what recipe I would whip up, I thought – why not make something that was comforting with a bit of sass and these Cinnamon Peanut Butter Cup Cookies were a must.  The key to these – a good cookie scoop, mini-muffin tins (because if you put them on a cookie sheet they will spread like the wind) and patience to unwrap all the mini Peanut Butter Cups (and willpower to not eat them all!)

I did have to valiently fight to keep them away from family and friends – finally saying “OK – I need 3 dozen and after that, they are YOURS!”.  Well, sure enough – I had just enough to ship and the UPS man whisked them off to their new destinations.  I was stoked to see that I had Lauren from Healthy Delicious, Aubrey of The Real Housemoms and Meghan of Cake ‘n Knife to send them too.  Their blogs are nothing short of fabulous and I have a bunch of new food blogs to add to my must read list .
