Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies with Cold Milk

We opted for an anti-social Superbowl Sunday, stayed home, worked on some projects that needed to be finished, and after they were done, ended up testing several dessert recipes including one from the old Betty Crocker cookbook and another from America’s Test Kitchen.  They both turned out extraordinarily well.  The peanut butter sandwich cookies are out of this world.  They instantly moved to the the second best cookie recipe we’ve ever had, behind the Ghirardelli chocolate chip cookies we regularly make.

Sometimes, these are the best days in life.  It’s just your family, hanging out, doing whatever.  Though, enjoying this kind of rich bounty tonight means that I have to go running tomorrow.  I am not looking forward to that.  

Golden Delicious Apples Wrapped In Pastry and Covered in Brown Sugar and Cinnamon, Stuffed with Raisins Betty Crocker Apple Dumpling

Golden Delicious apples wrapped in a flaky pastry, filled with raisins, and baked in brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter from the classic Betty Crocker cookbook, which I ordered after my post on General Mills.  It came from the early 1900’s and was originally printed on the Gold Medal flour bags.

The peanut butter sandwich cookie recipe is one of the best desserts I’ve ever enjoyed.  They will be made regularly for the rest of our lives.

It’s already 1:30 a.m. here but I am not tired.  I might stay up and read for a few hours.
