Am I the only baker on the planet who has never made these awesome chocolate and peanut butter no bake cookies? A few weeks ago my sous-chef dishwashing mom and I delivered a panful of PW cinnamon rolls to our friend Julie. Julie had given us fresh
garden tomatoes the day before and we needed to return her basket. In keeping with true southern tradition (never return a plate, or garden box, empty) we included some fresh-out-of-the-oven cinnamon rolls with our return.
My sous-chef dish-washing mom came home from Community Bible Study all excited with a recipe in hand! “You’ve just got to make this” she said.
Our friend Barbara made this dessert cheese ball for a fellowship lunch. Everyone went wild over the surprised rich white chocolate liberally mixed together with a fine vanilla extract. Cream cheese and butter are the base for the ball and then finely chopped pecans round it all out.
Barbara served this delectable dessert on graham crackers and mom said it was great. We decided to serve them on belVita crackers and I highly recommend it. Wow, what a lovely dessert. Add a little fruit on the side and this is a home run!
The cream cheese could easily be colored green for St. Patrick’s Day, red for Valentine’s Day or Christmas and even blue for the 4th of July!
I’ve been totally out of touch with my blog lately while giving daily attention to this one. This recipe is just too good not to send out to you!
Happy Spring! Enjoy the cheese ball! Blessings, Catherine
Thank you to all of my readers who have sent emails, left comments, and have taken the time to share words of encouragement for my nephew, Richard. In case you missed it you might want to read “You Really Aren’t Going To Believe This”.
I decided it is time I get back to some sweet blogging. 2016 seems to be running at Mach speed in my life and this weekend I intend to slow it down a notch! So, let’s make cookies!
When some of our California kids were here this summer the dinner conversation turned to Pizookies. At first when my step-son Bryan said Pizookie I wasn’t sure what I heard him say. I said, “will you spell that for me?” He did one better and Googled it for me. This is a pizza cookie all rolled into one single serving baking dish. He and our grandson Sean went on to poetically describe one of their favorite desserts from BJ’s Restaurant.
The more they talked the more exacted they got. They tossed around words like chocked full of chocolate chips, warm and gooey, topped with quickly melting vanilla ice cream, deep dish cookie, served warm from the oven. But wait there’s more! Click to continue reading
