It’s Christmas Eve!!!! Are you scrambling with last minute shopping, wrapping and baking? I am!
Take a break from the holiday rush and check out mine and Dana’s cookie series. We have some amazing cookie recipes here perfect to leave for Santa. These cookies are so good, he just might leave you extra presents ;)
This week I am sharing my recipe for Double Peanut Butter Cookies. These are moist perfect peanut butter cookies taken to the next level by adding in Reeses Pieces, giving the cookies crunchy little pops of more peanut butter.
These are definitely a peanut butter lovers dream cookie!
I always put these on my Christmas Eve dessert platter because the holidays are filled with chocolate, peppermint and gingerbread and it is nice to have a variety and throw in some peanut butter.
So pour a glass of milk and leave out a few of these cookies for Saint Nick tonight!
