Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

"It's a Nutter Butter on steroids... 
Creamy, delicious steroids." 
So.. Michael likes them. And so do I. They're delish & adorable. 

Use a cookie scoop to make uniform balls.
Mine aren't very aesthetically pleasing..
Cut them in half. 
Roll each half into a ball.
The Hancock boys claim these look like lady-parts. Little pervs.
Flatten each ball ever-so-slightly with a fork.
Baking them was a pain. 
I burned two batches.
But I figured out the perfect temperature & time!
325 for 8-10 minutes. Until just golden brown on the bottom sides.
Allow them to cool completely before flipping half the cookies over.
Whip the filling together.
Put a ziplock bag into a glass, then load the filling in it, & cut a corner off.
A little make-shift pastry bag!
Squeeze a dollop of filling onto the middle.
(This was my burnt batch. Still delicious.)
Squeeze that little bad boy together.

Peanut Butter Cookie:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I used extra chunky)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
Filling:
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
Cookies:
  1. In  a small bowl, combine the flour, bs, bp & salt. Cream the butter and sugars together until fluffy. Add in the peanut butter until well-mixed. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Mix in the flour mixture. Stir in the oats. Refrigerate for two hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Using a cookie scoop, make 24 uniform dough balls. Cut them in half and roll into balls (48 total). Place onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly with a fork. They will be small cookies! That's okay! Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are a light golden brown. Allow the cookies to cool completely.
Filling: 
  1. Cream 3 tablespoons butter  with the confectioners’ sugar, 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter, and the cream until light and fluffy.
  2. Fill the filling into a large ziplock bag, cut one of the corners, and squeeze  the filling onto half of the cooled cookies, then top with the other half, squeeze them together until the filling reaches the ends of the cookie!

The greatest Queso that ever lived.

Ingredients: (And.. 3/4 lbs. ground beef, browned and drained)
Cut the queso into cubes. Throw it into the crockpot. Add the browned and drained ground beef. Add two cans of Rotel (drained) and one can of diced green chiles (undrained). Mix everything together (I know.. not the most attractive..) & melt on low for 2-3 hours, or high for one hour. Once everything is melted, keep the crock pot on low until this happens.
3/4 lbs. lean ground beef, browned and drained*2 lbs. block of Velveeta, cubed2 (10 oz.) cans Rotel (original, mild, or hot- whatever your preference), drained1 (7 oz.) can diced, roasted green chilesCombine all the ingredients in a crock pot. Melt on low until smooth (approx. 2-3 hours) or high (approx. 1 hour). Once melted, keep crockpot on low.*I've also made this with ground turkey and ground elk- each were equally delicious!

Lazy Dessert.

Lemon Meringue Pie & Tiramisu just seemed too ambitious for tonight. So I made...
Lazy Ice Cream Cake. Ingredients: 12 ice cream sandwiches, any flavorIce cream, any flavor- softenedIce cream topping, such as caramel, hot fudge, strawberry, etc.Whipped Topping Line an 8" x 8" pan with saran wrap. Using half the sandwiches, make a single layer. 
Cover the ice cream sandwiches with softened ice cream- try to make an even layer.  I used about 1/3 of a tub of Cookies 'n Cream.
Cover the ice cream with a thin layer of hot fudge. It looks... not beautiful.
Finish the layers off with the remaining ice cream sandwiches.  Throw the pan in the fridge for about an hour so the ice cream can harden.
Once the ice cream has hardened, invert the pan onto the plate you'll serve it from. "Frost" the cake with the whipped topping.
I tried to get fancy and made lines of caramel & chocolate sauce, then dragged a toothpick in alternating directions to create the design. Return the cak…

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Have you ever heard of Engagement Chicken? Supposedly, it's a magical recipe that results in boyfriends wanting to marry their girlfriends. I'm not making this up- it was published in Glamour magazine. It has it's own Wikipedia page. Granted I've never made Engagement Chicken, I don't believe it. I think the real way to a man's heart is through Buffalo Chicken Dip. 
There are two ways to make this- I'm a fan of the crockpot method because the dip can stay warm and its the easiest to transport, but both are equally delicious!
