Emma and Taylor baked up a storm yesterday. The boys were off doing their thing and they had a little time to kill in the kitchen. In a previous post, I shared our experience making Recipe Girl’s Butterfinger Brownies. They were amazing.
We’ve been testing out some other cookbooks and having flop, after flop, after flop. So, Emma went back to the Recipe Girl Cookbook hoping for a winner. She chose Recipe Girl’s Chocolate-Peanut Butter Swirl Cookies. We weren’t disappointed. These cookies are my personal favorite right now.
Here’s Emma and Taylor ready to tackle a new recipe. Aprons clean. Ready for any baking challenge.
Emma gets crackin’.
Emma adds the peanut butter.
Sonny helps clean the peanut butter spoon.
Everything is ready to be mixed. (That’s my Grandma Hazel’s mixer, btw)
In just a few minutes, the dough is ready to go.
Emma is preparing to wrap the dough. The chilled dough will roll out nicely.
It’s a wrap – now off to the fridge.
Ok, the dough has been chilled, unwrapped, and rolled out. Now a layer of chocolate is spread on top. (Sorry, no pictures of us licking the spoon after this step).
The dough is rolled into logs.
We froze the logs over night. We wouldn’t have had to freeze them that long, but it was bedtime for Emma.
The next day, we set them out for a few minutes to warm up and then sliced them.
The slices look so pretty on the baking sheet.
We couldn’t resist checking on them. I love it when cookies look like you expect them to look. Just a few minutes left.
Recipe Girl’s Chocolate-Peanut Butter Swirl Cookies turned out great. I would say they are the cookie equivalent of Special K bars. Easy, great-tasting, and good-looking. That’s the triple crown in baking. We’ll be making these again for the flag day celebration in two weeks.
