I’m always looking for new and interesting cookie ideas to share with you. I’m like a hunter at the grocery store… hunting down fruits, nuts, chocolates, candies, basically anything that might work in a cookie recipe.
It’s a little weird, I know, but that’s my life.
The thing is, though, when the kids and I want to make cookies just for fun, you know what we always make? Chocolate chip or peanut butter. The classics.
Maybe that’s why I decided that this month’s Cookie of the Month needed to involve peanut butter. You can never go wrong with a peanut butter cookie.
Of course, I also have trouble leaving well enough alone, so I took my plain jane peanut butter cookies and sandwiched them with chocolate ice cream.
Actually I used this chocolate ice cream with a ripple of peanut butter in it, because that’s how I am. I love chocolate ice cream, but chocolate peanut butter ice cream is even better.
Since this is the Cookie of the Month, there are lots of people sharing peanut butter cookies with you today! Check out this variety:
