Yield: 4-5 dozen

I’ve been wanting to try this cookie for a while now, but summer is flying by and I’m having trouble finding time to bake.  This morning, when I realized I had nothing else specific planned, I figured I had better hurry and go for it before I lose another day!

I have this recipe book of cakes, bars, muffins and such made from cake mixes and brownie mixes.  Most of them are chocolate, so you can see why it appeals to me!  One of my favorites from that book is a Hello Dolly bar.  It uses a cake mix to make a chocolate crust, then is topped with chocolate and butterscotch chips, walnuts and coconut, and drizzled with sweetened condensed milk.  It’s enough sugar to put you in a diabetic coma, but you would die happy!

Yield: About 3 dozen cookies

I bought a bag of peaches at the grocery store this week.  I don’t know what I was expecting, after all, it is June and peaches aren’t really in season for another 2-3 months.  But I love peaches.  They are my favorite fruit.  So I broke down and bought a 2 lb. bag.  Now I don’t know what to do with them.

I discovered recently, thanks to Stat Counter, that several people found my site by searching for “fruit flavored cookies” and that got me thinking that there aren’t enough fruity cookies on this blog.  I have a tendency to be partial to chocolate.  (Can you blame me?)  So I went looking for some peach cookie recipes to try.  There were unfortunately very few available.

I did find this one from Sunny Anderson, host of Food Network’s Cooking For Real. I really like the show, and her style of cooking.  I did have some problems with the recipe, but nothing that will keep me from making it again!
