If you get intimidated by holiday baking please raise your hand with me! I actually enjoy baking, but never consider it something I am good at. However, I keep working at it and over time I have felt more comfortable baking and have had fewer kitchen mishaps! My biggest crime is not adjusting my oven racks correctly and putting a little too much char on my baked goods…oops.
I have favorite recipe for 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies that I love because it is so quick and easy. However, because the holiday season is here I decided to change it up a bit by adapting the recipe to make the ever popular peanut butter kisses. These cookies are so easy and can be done on a whim because you likely have most of the ingredients in your pantry! I really like the texture of these cookies. They are a little different than cookies made with flour and are very dense and full of peanut butter flavor. So delicious. I use milk chocolate kisses, but dark chocolate would be heavenly.
Tonight, we are laying low and I am going to start getting Kellen’s birthday gifts together (I can’t believe he is going to be 3!) and menu finalized. He is have a pirate party this year and it is going to be so much fun. Kellen is excited and is looking forward to a day to play with his friends. I also need to get a start on my Christmas wrapping….ugh… my least favorite part, but at least my shopping is pretty much done! Last year, I decided wrapping was terrible and only used bags…maybe I will do that again for the adults…
