things have been pretty busy around here. busier than last year at this time. busier than expected. and don’t get me wrong, busy is good, but certain adjustments need to be made.
i offered to help bake holiday cookies for my mom this year and trying to squeeze cooking making into my schedule hasn’t been necessarily easy. so when i saw this recipe for ‘candy cookie cups’ i felt like i hit the jackpot.
you only need three ingredients:
1. one package (18oz) individually portioned refrigerated white chip macadamia nut cookie dough (i know it’s pre-made cookie dough, but you can’t tell, trust me)
2. twenty-four miniature peannut butter cups (reeses of course!)
3. and 1/2 cup finely chopped macadamia nuts.
got your ingredients? here’s what to do…
sprinkle macadamia nuts into 24 greased miniature muffin cups, 1 teaspoon in each.
cut each portion of cookie dough in half (or just tear it like i did), place each half in a muffin cup.
bake at 325 for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.
(and don’t forget to unwrap your peanut butter cups in advance)
immediately (after taking pictures for you blog) place a peanut butter cup in each cookie; press down gently.
cool completely before removing from pans to wire racks. (this step is actually important. can’t rush this one!)
and they really are delicious. honest. and no one will ever know, expect for me of course, that you used refrigerated cookie dough. and i promise not to tell. so if you need a quick super yummy cookie, give them a try.
ok, and now for the question. i’m in the need of a new computer. last year i got a virus on my current computer (a laptop from dell) and it’s just never been the same. then this past summer i dropped my laptop. i know. shame on me. so now the screen is literally hanging on by the wires on the one side. and the cd-rom is slightly dysfunctional.
i’ve been a lifetime pc user, but have interest in switch over to mac. so please take a second to complete the poll below. and if you have more detail advice or a very strong opinion, please leave a comment below or shoot me an email. thank you! thank you!
