One of my favorite parts of the holidays are the delicious foods, especially the abundance of sweets. I especially like parties that involve sharing foods and gaining new recipes, like cookie swaps. We know with the wild weather last weekend some of you may be stuck indoors, so today we’re hosting a cyber cookie swap party! No need to leave the house to join our party.
One of my favorite cookie recipes is one I have been making since I was old enough to stir. With four simple ingredients and easy enough for little hands to help with, it’s a family tradition at our house.
Flourless Peanut Butter Candy cookies:
1 cup peanut butter (we like creamy)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 package candy coated chocolates (we use m&ms)
Mix all ingredients well. Using hands, shape into one inch balls and place onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Gently press one candy into top of each ball.
(No candies? Just flatten slightly with a fork in a criss-cross design.)
Bake at 350 degrees until golden, approximately 10-12 minutes. Cool slightly before removing from pan.
So for some holiday fun, please share a link to your favorite cookie recipe and tell us why it’s your favorite recipe. For some additional fun, we’ll randomly select a few comments from this blog post for a little secret Santa surprise from Cotton Babies. Don’t forget to read the other comments to find a new recipe your family will love. Let the party begin!
