Peanut Butter Change-Ups (Peanut Butter Cookies)

Posted on 9 CommentsPosted in Cookies, Peanut Butter

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie assignment was making Peanut Butter Change-Ups from Dorie Greenspan’s new cookbook, Dorie’s Cookies. These are pretty much fully loaded peanut butter cookies because there are tons of peanuts and a jar of peanut butter in one batch!

On the bright side, I’m still posting this while it’s still summer!

Betty’s Chocoholic Cake was the second Tuesdays with Dorie assignment for May. This is definitely a cake for chocolate lovers.

One of this month’s Tuesdays With Dorie assignments is the Tarte Tropézienne from Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan.

This is supposed to be a beautiful cake, but mine turned out looking very “rustic.”
