Happy National Cookie Day

With holidays in abundance ranging from national burger day to national cat day (yes, these are real holidays), it only seems fair that there would be a national cookie day. Cookies are amazing, obviously, and are such a staple that everyone loves! Can you think of anyone who doesn’t like cookies?

In honor of national cookie day, bake some up with you favorite cookie loving friends. Here are just a few of the recipes I’ve shared on my blog you could try!

Also, a sneak peek at the cookies I will be posting a recipe for next week: Peanut Butter Cocoa Swirl Cookies. You may just have to celebrate national cookie day again next Tuesday…

Oreo Reese’s Recipe: This is Happening

The two things I try to never keep around the house are Oreo cookies and Reese’s Peanut butter Cups. The speed at which I can scarf either of them down is comparable to a college frat boy chugging beer. Either delight really kills the effect of any sort of workout regimen I try to keep.

That being said, sometimes I break my own rules. Especially when it comes to putting the two of these heavenly treats together into one angelic dessert. I have creatively named these godly desserts Oreo Reese’s. I don’t want to brag and say that they’re amazing. But I wouldn’t want to lie to you either.

The basic idea is to take an Oreo cookie, fill it with Reese’s Peanut butter Cup filling (from my Homemade Reese’s Bars post!), and dip the cookies in white chocolate.

Homemade Reese’s Bars Recipe

Homemade Reese's title 2

During a hard time for my family, we said goodbye to my amazing and wonderful grandmother. She was always the most adventurous woman with more self-control than I can ever imagine having. While she held an incredibly slim figure, there was never an absence of sweets at her house. One of my favorite treats she used to make me were her homemade Reese’s bars. She really perfected the texture of the peanut butter to taste just like a Reese’s candy, and the recipe is quick and simple to make! It’s also no bake! Continue reading “Homemade Reese’s Bars Recipe”
