    Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

    January 16th, 2016

    Sometimes I surprise myself, and not in a good, surprise-party sort of way. Sometimes I do stupid things, which isn’t news to you (like almost burning down our condo, or regularly burning everything I put in the bottom rack of our devil’s-spawn-of-an-oven, or forgetting the date of my Grandmother’s 101st birthday last month because I can’t […]

    Peanut Butter Caramel Bars

    November 21st, 2015

    Does caramel go with peanut butter? That was the question I asked myself, then stopped and slapped myself in the face. Caramel goes with everything. So now that we have that out of the way, here’s the scoop:  imagine a peanut butter cookie baked into a pan so you can cut it into bars (we’re having […]

  • PB Ganache Thing

    Peanut Butter Ganache Bowl

    November 14th, 2015

    If you ever try to email me or call me or visit me and I’m unavailable, it’s probably because I’m busy gorging myself on this dessert.  (Texting counts too.  If I don’t answer your text it’s not because I’m not a Millennial.  It’s because I’m bingeing on a Peanut Butter Ganache Bowl and barely coming […]

    Fluffy Peanut Butter Pie

    August 15th, 2015

    I have had this recipe burning a hole in my head for about two years.  (Well, I guess it’s been freezing a hole, since this recipe doesn’t require any cooking whatsoever- just beating the ingredients and then popping the cute little, fluffy little pie in the freezer.  Bonus.) The truth is that I’ve made a […]

  • Chocolate Cookie PB Ganache Pie

    Chocolate PB Ganache Pie

    April 13th, 2015

    “Uh oh.” That’s what I said when I took the frozen peanut butter cookie crust out of the freezer, let it thaw in its foil wrapping, and then realized when I opened it up and was about to spread the ganache over top of it that it wasn’t a peanut butter cookie crust at all. […]

    Peanut Butter Cookie Brownies

    March 21st, 2015

    Imagine you’re sitting there eating a peanut butter cookie, but all of a sudden the cookie is enveloped in The World’s Greatest Fudge Brownie. That cookie just got about 600 times better, didn’t it? I need to be clear: this recipe isn’t about taking a massively good brownie and simply swirling PB into it (been […]

    Peanut Butter Brownie Crumble Bars

    March 14th, 2015

    I have a hard time naming desserts, because I never find it possible to express exactly how excited I am about all of the layers and ingredients and degrees of sin. Like this winner: there’s the peanut butter cookie layer, which on its own would be satisfying as a last meal on death row.  But […]

    Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

    February 21st, 2015

    I owe you an apology, baker. I haven’t made peanut butter cookies for years (such shame!  such horror!), despite having “Coming soon… Classic Peanut Butter Cookies” in the cookie section of the Recipe Index page for about two whole years.  Good intentions?  Yeah well, you know what they say about those. What was wrong with […]

    Peanut Butter Nougat Chocolates

    February 4th, 2015

    I need you to know that there’s no turning back after making these chocolates. You can’t expect to make them, eat them, and live your life like you did the day before.  No.  Something will happen, some sort of inexplicable shift, some sort of transformation.  You won’t be able to stop thinking about them, and […]

    Take a deep breath, reader. Get ready for the easiest no-bake thing you’re ever going to make (well, other than the Ugly But Good Bars, but still). These are my new favorite sweet thing, which means it should really be your favorite new sweet thing too.  I dare you to make these and then tell […]

  • Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Tart

    Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Tart

    November 15th, 2014

    Word to the wise: bake stuff into a little tart shape and people will like it 34% more than if said stuff was baked into any other shape. I made up the 34% stat, but the fact remains.  People love tarts. This is a PB shortbread cookie, which on its own rocks the house.  But […]

    PB Chocolate Shortbread Fingers

    November 2nd, 2014

    Yes, it happened. Peanut butter was swirled into the Classic Shortbread Cookie dough. Oh, and chocolate was spread on top, too, which makes this cookie an absolute instant hit.  The fact that these cookies were shaped into fingers makes them strangely even more attractive to people to eat (really- make a cookie, even an average […]

    Chocolate Peanut Butter Caramel Brownie Pie

    August 16th, 2014

    Oh. My. Dessert God. Thank you for this! I have made many a pie with peanut butter & chocolate in the last few years… there was the Honey Roasted Peanut Butter & Chocolate Tart, the Incredible Peanut Butter Chocolate Ganache Pie, the Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart with Oatmeal Crust, and a few others I’m just […]

    Please tell me that you are aware of the exquisite pleasure known as baklava.  (I bestowed the gift of Classic Baklava on you back in September [the 18th, to be exact, of 2013, to be more exact], so shame on you if you didn’t go straight to the grocery store and stock up on honey and […]

    June 14th, 2014

    PB & chocolate.  I’ve been doing a lot of that lately and all I have to say to that is “you’re welcome”. You already know and love the World’s Greatest Fudge Brownie, and if you love peanut butter, then this dessert will be the one you can request as your last meal if you ever […]

    May 14th, 2014

    This is the fancified version of the Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup. So buckle up. (No one needed to improve on the Reece’s masterpiece, but let it be said: making them with fancy dark chocolate and freshly ground organic peanut butter takes the accessible version of this treat to Foodie Land and back.  It’s really an […]

    May 3rd, 2014

    I have a thing for healthy & tasty ingredients rolled into balls.  (Eating things in shapes makes it so much more civilized to eat excessive amounts of them, instead of sitting on the couch with a bowl and eating the healthy & tasty goo right from the spoon you used to stir it altogether.)  Remember […]

    Honey-Roasted Peanut Butter & Chocolate Tart

    April 5th, 2014

    “This dessert is definitely a top 5”, said The Husband when this was served the other night. I have to tell you: that was a meaningful statement.  (The Husband is very supportive of the plethora of baking that goes on in our place, which is surprising since he’s my official guinea pig and has been […]
