What can you do on a rainy day?
Play with toys?
I was going to make them yesterday but I needed something to do today. It’s like I already knew it was going to be a rainy day today.
I put in a movie for the kids to watch so that I can work on these without any “help”. That was so not the case. The minute I started getting the ingredients together Turbo came wandering in the kitchen whining because he knew I was doing something with food. And he wanted in on it.
And of course brother had to follow.
Turbo is not a patient kid when it comes to food. When he sees it he wants it…yesterday. He doesn’t want to wait til cools or until it’s ready, he wants it when he wants it.
If he doesn’t get it when he wants it he does this…
Throws a tantrum.
He usually throws himself on the floor and cries.
And when he gets mad and throws his tantrums he tries to win you back by snuggling up with you. It’s cute.
See? Cranky pants.
I mean he would just not let it go that he couldn’t get a cookie.
He still wasn’t satisfied when I gave him the scraper to lick off. He wanted to lick it clean. He was mad when I tried wiping his face off.
These are the cookies I made and had help with.
When I was down at Mama Newman’s a couple weeks ago she gave me Reese’s Peanut Butter baking chips because she had bought them to make cookies for her own cookie monster and I guess he’s not into peanut butter anymore. And she knows that at least 3 of the 4 people in this house love love love Reese’s anything.
And today was a perfect day to fire up the oven and bake them!
They were just sooo ooey gooey too!
The recipe I used was just one that was on the back of the package.
Here it is if you want it!
Reese’s Chewy Chocolate Cookies from Hershey’s Kitchen
2 c. flour
3/4 c. cocoa
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 2/3 c. (10 oz pkg) Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips
Heat oven to 350. Stir together flour, cocoa, and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with mixer until fluffy. Add in eggs and vanilla; beat well. Gradually add in flour mixture, beating well. Stir in peanut butter chips. Drop by the teaspoon-full on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8-9 minutes (Do not overbake. cookies will be soft. They will poof out while baking and flatten while cooling) Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet onto cooling rack; cool completely.
And enjoy! (You might need a glass of milk to wash it down)
