Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

PSX_20180727_062040

This has become my favorite recently. I definitely favor this than my plain Peanut Butter Cookies. The addition of oats gives it a chewy bite and texture. Not to mention, there could never be wrong with the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, so the addition of chocolate in these cookies is definitely a brilliant idea.

Plain, simple, and a very easy cookie recipe that everyone will certainly love.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

DSCN4038

Here’s another round of pantry cleaning! The previous holiday made me realize how many jams/jellies we bought and received from friends, co-workers and relatives. We have a lot of jars of jams that are still sitting in the pantry cabinet since April last year! From peach jam, grape jelly, blueberry jam, mango jam, and even cactus jelly! We really ought to start eating them. And since my brother is a huge PB & J fanatic, I figured I could entice him to help me out in devouring the jam by making this recipe.

This recipe is basically using my Peanut Butter Cookies recipe, then topped it off with more peanut butter and jams or jellies. I contemplated on making this as thumbprint cookies, but I changed my mind as it could be a lot of work. So, I decided to form a rectangular shape out of the cookie and just spread as much peanut butter and jam on top of it. Then, once baked, I sliced it into squares. It’s much easier and faster to do it that way.

Fruitcake Cookies

It’s that time of the year! My favorite holiday, Christmas Day, is approaching very fast. As I’m already all set with gifts for my friends and family, the only thing I have to stress about is food (which isn’t that very stressful at all!). My mom is a great fan of fruitcakes. In fact, she buys them every single year, even though no one in the household shares her fondness for fruitcakes. Many times before, she would buy fruitcake mix and asked me to make a fruitcake. I tried my best, but unfortunately, failed at making her the moist, authentic and delicious fruitcake. I tried the true and tested recipes from the back of the label of the fruitcake mix and of course, searched online for that authentic fruitcake version she’s been raving about. But nope, I just can’t replicate the fruitcake cake that she often buys in the grocery store.

This year, however, I am trying a different approach to the fruitcake mix she has handed to me. I experimented on making a fruitcake cookie instead of the tedious fruitcake cake. It’s much easier, faster and yes, more delicious than the cake version. My siblings and I don’t like fruitcake, but we ended up liking this cookie version. It’s that good! Not to mention, very pretty and definitely has that holiday look!

Regardless, these are very good! Goodness, I can munch on these for days and you won’t hear any complaints from me. Nope, not this cookie lover right here!
