Old Man Winter

Well I guess Old Man Winter wanted to go out with a bangIt looks like we are going to get hit with 6-10 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow.  I am excited because I love snow but I do worry about my family that has to get out and drive on these snowy days.

I think I will try to bake cookies tomorrow. I love to cook and bake on days when it snows or rains.    I will probably make the newest recipe I found for peanut butter cookies.  They are AMAZING!  I found the recipe on Allrecipes.com and it is really good and take only a few ingredients.
Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies Recipe

I don't have the Hershey Kisses on hand so I think I will give this a try with chocolate chips. Here is the recipe:

1 Cup of Peanut butter (I used creamy but I think either would be good)
1 egg
1 Cup of Sugar
Hershey Kisses
 Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 11 minutes. Don't overcook and they will be yummy and chewy.
That's it!  I used my medium scoop and it made about 13 cookies.  I cooked them for 10 minutes.

When I made my cookies I divided my sugar into three different kinds per the advice I saw from a reader on the Allrecipes website.  So for the single recipe instead of the 1 Cup of white sugar I used
 ( 1/3 cup White Sugar, 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 1/3 cup of powdered sugar. )  and they were super yummy. I think this is awesome because there is no flour, no butter or oil just the three ingredients plus whatever chocolate you choose to use.
I really hope you try these because I think you will enjoy them.

This is a card using a digi stamp from Wee Stamps. You can find her images HERE.  This pretty little fairy is called Silver Fairy.  She is so cute. This is my first attempt at coloring this image and I can't wait to color her again.

 The little rosettes that are in the upper left had corner are super easy to make. I will try to put together a tutorial on how they are made in my next posting.

I hope you have a great snow day tomorrow and stay safe.
