This month’s Secret Recipe Baking Club assignment for us is The Harried Cook. I checked out the recipes from Marsha’ s blog this month, since Allison and Jessica had extra-busy months with work. Marsha has a lot of baking recipes, which are right up my alley. I would rather bake then cook.
I decided to choose Marsha’s recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies w/ Chocolate Centers. Make sure you check out her post about why she made the cookies, because it is a very touching story.
Peanut butter and chocolate are a wonderful together. The cookie dough gets wrapped around a square of a chocolate bar. I had some Hershey’ s chocolate bars that I broke into pieces and put in the middle. The Hershey miniatures would be good too. I like a chewy peanut butter cookie so I didn’t let them get too brown.
This is a great cookie recipe. Try one while warm, then the chocolate is still melty.
The Harried Cook had some other recipes that I’m looking forward to trying out, especially Rocky Road Cupcakes and Moist Carrot Cake w/Coconut Milk Magic Frosting. But for now, here’s this cookie recipe, which I’m going to rename “Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies” since the chocolate center is the perfect surprise.
Secret Recipe Club is the Secret Santa of the food blog world! We all make recipes from our secret assignment blog once a month, then have fun seeing everyone’s results on reveal day. Check out who else is playing along in my group:
