White Chocolate Pretzel Peanut Butter Cookies

One of my recent favorite flavor combos involving peanut butter is pretzels and white chocolate, and this cookie showcases the trifecta of awesome flavors perfectly. It takes a super simple peanut butter cookie that uses White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter from Peanut Butter & Co.

One pretzel is placed on top of the cookie prior to baking, and when their cool, they get a yummy coat of white chocolate on the bottom. These cookies are simply to die for!...more

My favorite things

Everyone has favorite things.  I’m not talking about a crackling fire or the smell of cut grass, but real tangible things.  And let's be honest.  Nobody really sits around thinking about raindrops on roses or whiskers on kittens.  Who's thankful that kittens have whiskers?  Isn't it just naturally assumed they'll be born with them?  Are some poor kittens born without whiskers, the poor suckers running around hairless and whimpering?  If someone is even thinking of cat whiskers, I suggest they find a hobby....more
I think you just named a few of my favorite things especially Perrier with Lime :)more
