The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2012 and Milwaukee's Cookies for Kids' Cancer Bake Sale. Both are coming up this week. My Christmas cookies for the cookie swap will be going in the mail tomorrow and some of the extras of the batch will be packaged for the bake sale.
I was feeling festive again, so I just had to put on my Snoopy holiday socks to bake in! They say Let It Snow, but with yesterday being a high of 60, all we got was rain! (Wishful thinking tho!)
The recipe that I made tonight will only be going to the bake sale because they are too delicate to ship and arrive in one piece. But man are they cute!
I found the recipe for these Rudolph Peanut Butter cookies on Ladies' Home Journal via Pinterest. How can you pass up these? Not to mention - peanut butter, chocolate and pretzels, that is the sweet/salty indulgence that I love.
KitchenAid, can you help her out with an upgrade - haha!
I baked the cookies for slightly under the length of time suggested as I believe my oven runs hot. These cookies need a production crew, because they were setting up faster than I could get the nose, eyes and antlers in. So in the future, I would ask to have help from a co-baker, but no one was around tonight. It was just me and my wine - it was an easy-to-drink Smoking Loon Merlot.
I plan to put these on a cute plate and sell them at the #MKEFoodies Bake Sale at Best Place at the Pabst Brewery this Saturday from noon - 4 pm. Stop by to get these and many, many, many, many other wonderful treats and help out a great cause.
