A simple skillet cookie made with chocolate peanut butter and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!
I am the youngest of three girls. My sisters and I have always had a close relationship. Being the youngest, I always looked up to my sisters and idolized them, even during those times when they weren’t especially sweet to me. I can vividly recall my oldest sister sitting on me and tickling me until my stomach ached and I would cry out in pain to make her stop! Or the time when we were visiting Niagara Falls with the family, and my sisters would lift me and threaten to throw me over into the falls. Or even those times when they’d put strange ingredients in a cup and make me drink it. Yes, I admired them even then. They were older, wiser and by default, way cooler than me.
I can’t blame them for wanting to toss me into the raging waters of the falls, simply put, I was annoying. I’d pick up the phone while they were chatting with their friends and bark at them to get off (as if I had anyone to call). I’d put on my loudest shoes and tap dance in the kitchen while they were busy working on homework, I’d follow them around, snitch on them, and in essence, invade any shred of privacy they ever had. That’s what sisters do right? It’s a true wonder they still talk to me!
Today my bloggy friends and I are throwing a virtual baby shower for my friend Cathy at Lemon Tree Dwelling. I adore Cathy and her blog, she is so sweet and so talented, please visit and say hello! Cathy will soon deliver a baby girl into this world. I’m so happy for Cathy and her family! This little baby will be joining three older sisters, who will be ready to show her the ropes! Sure, there may be some fighting and sibling rivalry, but sisters have a special bond. I couldn’t imagine my own two girls not having each other. There is no way I could imagine not having my own sisters! This sweet little Lemon Tree Dwelling baby is one lucky little girl!
I made Cathy a chocolate peanut butter cup skillet cookie! This is so easy to put together and perfect for little girls to do together. The cookie bakes up quickly in the skillet and has the perfect amount of crunch, just like a regular sized cookie. I used chocolate flavored peanut butter and white chocolate Reese’s Cups just to shake everything up a bit!
COOKIE, COOKIE, COOKIE IS FOR ME!
