The other day we were snowed in. Not really, it only actually snowed about 3″, but it was extra cold outside and a Sunday, so I used it as an excuse to stay in our pajamas all day and bake. Julia loves to sit on the counter and “help”. For under two, she’s actually very good and patient at helping pour ingredients into the bowl and passing things over for “mama’s turn”.

No planning, no deadlines, no running to the store for ingredients. Just baking on a whim. I didn’t even intend to take their picture but they turned out really good and I wanted to share them. I’m kicking myself because I did the same thing last week with White Bean Chicken Chili and I was too lazy to take a picture or write down what I did. I’m going to have to recreate that one because it was the best soup I ever made.

The name might be deceptive because there isn’t any peanut butter in the batter, just peanut butter chips. It makes a small batch – I got 17 cookies – which is good for portion control. They’re great warm with a glass of milk!
