Happy Halloween readers!
Like I stated in HERE in my last dessert post, I am not much of a baker but I am certainly trying/learning! I followed this recipe from the blog Sally's Baking Addiction (which I found through a google search) a made a batch of Peanut Butter M&M cookies! Overall these came out tasting delicious but I did have a little mishap while baking. Her recipe calls for 1 and 1/4 cup of flour (which I thought sounded like A LOT - I reread that line multiple times) and upon adding it totally messed up the consistency of my dough. I panicked, but deciding that the dough still tasted good I proceeded with the recipe. It was hard though to form the little balls to place on the baking sheet; and I believe the crackling effect comes from the large amount of flour as well.
In the end my friends and I consumed them well before dinner and they were much more interesting to photograph than flat little cookies! I definitely will be sticking with my gut though and not adding so much flour next time.
The photo below is a fun little Halloween treat I put together for my girlfriends. I found these little boxes months ago at the craft store; and for a dollar I knew I'd find some use for them!
