Last week, 2 of my children were having fun with their friends.
That left our youngest munchkin all alone!
We had to do something so he could have some fun too:-)

1. Dinner date to Golden Corral…it is his absolute fav!
Not sure why, since all he eats is a cheese plate and gummy bears.
You think I’m kidding…but his plate consists of shredded cheese,
mac and cheese, and cottage cheese. And yes, that is pretty much
all he eats.
2. Shopping spree in Target for both of us. I walked out with some new capris
and he got a new pack of pokemon cards.
3. Bake up some fun cookie mashups for the July Iron Chef Challenge
over at a Latte’ with Ott, A.
Isn’t he just the cutest little helper ever???

We decided to make our favorite peanut butter cookie
using some King Arthur Unbleached All Purpose Flour.
Now usually I plop a Reese’s pb cup down in the middle of these
and that just makes them so perfect, BUT…
we didn’t have any of those!
But, I did have Oreos and cream cheese!
Since Oreo truffles happen to be a favorite in our household too,

we decided they would be perfect for the center of the cookies!

I put my son to work crushing the Oreos in the food chopper,
while I got out all our ingredients.
He also rolled most of the truffles.

I love how much easier it is to bake with my kids now
that they are older and follow directions so much better!
(I just helped a little…mostly making them smaller)
Once we got the truffles finished we baked up the cookies
in mini muffin pans.

**quick tip – don’t forget to sprinkle the tops of your truffles
with some crushed oreo crumbs while they are still WET.
But if you do, just grab a blow dryer and very carefully heat
the top and sprinkle away! Just speaking from experience:-)

You were just waiting for that inside shot, right???
Absolutely TO. DIE. FOR.
Peanut butter and Oreo is one of my fav combos!
And these cookies are a great way to get the best of both cookies!
The cookies were so soft and pb delicious!
I couldn’t stop eating them!
Probably why I am not shrinking on my workouts:-)
Let me tell you, these were well worth it!!!

1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 c. all purpose flour

  2. Melt the chocolate bark in a microwave safe bowl stirring often. Using a toothpick, dip the Oreo truffle completely. Set on the wax paper to dry and sprinkle with the reserved oreo crumbs.
  3. Preheat oven to 350* Spray mini muffin pans with non stick spray and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, cream the shortening, peanut butter, and honey until creamy. Add both sugars, baking powder, and baking soda, and mix until combined.
  4. Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla. Slowly start adding the flour and mixing until fully combined. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and roll in the 1/4 c. sugar. Place in the muffin pans and bake for 8-9 minutes.
  5. As soon as you pull the cookies from the oven, place an Oreo truffle in the center and press down very gently. Let cool in the pan for 2 minutes, then gently remove to a wire rack to cool. After they have cooled slightly, transfer to a plate and refrigerate to set completely. Keep refrigerated.
