MIlk & Cookies Picnic
Graduation is over. It's hard to believe our girl is all grown up. We are very proud of her. We had her reception at our house. Everything went well and it was great to see all of our family and friends.
Anyway… now that graduation is over and all the cleaning, sprucing, planning and baking (that we did to get ready) is done, life is getting back to "normal" and I finally have time to write a quick blog post again.
I am really, REALLY, enjoying this Memorial Day weekend. A 3-day weekend with nowhere to go & nothing important to do was just what I needed. I don't even have enough ambition to put together a full fledged picnic at the park. Instead, I decided it would fun & easy to pack up some cookies and milk and have a "snack" in the park. I made the Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies from a recipe in the March, 2008 issue of Cottage Living. The cookies are just your basic peanut butter cookies. The filling is what makes these cookies delicious. Here's the recipe:
2 (3-ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
5 T. powdered sugar
Beat all ingredients until smooth. Spread about 1 T. of filling onto flat side of cookie and top with another cookie.
Hope everyone else is having a great Memorial weekend too!
