I don't usually advocate for obscene amounts of butter, or sugar, or flour, unless it's grass-fed butter or organic sugar forms (honey, maple syrup) but sometimes you just gotta say YOLO, and eat your butter and sugar filled bakery treats. Around the holidays, I am THE girl that is sneaking brownies to my room, drinking hot chocolate with loads of fluffy whipped cream at all hours of the day, and indulging in every holiday food known to mankind. Oh, the perks of being an American.
Price Chopper, #HolidayAdvantEdge, and #CollectiveBias enlisted me to create an affordable and fun holiday recipe for you guys, so you can put all the extra dollars in your wallet towards a new pair of shoes or a gift for the special boy/girl in your life (for me, that's just one more pair of shoes) instead of overpriced baked goods. So, I headed to Price Chopper a few minutes from my house to stock up and buy some yummy ingredients for under $10.
Since the holidays are all about spending time with loved ones/friends, you don't want to be in the kitchen cooking baked goods for hours at a time. I picked up some cookies by my good ole' friend, Betty Crocker, along with Jif Creamy Peanut Butter, which would be both delicious and filling for people of all ages.
I've opted for crisp chocolate chip cookies with a peanut butter glaze, cause, duh, peanut butter and chocolate. Seriously, make these, and wrap them up and give them to your friends and family. You can even say they are homemade. Well, technically, they are...
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix one stick of butter and 1 egg with the mix. Form into 1 inch balls and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until your liking.
For the peanut butter glaze:
Stir 1.5 cups of Jif peanut butter with 1/4 cup honey, drizzle over cookies and let sit (or eat straight out of the oven!)
