Cally was home from school this weekend to help out with the Single Senior Dinner at her Church. For the dinner the guest went home with a cookie tray. Cally's contribution to the cookie trays was this Puppy Chow Cookie.
Oh boy they sure are good! It does remind me of her Puppy Chow Mix that she makes. The cookie is a soft peanut butter cookie ( It has to be good cause it is adapted from Betty Crocker's recipe lol) then it is topped with an awesome chocolate/peanut butter icing and for the finish it is sprinkled with powder sugar.
Bill is on call this weekend for work and has been gone most of the weekend. So to surprise him Cally made him a batch of these cookies.
This coming week will be Cally's last week before Christmas vacation. She and I have been working on the cute snowman ornaments for her 3rd grade class.
