For Christmas I made a couple new cookie recipes. Both were delish! They were Peanut Butter Cup Cookies and Cookie Dough Balls. The PB cookies are super super easy, cheap and yummmmy. The Cookie Dough balls were easy (recipe from here), yet a little tedious...I love cookie dough soo much so when I saw this I knew I had to give them a try. They don't call for any eggs, so are safe to eat---unlike regular raw cookie dough. Enjoy the recipes below!

Peanut Butter Cups:


1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 bag of reese's peanut butter cups


-Mix peanut butter and sugar together
-Put mini muffin cup liners in mini muffin pan (you do not have to use liners, but if you don't---spray heavily w/cooking spray)
-Put PB/sugar mixture in muffin pan
-Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes
-As soon as you take them out of the oven, put the reese's cups in the cookies
-Let them cool...enjoy!

Cookie Dough Balls

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
14 oz can sweetened, condensed milk
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips

To coat: 1 1/2 lbs chocolate disks or chocolate chips

In a large bowl cream butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Add vanilla. Gradually beat in flour and add milk. Add chocolate morsels, mixing well. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper; chill 2 hours.

Since the dough is sticky, roll your fingers into flour. This will make it easier to roll.

Melt chocolate chips or disks in a double boiler. Using 2 forks, dip cookie balls into candy coating to cover. Place on waxed paper and chill to set. Store in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
