Pinnable Non-Caveman Food

Ever since drastically changing our eating habits last year, a dessert has mostly meant throwing some oats, raisins and peanut butter in a food processor and calling it good.  But as I was preparing for Home Group this weekend I just wanted a real cookie.  With sugar in it.  Without taking any time to soak some grains.  Live a little on the wild side, if you will. 

I've pinned a few good-looking dessert recipes lately and decided just to go crazy and make three of them.  All three were winners.

hahaha...poor Christian

First up: Four Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies.  Four ingredients is a nice easy number of ingredients.  And Christian loved them.

(Speaking of Christian, what am I to do with his hair?  If he could wear hair clips it would really help but David is not supportive of that idea.  I promise I do try to groom him; his hair just has a mind of its own.) 

Next are the Snickerdoodle Blondies.  I like snickerdoodles and I like brownies, so if combining the two of them is not a recipe for success I don't know what is.  They were a hit among the menfolk for sure.  I even made these ones gluten free just for fun. 

And finally the Giant Double Chocolate Cookies.  I made them regular sized instead of giant, which just means you can eat five of them and not feel as badly as if you were to eat five giant ones. 

It was good to get that baking out of my system for awhile.

In case you were wondering about Daphne in all this, she was just off dressing herself like a bag lady.

Love Christian's hair! And poor Daphne, a 'bag lady?' She looks pleased with herself no matter what you think!

If you continue needing to bake, do you want some hens? I brought five eggs in Monday, six yesterday and nine today. I think we can share.
