It’s the most wonderful time of the year….cookie season! I really can’t get enough cookies around Christmas, so I am excited to share my cookie love today as a guest poster on Twin Stripe. Twin Stripe is my friend Katie‘s lovely blog all about food, design, parties, and the fun things in life! She is going to have some great Christmas recipes this week, so be sure to check them out.
There have been a lot of cookie recipes on Chez CateyLou lately like these gingerbread cookies and these white chocolate cranberry cookies, but I saved my favorite one to share with you today. These Peanut Butter Reindeer Cookies are the cutest cookies I have ever made! Look at those little faces – aren’t they precious? And as an added bonus, they taste amazing too. Continue reading →
Apparently Friday was National Pretzel Day. Coincidentally, I was already planning on making homemade soft pretzels on Saturday for a small party we were hosting at our apartment. I love when stuff like that happens! I kind of think that we need to have a monthly National Pretzel Day (or at least National Pretzel Month) because these were SO good. I can’t believe it took me so long to make soft pretzels. Especially since TheBetterHalf is from Philadelphia, which is, as he likes to remind me, the home of the original soft pretzel.
When I stumbled upon this recipe on King Arthur’s website I knew I had to make it. (As a side note, I love using King Arthur flour in my baking, and their site has some great recipes!) The salty-sweet combo of the pretzels and chocolate are enough to win me over, but then add in peanut butter? I’m in heaven. And to top it all off, it is so easy! Plus you can make it on a whim because you don’t need to have room temperature ingredients. I knew this would be the perfect recipe to make for my friend’s St. Patrick’s day party.
