Someone's in the Kitchen with Grammy

The boys had a cooking date at Grammy's house earlier this week.  They made Peanut Butter Cookie Cups and made sure they brought their new aprons.

Spread the cookie dough.

Smooth on the peanut butter.

Sample the layers.

Drizzle the chocolate.

Mr. One's idea of washing up.

Mr. Two's idea of washing up.

Enjoying the fruits of their labor.

Mr. Three is not happy to be on the sideline. Maybe next time, when you're not on a liquid diet...

Thank you Grammy for a fun afternoon!

Peanut Butter Cookie Cups

1 tube chocolate chip cookie dough
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
3 or 4 tablespoons water
1 cup chocolate chips
cupcake holders

Place cupcake holders on a cookie sheet, or in a muffin tin.  Into bottom of each, put a small amount of cookie dough.  Bake at 350 degrees until slightly browned and puffy (about 9 minutes for mini cups, 13 minutes for large cups).   After taking them out of the oven, bang them softly on the counter or floor to flatten the cookie.  In the meantime, mix together the peanut butter, powdered sugar, and enough water to make a creamy mixture (with a frosting-like consistency).  When the cookies are cooled, spread a layer of peanut butter on each.  Melt the chocolate chips in a Ziploc baggie in the microwave.  Cut a small hole in one corner of the bag and draw a little zigzag of chocolate on the top of each cookie cup.
