Peanut Butter & Hazelnut Cookies

peanut Butter Hazelnut cookies Final

Ingredients:

1- Cup butter

1/4- Cup shortening ( I use crisco)

3/4- Cup Peanut Butter

1/2- Cup Hazelnut spread ( Nutella)

3/4- Cup Brown Sugar

2- eggs

1- teaspoon vanilla

1- Cup sugar

1- teaspoon baking soda

1- teaspoon salt

3- Cups Flour

1- Cup of sugar for rolling

For the Icing :

1- bag of semi sweet chocolate chips ( 2 cups)

4- Tablespoons Hazelnut spread ( Nutella)

1/2- Cup hazelnuts ( Crushed)


Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

In a medium sized mixing bowl add the first 10 ingredients ( everything except the flour).  Mix well with a wooden spoon. Add in all 3 cups of flour and mix till it looks like cookie dough. ( I am not one to separate the wet and dry ingredients so, when making cookies, I always add the flour last.) Chill cookie dough for about 20 minutes. Roll cookie dough into balls using half tablespoons. Roll into sugar and place cookies on a GREASED cookie sheet. Make the cute little crisscross on the cookies with a fork. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until cookies are cooked all the way (Mine were perfect at 8 minutes). Let cookies cool completely.

Icing Directions:

Pour chocolate chips and 1 cap full of vegetable oil into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring the chocolate chips after every 30 seconds. When the chocolate chips are almost completely melted add 4 tablespoons of hazelnut spread ( Nutella) and heat for an additional 30 seconds. Stir well. Place about 1/2 teaspoon of chocolate onto each cookie and smooth with a spoon, top with crushed hazelnuts. Cool in the refrigerator until chocolate hardens. Store in a cool place.

Cheesy Bacon Ranch Au Gratin potatoes

Bacon Ranch Au gratin

 

Recently¬†I had the pleasure of making these thick and creamy potatoes Au Gratin from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures. They were a huge hit, and I will be making them again in the very near future. If you have yet to check out A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures, then you’d better get hopping. She has so many delicious recipes that will leave you drooling. Trust me..

Catch her on facebook, also! РA Kitchen Hoor 

My Bacon Ranch Potatoes Au Gratin was adapted¬†from A Kitchen Hoor’s recipe, thick and Creamy Potatoes Au Gratin. I had no garlic or gruyere cheese in the house. But, what I did have, was bacon, ranch packets, and shredded¬†cheddar cheese. It’s hard to go wrong with those three ingredients. Add some potatoes and a few more ingredients to the mix and you have yourself a delicious pan of bacon ranch au gratin potatoes. YUM!

Bacon Ranch Au Gratin Potatoes 

Ingredients:

4-6 medium to large potatoes ( about 6 cups sliced)

1/2-pound bacon

1 Ranch seasoning packet

3 C. milk

1/2 stick butter

1 1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese ( mild)

2 Tbsp. flour

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Peel and wash potatoes; slice thinly using a mandolin slicer. In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter. Add potatoes to the bowl of melted butter, salt, and pepper to taste. Use hands to toss potatoes in the melted butter, salt and pepper, so each potato gets coated well. Place half the potatoes, evenly, in the bottom of a greased 13 X 9 cake pan, sprinkle, evenly, with 1/2 cup of the cheese; Repeat once. Using kitchen shears, or a sharp knife, cut or slice bacon into small bite sized pieces. Cook bacon in a medium to large saucepan over medium-high heat. Once the bacon has finished cooking, drain grease, and reserve 1 Tbsp. of cooked bacon for the top. Add milk, ranch packet, and flour to the saucepan of cooked bacon. Still on medium-high heat, wait for the milk mixture to come to a boil, use a whisk to scrape the brown bits up from the bottom of the pan, whisking often. As soon as milk mixture comes to a boil, turn off the burner, and carefully remove it from the heat, pour evenly over top the cheese and potatoes. Cover with foil and bake at 425 degrees for 50 minutes. Take foil off, and evenly sprinkle 1 Tbsp. of the reserved bacon and the last 1/2 C. of cheese. Bake and additional 10 minutes or until cheese is brown and crispy.

Peanut Butter Lovers Crispy Treats

Peant Butter Lovers Crispy treats

 

I am so in love with this recipe. If you are a peanut butter fan, like me, then you will love this recipe too. ¬†These treats are¬†crunchy,¬†ooey gooey, and loaded with peanut butter goodness. I ate an entire row of these babies by myself yesterday… that’s when I decided I needed to get them out of the house before one row became two, then three, then the entire pan. I decided the best thing to do was to take them over to my neighbor’s house. They were having a small pool party, perfect way to get this pan of ooey, gooey, goodness out of the house.
