Peanut Butter Cookie Bars

Peanut Butter Cookie Bars {A Pretty Life}

I made the most delicious peanut butter cookie bar recipe today.  The most delicious I tell you.  I seriously cannot stop eating these little bars of peanut butter deliciousness.  Peanut butter is one of my biggest weaknesses, and combine it with a cookie batter, I can't stop.  Won't stop. These cookie bars are sweet, soft, and mega peanut buttery.  I underbaked mine just a smidge, but I like cookies and bars soft and chewy, and underbaking them makes them just perfect.  You need to make them. … [Read more...]

For the past few years I've participated in a local blogger bake sale here in Calgary in support for various charities.  I always enjoy baking for these events because not only is it for a good cause, it's also a great opportunity for me to meet and work with local food bloggers!  This past weekend was our most recent bake sale in support of Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids...a charity that works in partnership with Calgary schools to make and deliver free healthy lunches for students who would o … [Read more...]

Hi friends!  We made it to day #5 of Christmas Cookie week! Whew, am I exhausted...but it's a good kind of exhausted!  I've enjoyed every minute of putting together these posts for you!  Ok, well maybe not all the mess I've created...my house pretty much fell apart this week, but what's a gal to do when she's baking!  My daughter had a friend over yesterday, and it always seems to be the days I'm immersed in a project of some sort, so I'm sure her friends think we live in the messiest house eve … [Read more...]
