picture this: a holiday party is coming up + you’ve offered to bring a dessert. but wait, this isn’t just any ol’ holiday party — this is the nashville food bloggers holiday potluck, so the dessert needs to be delicious + impressive. thankfully, i had a bookmarked recipe just waiting to be baked. peanut butter cookies with salted peanut caramel. sounds pretty yummy, doesn’t it? trust me, they were!
the peanut butter cookie is crumbly + rich, + the salted peanut caramel is simply divine — beyond decadent, with a perfect combination of sweet + salty notes. + as an added bonus, they turned out looking just gorgeous. they were a huge hit with the food bloggers, which says a lot, as these people know their food! even those who don’t normally love sweets were raving about them. that’s just how great they were!
the cookbook the recipe came from, So Sweet: Cookies, Cupcakes, Whoopie Pies + More, is full of absolutely wonderful-looking desserts. if these cookies are any indication, the rest of the recipes in the book will be incredibly amazing. i’ve got my eye on a few recipes to try ASAP — gingerbread whoopie pies with orange buttercream filling + rocky road cupcakes, to name a few. + one lucky reader will to win a copy of So Sweet - how cool is that?!
