Chewy Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies are delicious - without any butter or margarine!) ***Before we start – have you signed up for my email newsletters? You’ll get new recipes, cooking tips, menu suggestions, kitchen deals  – and more! Click here to signup.*** What is it about a snow storm that makes people want to bake cookies? I dunno, but there's definitely something about that. In anticipation, I planned to post this recipe yesterday. I figured that with the Northeast all snowed in under a "blizzard of the century," you'd all be baking cookies, and would appreciate a new one to try. Well, turns out that the entire world (or so it seems) was baking cookies, but … [Read more...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches on OvertimeCook

Ok folks. I have a confession to make. This isn't a new recipe. It's...two years old. Here's the deal. I have been super busy with some other stuff, and haven't been devoting as much time to the kitchen - particularly baking. So I dug through my files of Ami recipes for a fun summery treat that y'all might not have seen. This recipe was published over two years ago...how many of you were even reading this blog then?! Well, just cause it aint new, doesn't mean it isn't really delicious. The title might be a bit misleading, because it's not *really* ice cream in the middle, but it's creamy and served frozen so I'm taking my creative license to bat here. Anywho. This recipe is really … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Caramel Truffles

truffles on overtimecook

Peanut Butter Caramel Truffles are a little taste of heaven! Every now and then, I make something that's so delightful, words fail to describe it. These truffles are a perfect example. I originally made these truffles for a Tzedaka (charity) party. I probably dreamed up this crazy combination at the height of a chocolate craving, but whatever made me do it, they were a smashing success. Just as the party was starting, before much food was even touched, these truffles were gone. That's right, completely gone. All the poor souls who hadn't gotten there fast enough to try one were pretty sad. Needless to day, I needed to share this recipe with you folks. They're a little time consuming … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Filled Brownie Hamantaschen

peanut butter filled brownie hamantaschen

A cross between a hamantasch and a peanut butter cup, these Peanut Butter Filled Brownie Hamantaschen will be the most delicious cookie you've tasted! I don't say this lightly, but I've invented the most delicious hamantaschen ever. I know, it's a big claim to make, but let's talk about the awesomeness of these cookies. Nowadays, everyone is scrambling to invent the cutest, prettiest, most exciting hamantaschen ever. And the ideas keep exploding. But here's the thing. I like pretty food. I like exciting food. Hey, I even like cute food. But for me, that's always secondary. First, in my book, will always be taste. If it tastes great, it's great. If it looks awesome - that's a … [Read more...]

Oatmeal Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

Oatmeal Peanut Butter M&M Cookies on Overtime Cook

These dense and crunchy Oatmeal Peanut Butter M&M Cookies are a party in your mouth! Read on... I can't even tell you how many times I intended to post this recipe. I made it a whole bunch of times. And each time these adorable looking cookies got rave reviews. But somehow I never managed to write down the recipe. And worse, never got to photograph these cookies. And so for months, these cookies went un-posted. And that's a shame, because they're really delicious. So I sacrificed for all of you. I baked up yet another batch of these cookies. On a fast day, of all days. Big mistake. These smell amazing when they bake, and my entire family was quite unhappy with me, forced to smell … [Read more...]

Rice Krispy Treat Bark

rice kriispy treat bark on overtimecook

Today's post is really good timing. And no, I don't mean that this is a fabulous last minute Purim treat if you're still stuck on what to make for your Mishloach Manot (purim basket). Although it totally is a fabulous purim treat...etc. The reason this post is very timely is that there was in an interesting discussion on Facebook recently regarding recipe sources and credits and things. And the question came up if there's a possibility of complete coincidences in recipes. The answer? Yes. How do I know? Because of this recipe. Before I explain, let me say that recipe attribution is a very important issue, and one I feel very passionate about. But sometimes, two people might just have … [Read more...]

Brownie Bites with Peanut Butter Frosting

brownie bites 1

I recently came to an awful realization. I've been a horribly neglectful blogger. I am sorry. Really, I am. But this blog is almost a year and a half old, and to date, I only have one brownie recipe posted. Two, if you count my brownie pies. But clearly that isn't enough. I mean, is there even such a thing as "enough" brownies? I don't think so either.  I realized this as I was going to sleep late on Saturday night. (And if you stalk my Instagram feed, you know that was about a million o'clock, when most of you were probably near waking up.) Anyway, I rectified the situation less than 24 hours later. And I think I made up for over a year of no brownie posts with these amazing treats. … [Read more...]

Baked Peanut Butter or Nutella Donuts

baked donuts

Remember how I recently discussed how hard I find the process of making decisions? Well tonight's post is basically a post script to that one, because if you thought deciding between pecan pie or brownies was hard, imagine trying to decide between chocolate glazed peanut butter donuts or glazed nutella (chocolate hazelnut) donuts! I know, it totally boggles the mind. Well I, for one, don't believe in making such difficult decisions. So I thought to myself...why choose? Yep, that's right. I made both peanut butter donuts and nutella donuts. Which means, if you think about it, that these donuts are super easy to make. Because I started making them late at night, and still had time and … [Read more...]
