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 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...]

Cookie Dough Thumbprint Cookies and a Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook Review

Cookie Dough Thumprint Cookies

I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to have been given the opportunity to review The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook, by Lindsay Landis (of Love and Olive Oil Fame). I have been a fan of Lindsay's for ages, and from the minute I picked up this book I was amazed by her creativity and ideas. At First Glance: I loved this cookbook from the moment I picked it up. Before I even read any of the recipes, I noticed that the pictures (all taken by Lindsay herself- speak of talented!) are unbelievably eye-catching and drool-inducing. It's hard to look at this cookbook when you're on a diet (trust me, I had to do it!) because you will want to make every single thing in it. And you won't like not … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

peanut-butter-choc-chip-cookies

The other day I was talking to one of my coworkers about...what else? Cookies. He was mentioning his preferences in cookie flavors, when he made a shocking statement. "I don't like chocolate. And I don't like peanut butter." I opened my mouth in shock and horror. "My wife," he continued, "always says-" and at the exact same moment as he finished his wife's statement, I was verbalizing the exact same sentiment. "What is wrong with you?!" This may be insulting to some, especially to said coworker who had such nice things to say about my blog, but I truly believe that it's difficult to be happy without chocolate. Throw in some peanut butter? That's pretty much bliss. Assuming you are among … [Read more...]

Peanut Topped Peanut Butter Cookies

peanut-butter-cookies

If you've read my about me page, (c'mon, you know you're curious!) you know that I sell homemade cookies and other treats. It's a very side business, and I don't push it much, mostly because I simply have no time. I don't, however, like to turn down an order, as the money is going to a special fund for my SLR camera. Imagine how cool it will be to take pictures for the blog on something other than my iPhone? In general, I love to bake, and I am super happy to take an order. The problem is that sometimes a customer orders something that I am simply not in the mood to bake. That's what happened the other day. Someone emailed me asking if I could bake them a couple dozen peanut butter cookies. … [Read more...]
