I have been on a cookie binge lately.  Something about the cooler weather just makes a good batch of butter, flour, and sugar too irresistible!  My taste buds love it, but my skinny jeans do not.  So although I have more yummy cookie recipes to share (even some more pumpkin varieties) I am going to take a detour to savory town with these delicious Firecrackers.

When I haven't been baking amazing cookies, I have been watching football.  Actually, sometimes I have been dong both!  It's been a pretty good fall.  I love to munch on foods while I am watching football.  And these firecrackers are perfect "munching" food.  Just be careful because it is too easy to accidentally munch on the entire batch!

Peanut Butter Snickers Cookie

Halloween has passed on November is officially upon us.  (I hope you are all ready for Christmas commercials, because I have already seen several!)  I had a decent amount trick-or-treaters this year, and enjoyed every one of them.  But I did still have some candy leftover.  You won't hear me complain about that, because I bought some good stuff this year!

By "the good stuff" I mean my favorite candy bar--Snickers.  I don't always eat candy bars.  But when I do, I eat Snickers.  They are tremendous.  I also greatly enjoy peanut butter cookies.  So why not put them together?  One great treat + another great treat = 1 really great treat!  If you have some leftover Snickers from Halloween, do yourself a favor and use them to make these awesome cookies.  If you don't have any leftover Snickers from Halloween, take advantage of candy clearance and get some!
