Today I went to Trader Joe’s.
My bank account now hates me.
But I did come back with these babies.
I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.
Once I saw Jenna’s cookies over at Eat, Live, Run, I knew I had to make them immediately. [Check out her site for the recipe!].
I started with some butter and brown sugar in a bowl.
Then creamed them together until creamy.
Next came the secret ingredient. Well maybe not so secret. TJ’s Sunflower Seed Butter aka crack.
I just mixed the sunflower seed butter in with the creamed butter and sugar until combined.
Then I added an egg and a bit of vanilla.
Mixed it all up.
Then I added the dry ingredients: Flour, salt, baking powder to the wet ingredients.
Then I just mixed in the chocolate covered sunflower seeds.
I just scooped them onto a lined baking sheet like so.
Aren’t those little dough balls adorable??
I gave them a smush to make them flatter like discs. Then popped them into a a preheated 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes.
Out came these babies.
These were killer cookies.
If you like peanut butter cookies, try these immediately.
Perfect for Easter!!
Then as I was doing dishes, this happened.
I almost cried.
Great. Now what??
Guess I’m busting out the good old french press tomorrow.
Have I mentioned that I haven’t used a french press in years?
Yea, this should be interesting…
I’m going to watch the musical Grey’s episode.
Excited for some fun stuff planned tomorrow! Stay tuned!
