First of all, hi!
Second of all, its August?!
Third of all, lets chat a little bit about living in Maryland, shall we?
Ok, so this article pretty much sums up why its so great. But what it doesn’t talk about is the absolute insane weather situation. We can have 80 degree days randomly in December, and then on days like today, the first day of August its in the 60s, raining, and totally drab.
Ain’t nobody got time for that.
So, what to do, what to do when the weather throws us a curve ball?
MAKE COOKIES, OF COURSE!
Like these ones.
These cookies are definitely the best cure for a dreary day. They are like a cross between your traditional peanut butter cookie and a good ol’ chocolate chip cookie! They are soft, thick, and packed with the heavenly combination of peanut butter, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. These sweet and salty flavors play off each other so well and really come together to create the perfect bite.
And I’ll tell you a secret…these cookies are incredibly amazing no matter what the weather is doing ;)
