Peanut Butter Cookies with Reese's Pieces Recipe

I don't know about you, but for me May is a busy month.   It seems that a lot of things are starting or ending right now. We finished up dance, so of course we had dance recitals. We started T-ball and coach pitch for the little girls, so that means practices and games. We've had Karate belt graduation and a track meet for my son. School is ending so there are end-of-school projects and programs to attend. On top of the extra things are the regular everyday things that still need to be done like laundry, dishes, and dinner. Plus the yard work now that it's warm. Last week I barely sat down the whole week and the next two don't look much different.

 Can you tell I'm a bit stressed? When things get crazy, the first thing I let go is the blog. I've been blogging long enough to realize that it's not the end of the world if I miss posting for a week or two. My family and my sanity are much more important. With summer coming and having the kids home all day, I won't have as much time to blog anyway. I'm going to try to post once a week until fall. Then I'm hoping to really start focusing on blogging again.

Now on to the cookies! These peanut butter cookies are perfect for busy days. You make the dough ahead of time and keep it in the fridge.  Stick them in the oven as you sit down to dinner and you can have warm delicious cookies for dessert.

 These cookies are packed with peanut butter flavor, with just the right amount of chocolate thrown in.

Much to my daughter's dismay {since she's allergic} I've made these twice in the last month. I always make sure to have a treat for her too.
