Every week besides the TWD selection, I usually make something else to either share or to have for dessert during the week. If I'm making anything to share with the MKM it needs to be easily transportable.
I have the Martha Stewart Cookie book but seem to stick with just making my favorites. I saw someone who I can't remember post on their blog about making Grammy's Chocolate Cookies from the book and so I made them a few weeks ago, with a couple of additions. I added some dried tart cherries and some semi-sweet chocolate chips. These were delicious, they were moist, a nice shape and the taste was spot on. I forget to take a picture though.
Another easily transportable cookie I made recently are these Peanut Butter-Nutella cookies I found on our local newspaper's food columnist website. There was a little tinkering done with the recipe, I added semi-sweet chocolate chips (isn't everything better with chocolate chips?). They recieved a thumbs up, although the Nutella flavor wasn't as prominent as I would have liked.
Last night, since Glee was not on because of the World Series (boooo), I made Ina Garten's Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars. These are fabulous, I used a mixture of half strawberry preserves and half cherry preserves for the jam part because it's what I had in the fridge. I made a massive pan full though so some of these will be going to be enjoyed by other people.
