Well Thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday. I’m not a fan of pie crust, stuffing, mashed potatoes, rolls, cranberry sauce, turkey skin…So I guess you could say I like turkey, corn, squash, and pie filling. For some reason I feel unAmerican by stating this but I just feel like there are better foods to eat. I digress. So to get in the Thanksgiving spirit I made some peanut butter cookies with a white chocolate peanutbutter glaze. The glaze took this cookie from I will never make this again to…I’d make this again and bake the cookies for less time.
The recipe I used is linked below. I did make some modifications.I decided to use a little less sugar and added some applesauce to replace the 1/4 cup of extra butter.
These modifications may have been my downfall. I guess I will try making the recipe as stated or just find a better chocolate cookie recipe. My glaze though was super easy and made these cookies delicious.
- white chocolate candy melts
- peanut butter
- food coloring
Melt the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. Stir in peanut butter to taste. I added about 1/4 cup of peanut butter to almost a cup of un-melted candy melts. Then mix in food coloring for any colors you desire. I just did orange and red because I wanted semi-realistic turkey cookies. In another mood I made have gone with blue and white turkeys.

Clearly, you can see the glaze is worth it. So now more pictures!
