These are some cookies that I made to send to one of my best friends, who just happens to be stationed in Iraq right now. He’s coming home (to Denver) in a couple of weeks for 2 weeks of R&R, and will then be returning to Iraq for another 5 months of duty. He’ll be coming back to the United States just in time for my wedding in May and I’m excited that he will be able to be there.
Unfortunately, these cookies never made it to him. Apparently, the USPS decided that my package was not good enough to get to Iraq (although I think it did get all the way over there because it was gone from my house for a month before it showed back up again). Kevin’s name was scratched out and there was no indication of why it never made it to its final destination. I know that Kevin is just fine because I have talked to him several times since I got the package back. But, needless to say, even the best vacuum bags in the world couldn’t keep Kevin’s batch of cookies from returning to me as a crumbled and dried out disgusting mess. Better luck next time, I suppose.
Anyway, these Chocolate Peanut Butter cookies are my version of some that were featured on Picky Palate a while back. I thought they looked awesome and wanted to give them a try. The cookies were very unique and I think a lot of people would have enjoyed them if they had actually gotten to the soldiers. For the recipe, click HERE.
