12 Days Of Cookies

So this is what day 5 of this cookie lovers dream event I am doing? Yep, that is right, it is day 5. I have a beautiful recipe for you today.

Let’s recap:

Day 1 Lemon Pomegranate Cookies

Day 2 Chocolate Cookie Butter Blossoms

Day 3 Candied Cinnamon Swirls

Day 4 Amaretto Toffee Oat Balls

A good Christmas cookie tray should have a cookie for everyone’s taste buds. That is what I believe anyway. So a peanut butter type cookie should be included on it.

Before I get into this Almost A Nutter Butter Cookie. I want to ask, how are you doing this holiday season? I am doing ok. My stress levels now that the hospital is open is down I will admit. However, I have been tired and a little achy lately. I am not getting sick, but I think it is from all the stress from my work moving to a hospital instead of a family health center.

If I am still feeling this way in a few weeks, I think I may want to get my thyroid check. I know this is signs that my thyroid might be going blah. In fact, I think for 2017 I am going to make my health my numbe=or one priority. Next, is losing weight, and third I think will be saving money.

Putting my health first, by that I mean by just loving me. It is that health that people tend to forget about. Some call it mental health, I call it “me” health. I need to remember I am one hell of a woman and I am amazing.

Ok, let’s get to this Almost A Nutter Butter Cookie. I wanted to do something different than the normal peanut butter cookie. Actually, when I decided to do these 12 cookies. I wanted to do cookies that are different than all those cookies that are on cookie trays. I love peanut butter cookies like the next person, but it is Christmas time, it’s time to make different cookies.

I was glancing through a Kopy Cat cookbook and saw this almost nutter butter cookie recipe. What a great idea! I know more people who absolutely adore Nutter Butters. So I decided why not and made these yummy cookies.
