If you, like me, have a fondness for chocolate and peanut butter, then you best hold onto your socks, because this here recipe will knock ‘em off!
(In the tradition of all things heavenly, here is a recipe my mother-in-law always used to make around this time of year.)
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Remove wrappers from chocolates. Set aside.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, cream together butter and peanut butter until well blended. Add the granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat until fluffy. Next add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Finally, blend in the flour mixture.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Then remove from the oven and immediately press a chocolate Kiss into the center of each cookie. Remove from the cookie sheet and place on a wire rack to cool.
Epiphany is celebrated on January 6, and commemorates the Magi’s visit to the Christ Child. Growing up, our church would celebrate with Epiphany Cakes, which were filled with trinkets signifying different things. A fun way to celebrate the twelve day of Christmas with your kids! (Note: Be careful with small objects; make sure kids know they’re in the cake.)
These would be the perfect cookies to make with kids on Christmas eve to set out for Santa! Not only are they cute and fun, but they’re absolutely delicious. A soft and chewy sugar cookie base with cream cheese frosting, white chocolate, chocolate chips, marshmallows and sprinkles!
The main thing to remember about peppernuts is that they are tiny, about a third to a half inch, no larger. Peppernuts are a tradition in many German families. They came to our area with the Mennonite immigration in the 1870′s. Imagine generations of people grabbing a handful or two of peppernuts and munching away and you have a tradition worth continuing.

She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
