I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Yin-Yang Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Gotta be honest here.  These were a little messy to make.  But well worth it.

Ingredients for chocolate side

1  1/2 cups baking mix (Bisquick)
3/4 cup margarine
3/4 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg

Ingredients for the peanut butter side

1  1/2 cups baking mix (Bisquick)
1  1/4 cups crunchy peanut butter
3/4 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
This Pampered Chef measuring cup is great for stuff like PB.
In separate bowls, mix the ingredients for the 2 cookie doughs, starting with the margarine for chocolate side and peanut butter for pb side, cream in the sugar.  Then add the other ingredients. The cocoa was a bit difficult to blend, but it finally worked in.

You might need to use your hands to blend well. And chilling the dough in the fridge for 15 minutes will help with handling.

Take a small scoop of each dough and flatten together.
I tried stacking them like this and rolling in my hand, but that just made a mess.

Just take two parts and press them together, then flatten with a fork or the flat side of a spatula.
Put them on a parchment lined baking sheet, a couple of inches apart, and bake at 375 F for 10 minutes.
Get a glass of milk ready.
