Just about every day there is a National Food Holiday that one could celebrate. Therefore, I decided that it would be fun if I select some of these food holidays and create a recipe to go with it on my blog. I am not going to do all of them though because some of the holidays celebrate food that I don't like, and that would just be too much work. Sometimes i may even provide some fun facts that are related to the food of the day, but that all depends on how much time I have.
Anyways, let me begin with today's food holiday, there is actually more than one today, but I am going to celebrate National Homemade Cookies Day. To celebrate this day I made White Chocolate Wonderful Peanut Butter Cookies. And let me just say these cookies are wonderful. As I was shopping with my mom the other day I saw some peanut butter that caught my eye. It is put out by a company called Peanut Butter & Co and the it was called White Chocolate Wonderful; it is a peanut butter with flecks of white chocolate throughout it. When I got home I tried some and decided that I must make peanut butter cookies with this. They came out so good and they are also a great way to celebrate National Homemade Cookie Day.
