I am a self described cookie monster. I LOVE cookies and I know that the holiday season will be rife with all kinds of cookies. So I’m planning ahead and keeping recipes like these Weight Watchers Peanut Butter Cookies handy to keep myself and my points on track.
I am the first to admit it: Before I got married, my idea of preparing a meal was heating up Chinese take-out food in the microwave. Eventually, at the behest of my newlywed husband who wanted a “home-cooked meal on the table every night,” I tried my hand at cooking pasta. My fatal flaw was that while the pasta was boiling in the pot, I took a shower and conveniently forgot about it until the smoke alarm went off and a mini fire erupted in the kitchen. Suffice it to say, I am not one of those moms who can whip up vegetable baked ziti or bake raisin scones.
Despite my lack of cooking skills, my daughter’s been asking me recently if we can start cooking dinner together. So, I’m slowly inching my way back into the kitchen and we’ve actually prepared some tasty meals together.
The best part about cooking with my daughter is that while we’re working together, dicing vegetables or measuring out condiments, we manage to have the best conversations talking about things I’d usually have to beg her to share with me, And this Weight Watchers Peanut Butter Cookies recipe is a perfect activity that parents and kids can take part in together, rather than attempt forced conversation. Keep reading for the recipe!
