Just Desserts, Take 2 (The Recipes)

Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
(makes 1 13x9 pan, about 12 cookie bars)

1 cup sugar
1 cup white corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
4-5 cups rice krispies cereal

In a large pan, bring sugar and syrup to a slow boil.  Immediately remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter.  When combined, add cereal until desired thickness is reached.  Pour the mixture into a 13x9 in pan, and press to form a flat top.  Cool, then slice into bars to serve.

Molasses Cookies
(makes about 3 dozen)

  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger

  • 1/2 cup sugar

1.  In a large bowl, combine butter, 1 cup sugar, egg, molasses, baking soda, salt, ginger and cinnamon.  Add flour gradually.  Cover dough, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.

2.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Roll dough into one inch balls, and roll in 1/2 cup sugar to coat.  Place two inches apart on a cookie sheet, and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until tops appear crackled.
