Nat’l Peanut Butter Lover’s Day

There is new love in my life, and since tomorrow is National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day, I decided I should publicly profess it. With great pleasure, I introduce to you the Peanut Butter Oatmeal Sandwich Cookie from Cocoa and Fig.

A few weeks ago when I was at dinner with some business associates in Minneapolis, they extolled the deliciousness of the cake lollipops at Cocoa & Fig, a little shop that I just so happened to have walked right past a few hours before. On my journey to catch the train to the airport the next day, I passed by once again, so my boss and I decided to stop and see for ourselves what all the fuss was about.

While the cake pops were mighty fine, they paled in comparison to this cookie.

Forget the Girl Scouts, this is the Rated X version of a Do-Si-Do. Buttery, chewy, moist and salty all at once, they leave me wondering how something so heavenly can feel so very sinful!

Being the thoughtful guy he is, my boss showed up at the office on Friday with an entire bag of these he’d picked up on his latest trip. Yes, I did share with some of my co-workers, but believe me, it was extremely difficult!

So how about you– do you have  favorite peanut butter treat? If so, is it homemade or store-bought? Please give me the scoop because I’d really like to try something new in honor of tomorrow’s holiday :-)
