Guest Post from Todd&Lindsey

While I am getting used to having a newborn around some wonderful bloggers has stepped in to help out with some fabulous guest posts! Don't worry I will be popping in here and there to give updates and of course do the Show Off Your Stuff Party! We have a great line up for you all!

Up Next is Lindsey from Todd & Lindsey

Hello there! I'm Lindsey from toddlindsey.com. (I know, how original, right?) 

I'm an art teacher that spends ALL my free time crafting, cooking, baking, making miniatures and in general, just detoxing myself from kids and school. I love the creative process of making. Anything. I especially love when that process results in food. Or really beautiful things. Or cute things. 

I guess I should share who Todd is, since he is the other part of our blog name. :) Todd is my very outgoing, comic-loving husband of a little over one year. Todd and I have three children... I mean pets. Lily and Jose are cats and Banner is our beagle! They all turned five at the beginning of the year. (No, that's not a coincidence; I just made all their birthdays at the same time for the sake of my sanity... Can I do that for our future kids?) 

Feel free to visit us at toddlindsey.com for easy and yummy recipes, DIY home decor, room reveals, dollhouse miniatures and more! 

Now on to the sweet stuff. 

I am SUPER excited to share this recipe with you all. Oh. My. Goodness. These cookies are amazing! And really easy to assemble. I got this awesome recipe from my friend Becca. Once you try these, you will never want to go back to boring Peanut Butter Blossoms. :) Okay, so that may not be true. But trust me, these are so good!!!

Ok. So you start off real complicated with some store bought refrigerated dough. I bought this kind:

You will also need a bag of Reese's cups. (Funny story: So I always pretty much know what's in my pantry. I like to keep a bag of peanut butter cups on hand so I knew I had a full bag in my pantry when I started this baking project. Howeverrrrr, when I went to go make these, I realized someone *hint hint* had eaten almost the whole bag! Thatsomeone left a measly two cups left. I had to run to the store, which is literally across the street, to restock!)

But back on track now.

Separate the dough according the the pre-portioned pieces.

Place some mini muffin liners in a mini muffin tin. Place one lil' mound of dough into each liner. They are so cute right now! :)

Bake for 9-11 minutes at 350*. While they are baking, unwrap all the peanut butter cups. Try not to eat any!

When the cookies are done, gently press a Reese's cup in the center of each cookie. Work quickly!

Remove to a wire rack to cool. They are yummy warm, room temperature or cold!

Don't eat them all in one sitting! I mean, it will totally be worth it "in the moment".

Is your mouth watering yet? I know mine is!

I look forward to having you visit toddlindsey.com soon!

After reading your post I'm now so hungry! I'm in Borneo at the moment where I just can't get my hands on any of these ingredients, let alone do any cooking. I'll just have to stare at the lovely pictures until I can give the recipe a go at home! Just started following your blog Todd and Lindsey :)
