Here in Lubbock the weather has been rather warm. When I looked at the outdoor thermometer today it showed 88 degrees. One of the sayings in this part of the country is .. if you don't like the weather just wait a couple of hours and it will change. That is pretty much the truth. One day it can be down in the 20s and 30s and two days later it is 89 degrees. I had to turn on the air conditioner because it was so hot.

The kitties have been happy that I am spending so much time at home. I have enjoyed having a little time off but am actively searching for a part time job. I had forgotten what it was like to have evenings at home. It has been nice to sit in my recliner, watch TV, and have two kitties in my lap. I have had some time to watch Acorn TV and all their British mysteries. The cats are glad I am home with them in the evenings.

1/4 c. water
1 tsp. cornstarch
6 boneless loin pork chops, each about 4-oz. and 1/2-in. thick

Start fire in grill, placing rack about 6 inches above coals.

Peanut Butter Stuffed Cookies Recipe
Makes 12 Large Cookies


For Filling
1 c. smooth peanut butter
1/2 c. powdered sugar

For Cookies
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. (1 stick) Butter, softened
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar (plus more for rolling)
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. kosher salt

Preheat oven to 375° and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.

Make filling: In a medium bowl, combine peanut butter and powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Scoop into small balls (about 1 1/2") and freeze until ready to use.

Make cookies: In a large bowl, combine peanut butter, butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat with a hand mixer on medium until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and mix until thoroughly combined. Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix until just combined. Scoop heaping tablespoon of the cookie dough and flatten into a flat, pancake-like circle. Place the frozen peanut butter ball on top. Bring the edges of the dough around the frozen peanut butter ball and pinch the edges together to seal, adding more dough if necessary to cover the frozen peanut butter completely. Roll stuffed cookie dough ball in sugar and place on baking sheet. Repeat until all dough is used, spacing the cookies about 2” apart. Bake until the cookies are golden on the bottom, about 12-15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
