You all know I love to keep the baking simple, easy and creative, not only for myself but for you also. By using Lucky Leaf Pie Filling, we can create simple yet impressive desserts for our family and friends. The Tartlets are baked in 4 inch Tart Pans that we found at a Kitchen Supply store, you can also find them online. There’s just something about each person having their own little dessert that’s so tempting.

Creating desserts in the Spring is my favorite time. I’m not quite sure if it’s all the fresh flavors like lemon, lime or strawberry, or how light and refreshing they are. Oh and let’s not forget blueberries, these Blueberry Snack Bars from Lucky Leaf look heavenly and super easy by starting with a cake mix.

Many moons ago, I would watch my Mom bake pies with the strawberries that my Dad picked from the garden. Although I loved that time, life seems to be much more complicated now, so it’s nice knowing that I can count on Lucky Leaf Ready-to-Use Pie Fillings. These Strawberry White Chocolate Trifles, remind me of the No Bake Cheesecake Trifles from last Summer, they are super easy to put together yet impressive looking.

And speaking of easy, this Cherry Pineapple Cabana Cake would be perfect for your Easter celebration. It doesn’t get any easier than this my friends, whomever invented Dump Cake is brilliant. Just as the name implies, you just dump the ingredients and while it bakes it creates a luscious dessert that will make everyone think you spent hours in the kitchen.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

There’s nothing better than a soft, warm cookie straight from the oven. Now these aren’t your normal, everyday run of the mill Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie, they are special! With the mixture of two kinds of oats, peanut butter and nuts, they are extra special!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies | Recipe on

Like most of the cookies that I bake, these are just slightly under baked, and they turn out soft, and oh so good!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies | Recipe on

The recipe is pretty typical with flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and butter. Begin by combining peanut butter and nuts in the food processor until smooth.

Then in a mixing bowl, continue with the normal cookie ingredients – butter, brown and white sugars are beat until fluffy, then the peanut butter mixture and vanilla are added.

Then the egg is added, and the dry ingredients. Last comes the 2 kinds of oats, giving the cookie softness and different textures.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

A delicious cookie, that you could even have for breakfast with the added protein from the peanut butter, nuts and oats. Recipe from


  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup nuts, chopped {I used walnuts, the recipe called for pecans, either are great}

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup {1 stick} butter, room temp
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup quick cooking oats


  1. Combine peanut butter and chopped nuts in the food processor and mix until almost smooth
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt, set aside
  3. In a large bowl, beat together butter and both sugars until light and fluffy
  4. Add peanut butter mixture and vanilla, beat to blend well
  5. Beat in egg
  6. Add dry ingredients, mix well
  7. Add oats, mix well

  9. Cover with plastic and place in fridge for at least an hour

  15. If you want a soft cookie, slightly under bake them {9 minutes} if you like a crisp cookie, bake them for 11 minutes. For the soft cookies, they will look a little doughy in the middle, but don't worry, they continue baking a bit after you remove them from the oven.
