The only thing missing was the peanut butter.
When I travel, I buy packages of nuts or trail mix at the convenient store/gas stations when we stop. I don't eat the nuts or trail mix when I get home, but for some reason I feel like I must munch on something when I'm riding in the car. Maybe it is boredom. I rarely eat the whole package of these nuts or trail mixes. When I get home, these packages of nuts, trail mixes and such go into the pantry. Today when I was looking for something to eat for lunch, I spied these various packages of nuts and trail mixes I had bought on my various trips we took in the past couple of months. I decided they would be good made into some cookies. I found a basic trail mix cookie recipe online, but then I made up my own recipe as I went along. I rarely make a recipe like it says, but I do need a gauge of how much sugar, flour, eggs, baking soda and salt to put in them. Then, I added the packages of nuts, trail mixes, some chocolate chips and some coconut. The only thing missing was the peanut butter!
I decided to try just one cookie as I needed to make sure they are good enough to take to church for the coffee hour. They came out pretty good! Next time I'll add the peanut butter.
