Sunday, the big game

I'm not really a football fan, but any excuse for party food - so I am making:

[*For the wienies, the official Pillsbury doughboy recipe calls for crescent dinner rolls as wrapping; I think the rolls taste awful; I use poppin biscuit dough instead. I think it is important to have standards when it comes to processed, pre-packaged foods, like only buying the type of jello cups that have to be refrigerated - god only knows how they make the ones that stay jelled at room temperature do that ...]

Pictures and more recipes ....

So these are from a recipe I got off the web ages ago, and it says it is from the mom of one of the members of hootie & the blowfish - so we call them hootie swirls.

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (crunchy is best)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1 12 oz. bag chocolate chips
Mix butter, peanut butter, sugars and eggs till fluffy (in an electric mixer if you have one). Add baking powder, salt and vanilla, then flour and chocolate chips. Spread batter in a greased or sprayed 13 x 9 x 2 in. baking pan, and bake at 350 for 5 minutes. Remove the pan form the oven, and swirl the chocolate with a knife. Return to the oven and bake about 25 minutes longer, until set but still gooey.
