I'm a nut!

  I guess you could say that I'm craving NuTS lately!  They are such a great snack & the saltiness is calling my name.  This is what our little "snack station" in the kitchen looks like right now & what you can't see is that Hectors' {the cookie jar} tummy is chuck full of Peanut Butter Choc. Chip cookies. Oh, he is a happy Owl today.   
{-Recipe Below-} 
-A full blown little buffet of salty sweetnes waiting to be eaten my hungry kids after school or guests that stop by for a visit-

Recently discovered these at Costco & they are really good.  Love the combination & different flavors that are all mixed together in the bowl.  Not to mention the pepper punch you get too. Unique & yummy! 

Here is what the package looks like.  I love the combination of cherries in with all the nuts such great flavor. Yum!

Love whole cashews to grab by the handful too.  Looks even tastier set out on the counter in this vintage bread tin.  

Raw Almonds too are set out for a healthy grab-n-go snack.  
{Or if you're like my hubby & I we chop them up & put them onto of our vanilla ice cream! ;)} 

I posted this pic last night on Instagram of some cookies I made to take over & share with our friends.  We get together EVERY Sunday night to watch the Amazing Race together.  It's been a tradition now for a couple of years.  We rotate houses each week & it's a blast.  We love the {S} family!  We always have quite the snack spread set out each week for us to watch the Race.  
{Do you & your family watch it?  My kids love it!} 

There were lots of requests for the recipe so here you go.  They really are great cookies to make- super easy & they always turn out great & look pretty to share.  
So much so that I ALWAYS double the batch!! 
{Got the recipe years ago off of Martha one day- I miss that show!}

1 Stick of Butter

Looks yummy! I'm going to have to make those cookies! I'm loving nuts lately too. My fave combo is salted cashews and almonds, honey roasted peanuts and white chocolate chips. Yum!!
