It could have all worked out, if only Mama hadn’t been yammering away, shooting her mouth off when she picked us up at daycare last month. She had her panties all in a twist about these doggy eggs and she told Miss Karrie about them. WELL! Miss Karrie was just as excited about the eggies as Mama was – and promptly ordered a whole bunch (500!) in Easter Baskets for her client appreciation day today – an Easter Egg hunt!
Well, it was all well and good for Mama to TALK about eggies, now she had to make them! BOL…let’s see you work you’re way outta this one lady.
Well, Mama set right to work. You should have seen the hot mess she made – flour everywhere, molding eggs by hand, trying to figure out just *how* she was going to fulfill this extravagant promise. The first batch she rolled into egg shapes, but they didn’t cook in the middle. The next batch she used an egg cookie cutter – and they were GREAT, but it felt a little like cheating. She started to get that harried, too many sleepless nights look – hollow eyes, pale skin, that wild look in her eyes of desperation. Just how was she going to do this? It was a real open snout/insert paw moment.
Finally – it came to her and she started making peanut butter eggs – adorable little sandwich cookies shaped like an egg and dipped in yogurt coating. YUM! They’re not bad eh!
But alot of work. Mama says they wouldn’t have been so bad without the yogurt coating on top.
WITHOUT THE YOGURT COATING? What the bark?! But Mama! That’s what made them pretty!
Wanna try em?
1/3 cup natural, unsweetened peanut butter

1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup natural, unsweetened peanut butter
Yogurt melting chips

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Stir together peanut butter, banana, egg & honey. Stir in oatmeal. (Add extra oatmeal, if necessary, to make a fry, unsticky dough).
Using a half – tablespoon or a tablespoon (you know the cute plastic egg shaped ones?) form egg halves. (I had to beat the spoon against the side of the bowl to get the dough out.)
