Creamy Peanut Butter Dip

Creamy Peanut Butter Dip with Cinnamon Chips

The thing uppermost in our minds on the farm right now is a snowstorm that hit this week.  We haven’t had a snowstorm close to this bad since 1995 and it makes all the jobs on the farm so much harder.  On the other hand, it is so beautiful that John and I were speechless as we were driving around the side roads.  Okay, John was speechless, I was busy pointing out the obvious: “Look at the snow!”  “Look at the icicles!”  “What are you looking at?  You should be watching the road!”  I’m very helpful that way.

Since the parking lot is a mire of ice and snow, it’s been too dangerous to have the store open.  I miss my customers and my crew.  I also have way too much time on my hands so I’ve spent most of the week taking pictures of snow, icicles, and my cats.

No matter how much you spend on toys and beds, cats do what they want.

I also had some fun playing with recipes, which my family is really, really happy about right now.

Here’s a simple recipe that I’ve been wanting to try.  It turned out fabulous and share-worthy.   I was in a Valentine’s mood, so I made heart shaped cinnamon chips to go with it, but we liked it better with the apple slices.  This would be a wonderfully healthy after school snack served with fruit or celery.

Creamy Peanut Butter Dip

Spoon three tablespoons of peanut butter into a small bowl.

Peanut Butter

Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of honey.  Our yogurt is naturally sweet, so it only needed one tablespoon.  If you use Greek Yogurt, you will probably need more, depending on how sweet you like it.

Honey

By now, you may have noticed that I am left handed. 

Pour in 1 cup Appel Farms Yogurt.

Mix well.  That’s it!  It’s so easy that it hardly counts as a recipe.

Cinnamon Chips

Cut out whatever shapes you desire.

Flour Tortilla Cutouts

Brush on melted butter.

Tortillas and Butter

Spread them out on a parchment lined cookie sheet and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

Bake at 400ºF for 8-10 minutes.  The smaller shapes cooked much faster, only about 6 minutes.  I should have baked them separately.

ENJOY!
