Fun with your favorite Peanuts characters and a great fall #recipe Peanut butter and Pumpkin Butter cookies




I love Peanuts year-round, of course (who doesn’t?)—but when October rolls around, I get especially excited, because we’re officially kicking off PEANUTS HOLIDAY SEASON! There’s nothing better than Halloween with Linus and the Great Pumpkin, Thanksgiving with Charlie Brown’s disastrous dinner, and of course, the classic Charlie Brown Christmas.


To get the mood going, I recently got this package of Peanuts holiday goodies from Oriental Trading Company, which offer a variety of ways to bring the spirit of Peanuts into Halloween and Thanksgiving festivities! From fun art projects to must have holiday accessories, Oriental Trading has everything you could need! 
All of these great Peanuts items from Oriental Trading put me in the holiday mood,  I know I loved making cookies with my mom as a kid, and my daughter enjoys baking with me as much as I loved baking with my mom. We decided on making something a friend had told us about, we switched it up a bit and came up with amazing Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Butter cookies.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Butter cookies
Makes 4 dozen cookies:

½ cup butter
½ cup Peanut Butter
½ cup sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
1 egg
½ teaspoon of vanilla
2 tablespoons of Pumpkin butter (or apple butter if you would like)
2 cups of flour
½ tea spoon of baking soda
¼ teaspoon of salt
¼  teaspoon of cinnamon
½ cup of additional sugar
¼  teaspoon of additional cinnamon
Keep ½ cup of sugar in a bowl, and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon aside. Mix Butter, and peanut butter. Add sugars egg, vanilla and apple butter. Mix flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, stir into creamed mixture. Roll mix into ½ inch balls, then roll the balls into the extra sugar & cinnamon.  Place balls on cookie sheet about one inch apart.  Flatten each ball slightly with the back of a fork. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. 
These cookies came out amazing! The cookies were soft and had a great touch of peanut and pumpkin flavor that my family loved.  This would be a great recipe to make with the kids, the kids could be in charge of rolling the cookie balls and dipping them in the sugar. These would be great to make together for any fall get togethers!


Colorfully decorated laminated bags—perfect for trick-or-treating Halloween crayons and a sign craft kit—fun for creating spooky decorations Finger puppets with the characters in their Halloween costumes—adorable party favors Halloween and Thanksgiving plates, napkins, cups, popcorn boxes—for hosting the greatest Peanuts-themed parties and dinners ever!


Prices range from $2.20 to $21.99, and the items are available at orientaltrading.com. And the happy memories will last all the way until next year’s holiday season!


Do you have a favorite Peanuts decoration or accessory?
