Oatmeal Peanut Butter Skillet Cookies

For the past 10 weeks, I have been updating you on my Half Marathon progress.  Well, now it is over! So, I guess I'll update you on my post-half marathon progress.  It took me a while to get back out there running.  I was a little lazy and a little sore.  However, after a difficult three mile run the Tuesday after, I attempted a 4 mile run on Wednesday and felt much better.  By Friday and Saturday, I was feeling like myself again and even got up to a 6 mile run.  I also did my cross training work out video which was especially difficult because of my sore legs and because I skipped it the week before.  All in all, it was good and I am glad I pushed myself to get back into my routine.  Now, I need to find another Half to train for.  I am totally addicted!

Today's recipe is super yummy and definitely something you should all indulge in.  I have cute miniature cast iron skillets and I have decided that the best use for them is to make miniature skillet cookies.  These are perfectly sized to be split by Bri and I and they encourage the use of ice cream as a topping.  Don't they sound wonderful?  Last week, I made Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies in them and threw in some chopped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  YUM! I used my recipe for whole wheat peanut butter oatmeal cookies and halved it.  Then, the batter fit perfectly into my two miniature skillets.
