Peanut Butter and Reese Piece Cookies

I am a happy Momma.  I got to see both of my kids this weekend.  Cally was home for the weekend to help at the firehouse's Chicken Dinner and Billy came home to visit today.  So it was extra special that I had them both home on the same day!

Bill and I were on vacation last week and we went to Bowling Green Kentucky to the Corvette Assembly plant and also to visit the Corvette Museum.  We had a great time.  We were able to tour the assembly plant.  That was a really neat experience.  We were able to walk through the plant, with a guide, and actually see corvettes being made on the assembly line.  This was the last week for the tours as they are preparing to start the new generation of corvettes called C7.  There was a section of the plant that was all boarded up so that we could not see what was going on behind the wall....I bet it would have been interesting to be able to see.

I made these Peanut Butter and Reese Piece cookies a couple weeks ago.  I sent some home with Cally and then dropped some in the mail to Billy.  The kids really liked them.
