I'm a huge fan of putting together two foods, each glorious in its own right, to create a culinary beast of awesomeness. (Hello, Corn Dog Brownies and Bacon-Stuffed Peeps!) So I was super excited to hear that Hormel, the makers of the good kind of Spam — yes there is a good kind, is buying peanut butter powerhouse Skippy! You can read more about it here. And then, you can make these Spam and Skippy cookies.
I thought it fitting to use Skippy's Classic Peanut Butter Cookie recipe as a base. So thank you, Skippy. Thank you, Hormel. And you're welcome, world.
Spam and Skippy Cookies
The candied Spam gives the cookie a nice chewy aspect (it's like bacon but chunkier), and I think the addition of the Reese's really brings out the flavor of the peanut butter. This was, surprisingly, an impressive cookie.
And do you know what else is impressive? With this recipe, you'll discover that you will have some leftover Spam. Just enough for a lovely Peanut Butter and Jelly Spamwich for lunch...
and an afternoon snack of Ants on a Log (of Spam)...
Enjoy! I know I did!
