    The last time I went to TJ's I was on a serious budget, so I couldn't really spare money for experimenting. I did pick up a box of their graham crackers and OMG, they are delicious! I'm not much of a sweets eater, so these are all I need in the way of cookies.

    1/4 cup TJ's Dried Tart Montmorency Cherries
    1/4 cup TJ's Walnut Halves and Pieces
    1 box TJ's Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

    Preheat the oven to 350°. Bring the butter to room temperature and combine the eggs with the butter and whisk/ mix. Slowly add in the brownie mix. Once the mixture is uniform, add in the cherries and walnuts; set aside. Lightly grease a brownie pan and place the chunks of cookie dough sporadically around the bottom of the pan (there may be a few pieces of cookie dough left, do with them what you must). Pour the brownie mix over the top, evenly coating the cookie dough. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes or until you can stick a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean. Enjoy!
    Serves: 10
    Cooking Time: 45 Minutes

    My hubby and I make "easy lazy cheesecakes" this way:
    we spread a little schmear of chèvre (with or without a little vanilla extract and/or honey mixed in) on a TJ's graham cracker (gotta love it -- no HFCS, no trans-fats!), and top with a little schmear of TJ's lemon curd, and, if we're gettin' all fancy, topped with a slice of whatever fruit we bought at the farmers' market.

    I completely forgot about my addiction to the Fat Free Crumpets - Cinnamon Raisin. They are delicious with the Honey Apple Butter.

    One more thing - TJ's has a new product - Dark Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Wafer Cookies. They are amazing! At work we call them "little bit 'o' heaven".

    Two new TJ "likes":
    Multigrain croissants: they're delicious and make the apartment smell like a bakery when they're in the oven. Also, unlike the other frozen croissants (mini, and pain au choc), you don't have to remember to proof them overnight; ten minutes for a partial thaw while the oven is heating, and they're good to go.
    Blueberry scones: these don't have to proof overnight, either! I like to "doll 'em up" by doing an egg wash, pressing some lemon zest on top, and then finishing with a sprinkle of turbinado sugar before popping them in the oven. We like to spread a little lemon curd on them.

    Wow! The dark chocolate covered peanut butter wafer cookies are excellent! Thanks for that heads up. They were really pushing them... had them in the cookie section, the end of an aisle, and at the register. I got the blueberry covered chevre cheese, frozen roasted corn, fresh figs, dark coffee beans, and so much more!
    Count your blessings!
