Letting Life Lead
It is quite possible that my husband might sell me for a bag of peanut butter cookies one day. I’m a Chocolate Chip Cookie or Chocolate Mint Cookie lady myself, but the man is just ga-ga over peanut butter. I have tried an obscene amount of recipes for peanut butter cookies and there were always problems: too dry, too soft, no peanut butter flavor, too flaky, too weird. I don’t know how you can make a peanut butter cookie taste weird, but that recipe does exist.
This is the peanut butter cookie recipe from Woodland Bakery (get the recipe from there). I know I am beginning to sound like a fan girl, and I swear I am not stalking the woman! These cookies are good enough that it almost made a cookie convert out of me. I am still a chocolate chip cookie girl all the way, but these lovelies are a solid number three. Most definitely they are number one on the husband’s list. I do believe he said, “Mmmph.”
I am glad I made only half a batch because I am running out of pants that fit. I put chocolate chips in half the cookies, and the household was divided on which was the best: purist peanut peanut butter or chocolate chip peanut butter.
Next time I plan I making these with half bread flour just to see how it would be with just a little more chew.
What type of cookie would you sell a family member for?
