Everyone in our house LOVES peanut butter. There’s even an unspoken game to be the one who gets to open the new jar of peanut butter. The fresh aroma is one of the simple joys in our home. While my husband can eat nearly any peanut butter cookie, I had not been able to refine a recipe to my standards, until now. Just like any cookie or baked good, I try hard to appeal to those of different tastes into one cookie.
This cookie is a peanut butter explosion of flavor with crisp edges and a soft center. Roasted peanuts are added to the batter to give some crunch, texture and adding to the wonderful peanut aroma. For those that know me, that just wasn't enough. Peanut butter chips and candies not only add a bit of flavor, but more importantly add a touch of sweetness that helps round out the flavor profile.
Even better is that you can put this cookie in the microwave for a few seconds, you get a soft, warm, and crumbly treat that will force you to close your eyes can drift off into bliss.
For those who love peanut butter, there is always an occasion for this cookie whether it be a summer bbq, birthday party, wedding, rainy day, or just because.
