This weeks pick, Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies, was by Stephanie of Ice Cream BeforeDinner, check out her blog, she made several versions of this recipe. I love peanut butter cookies, especially chewy ones, these were chewy but a bit flat for me. Flat in flavor and physical stature, LOL. What I look for in a peanut butter cookie is a strong peanut butter taste, these were mild; I also like a thicker cookie, mine spread and cracked more than I expected, the out of focus picture showes how thin mine turned out.
So I made my favorite PB cookie, Thick, Moist & Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies, adapted from The Dessert Bible by Christopher Kimball. This recipe uses roasted salted peanuts that you process with the flour in a food processor, and a cup of peanut butter.
These are thick and chewy with a pronounced peanut flavor; a definate thumbs up from DH. I always enjoy trying out new recipes, even if I have a tried and true, never fail recipe that I have used for years; you just never know when you will find an even better recipe.
