With Christmas and a number of cookie exchanges approaching this week, I figured I'd go ahead and whip up a batch of peanut butter cookies. I thought about making a traditional peanut butter cookie, but I really don't know how to leave a good thing alone and decided it needed to be one-upped — after all, everything tastes better when Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are involved, right?
The results were everything a peanut-butter-and-chocolate-dessert-lover could ask for and then some. My only piece of advice? For a more robust flavor, skip the all-natural, organic peanut butter in favor of something high in fat, sugar, and flavor, like Skippy or Jif. Keep reading to see the peanut butter cookie recipe.
