Peanut Butter Cookies
Oh I love peanut butter. Mix it with chocolate and I'm in heaven. But truth be told, I am very picky about my cookies. I don't like a crisp cookie. I like slightly hard on the outside and super soft on the inside. The closer to the dough texture, the better. Sometimes the dough doesn't make it to the oven. I have issues, I know.
My experience with peanut butter cookies hasn't always been the best, I feel like they always end up too crispy. So I gave this recipe a go and played with the baking times and found myself a perfect mix of crispy and soft. I have no idea what the fork marks on the tops do, but the recipe called for it and it reminds me of my grandma for some reason. So if anyone knows if there is a purpose for the fork marks let me know.
I made some plain peanut butter ones and then of course had to add milk chocolate chips to a few as well. I just feel like peanut butter feels lonely without chocolate. Who am I to keep them apart?
Pre making heads up, this recipe calls for chilling time of at least 3 hours. I hate getting things all mixed, ready to go and then read "chill for 3 hours." I am not patient and I like full disclosure upfront of my wait times, so be prepared. I mixed the dough before I went to bed, then made the cookies the next morning.
