I like peanut butter cookies, but I hardly ever add them to a cookie tray as the aroma (like mint) tends to attach itself to all the other cookies and, before you know it, you have a peanut butter extravaganza.
So, for me, these cookies are a stand-alone favorite, and Betty Crocker seems to do it best. These cookies have a mildly crunchy texture and wonderful peanutty flavor. I was tempted to make a few changes, like chunky peanut butter, mini-chocolate chips, or those highly-addictive peanut butter m&m’s, but simple old-fashioned goodness won out. I followed the recipe exactly, but instead of dipping my fork into sugar before I made the criss-cross pattern, I rolled the whole cookie in granulated sugar and then made the pattern.
Cold milk + two (or more) of these cookies = happy day.
Here’s to another happy day.
