TWD Peanut Butter Crisscrosses/ Chocolate Peanut Butter Criscrosses


I have tried many Peanut Butter Cookie recipes over the years. Some have been ok but I have not found one that I would repeat--until now! Dorie worked her magic again and created a wonderful peanut butter cookie. This cookie is soft in the center with crisp edges, loaded with chopped peanuts and rolled in sugar. All combine to make another 5 star cookie!


I got a lot more than 40 cookies from this recipe. I think it is a good idea to share these cookies, it is easy to eat more than you planned! I can't wait to try the chocolate variation.


Edited--I didn't wait long. My sweet 5 year old neighbor came over today and wanted to make cookies. She is a doll with a sweet smile and dimples, I couldn't say no. So Emma helped me make Chocolate Peanut Butter Crisscrosses. I used chunky PB, dutch process cocoa and chopped up a Ghiradelli Semi Sweet baking bar. I made these cookies bigger. They were delicious. This recipe is a winner however you make it.
Jasmine is our host this week, check her blog for the recipe (scroll to the bottom of Jasmine's post for the English recipe, unless you speak French)! This would make the perfect 'after school' or 'lunch box' treat. There are great bakers in our TWD group, see how they liked Peanut Butter Crisscrosses.


Edited--I had to try the chocolate variation

I tried to get a photo in a glass too, but yours is much better! Now I'm wondering why mine were so crisp and not chewy. Guess I'll just have to make them again.

I tried to find a glass to make my photo, but couldn't find one the right size. I love yours. And this did make a lot of cookies didn't it?

Love your photos and I just read your bio - I wanted an Easy Bake Oven, too, and never got one. I think I"m making up for it now!

Tia said...

beautiful presentation in the glass jar :)
My version of these is PB and J thumprints. Great job this week!

Leslie said...

These look so good! I highly recommend bittersweet chocolate chips or the chocolate flavor gets lost.

Jasmine said...

Oh my gosh, if I had a dimpled 5-year old on my doorstep I don't think I could have refused, either! Your cookies look delicious, and you've made me very curious to try the cocoa variation.
