These are the absolute best peanut butter cookies you will ever have. They have it all – a crisp exterior while maintaining a chewy peanuttiness. Charlie has absolutely no self-control when it comes to these cookies. He usually starts out with four or five cookies and a big glass of milk only to go back for more. It is a good thing he works out a lot!
One of the things I like about these cookies, other than the amazing flavor, is that they come together very quickly. Since they are easy to throw together, we have taken these cookies many places and I am always asked for the recipe. The key to these cookies is I always use natural peanut butter and real butter. No Peter Pan or margarine for me! The natural goodness of real peanut butter with the combination of brown sugar and white sugar gives them the perfect texture. White sugar gives you crispness and brown sugar gives you chew.
Charlie is bringing some of these to Andrew this week along with a requested batch granola. The peanut butter cookies were Charlie’s idea – imagine that.
I hope you give them a try. Let me know how you like them!
