I’m the kind of person who pounces on baked goods as soon as they come out of the oven. Things just seem to taste so good when they’re still warm and the kitchen is still fragrant with the baking aromas.
Naturally, as soon as these cookies came out of the oven, I HAD to try them. And… I was a little bit disappointed. All I could taste was vanilla, and only a bare hint of peanut butter.
Later on, I went back for another one after they had had time to cool. Tasting it again, the vanilla had subsided and the peanut butter had come to the fore. Yey! That was more like it.
The recipe for these cookies is here.
I used crunchy peanut butter, which I would highly recommend. And to get my cookies so round (even I was surprised how well they turned out!) I rolled the dough into balls with my hands and flattened them slightly into discs. They flattened more as they baked.
Try these. They’re easy and they taste great. Just try to resist eating one straight out of the oven.
