If you are looking for an after school or great snack cookie give this recipe a try! Everyone will love these peanut butter cookies!
Compared to the traditional peanut butter cookie recipes this one has gotten a bit of a makeover. By taking out the added fat and flour it really helps the peanut butter flavor come through. And that is what makes this cookie so good! Once cooled it has a great texture to go along with the great flavor. With a simple set of ingredients, you probably have everything you need to make this cookie in your pantry already.
Kristina’s Peanut Butter Cookie (original post date 9/9/2012 on www.kristinashouse.com).
I have seen variations of this recipe, for example ones that do not include any flour. In my taste tests, people preferred this one, which included a bit of flour, feeling the texture of the cookie was better. Everyone felt the peanut butter flavor of these cookies came through better over the recipes that included additional fat and flour. Sometimes before I flatten them I will roll them in a bit of sugar just to add a little something extra. They are really good with or without that added sugar though!
