In Search of a Soft Peanut Butter Cookie
I like the taste of the traditional peanut butter cookie, and I liked making those cross hatches on top as a kid. Now, as I become Ms DOA Cookiemeister, I want a nice soft cookie. Those dry old cross hatched things...meh.
I have several recipes to try but started with http://www.everydayhomecook.com/2011/08/soft-chewy-peanut-butter-cookies/ this one from the Everyday Home Cook site. It had more moist ingredients, I reasoned, so maybe it would be softest.
Mine don't look quite like hers perhaps because I used a small ice cream scoop, the kind that lets you scoop then launch your cookie out onto the pan or into a small bowl of sugar.
They were really nice and soft as I'd hoped. Mr. DOA really liked them but couldn't quite pronounce them to be "peanut buttery." There's a whole cup of peanut butter in there and I thought they were nicely peanut buttery. (New word?)
I have two more recipes lined up, and welcome any suggestions for a nice soft peanut butter cookie.
