What you don’t know is the rest of the story.
Dun dun dun
I made those cookies for my children’s Bible study teachers. However, my good intentions didn’t pan out the way I had planned. Somehow, the entire batch was consumed by my household before I could give them away. (Keep in mind that there were only two people who ate the cookies last year…)
Needless to say, they were delicious and amazing. So amazing, in fact, that after making the second batch and a few other types of cookies, I had to abandon my 12 Days of Christmas Cookies series. The reason was because I was eating them all, and instead of 12 Days of Christmas cookies, I was gaining 12 Christmas pounds each day.
So, here we are, a whole year later. It’s time to make the cookies again for my children’s teachers, and what have I learned?
Bring me the cookies!
I changed up my recipe a little, just because I was curious as to what they would taste like having just peanut butter inside, rather than a peanut butter cup. Here’s the verdict: These chocolate peanut butter cookies were incredibly delicious. I had to force myself to stop eating them the night I baked them. You can see in the pictures two difference faces of these cookies. The first chocolate peanut butter cookies are the goey cookies that come out of the oven. They remain goey until the next day, when the peanut butter hardens a little.
From one cookie lover to another, can I give you a little nutty advice? Make your own peanut butter. Seriously, it will change the way you view your peanut butter. You will start having peanut butter fantasies. What would pancakes taste like with a little peanut butter? How about your roasted chicken? How about stir fry?
It could be dangerous, but just enough to be intriguing. Here is my favorite peanut butter recipe and guess what the ingredients are? Peanuts! That’s it.
