A few weeks ago, I was craving peanut butter cookies, and tried a new cookie recipe. Unfortunately it was a flop, yielding cookies that were totally flat and crumbly. The recipe was from a good source, so I am going to assume it was a baker error.
This time I decided to try a much simpler recipe for Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies, courtesy of Peanut Butter Boy. Because anyone named Peanut Butter Boy should know best! He’s the same guy who came up with the peanut butter and peach sandwich.
I am happy to say that these cookies came out better. The oats and crunchy peanut butter give the cookies some real texture. They are still a little dry, but that could be because I used natural peanut butter or because my oven runs hot. They have a pretty intense peanut flavor and are almost more nutty than sweet! Trust me, these will be enjoyed, but I just may need to keep looking for the perfect peanut butter cookie.
