peanut butter cookies

peanut butter cookies

I happened on these totally by accident. The ever-readable Jo of Jo’s Kitchen put out a plaintive Twitter plea for a quick post-work cookie recipe. I was sure Nigella would have the answer, and sure enough, she did. I suggested them, alas peanut butter is not her thing. Bloody is mine though, Reese’s Pieces and Peanut Butter Cups send me giddy with delight – it’s the clash of salt and sweet that makes it.

It’s riotously simple – peanut butter, egg, chocolate, sugar – but the texture is utterly amazing, just like a real cookie. Crisp on the outside, crumbly inside, with the smooth salt-sweet flavour that coats the mouth. I’m definitely doing them again, possibly this week to lift the spirits in the office. THough this time I’d use quite a sweet milk chocolate, perhaps CDM, and make them smaller, and bake them a minute or two less. Gorgeous!

    Thanks for the blog mention and the help that you always offer whenever I have a cookery question or recipe request. The cookies look lovely – its a shame I don’t like peanut butter. :-)


    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog
    blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate
