Who doesn’t like peanut butter cookies? Did you know that you can actually enhance your all-time-favorite cookie recipe? We’re letting you in a little secret.
We’ve tasted so many types of peanut butter cookies – from store-bought to homemade; each one has its unique flavor, taste, and even twist. We can love different types of peanut butter cookies but there would always be that “one” perfect and classic taste that we’ve all been looking for.
A food blogger’s post recently went viral because of its simple but amazing recipe of our beloved peanut butter cookies. According to her post:
“I’ve waited ten years to share my classic peanut butter cookie recipe with you.
Not because it’s complicated or full of hard-to-find ingredients. I’ve just been tweaking it for years, and finally, I feel like it’s exactly right.”
In making peanut butter cookies, we often face 2 dilemmas according to the blog.
- Those super soft and heavenly fluffy peanut butter cookies sometimes don’t have the real or strong peanut butter flavor. They tend to lack required peanuttiness – so this makes them less of a peanut cookie, right?
- If you try to add enough “peanut butter” to enhance the peanut flavor, it becomes too dense and hard – you get the taste but not the texture.
Luckily, she was able to find an alternative that will hit two birds with one stone!
According to Sommer:
“In order to create the best possible flavor and texture, we had to find a way to enhance the peanut flavor, without adding more peanut butter.”
The best alternative is none other than – peanuts!
Yes – peanuts. Simple, easy to find and will give you the boldest flavor you’ve been looking for without compromising the texture of your peanut cookies!
Just add ground dry roasted peanuts to your cookie dough and that’s it. You’ll get the intense flavor and still maintain that soft and fluffy texture we all love.
Remember that the “perfect” Peanut Butter Cookies should be:
Bold and has that nutty flavor
Soft, chewy that you just can’t get enough
Kissed with just the right amount of salt to balance and enhance the peanutty taste
And lastly, they should keep their “perfect” texture for days for you to enjoy!
