“Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.”
Yes. Well. Pay no attention to the chocolate chunks that look suspiciously like M&Ms.
What can I say? I was short a few chips, so . . . .
Now, I love peanut butter cookies, but I refuse to use adulterated peanut butter for anything. Always have, always will. So irregardless of what the recipe said, I used super chunky peanut butter au naturel, courtesy of Trader Joe’s. It’s a staple in the pantry.
Would you be able to tell the difference? Nope. These cookies are moist and tender and taste of oatmeal and peanut butter and a hint of spice.
I had just finished making the dough (yesterday, Sunday) and had the oven heating and the cookie sheets ready, when I happened to re-read the recipe. Chill, it said. Rats, I said. So, off went the oven. I stuck the mixing bowl in the fridge and decided to bake them this morning (Monday). It’s rather fun that way, because the dough is already prepared, so you only have to shape and bake. And the house smelled great during the process.
Take a look at the efforts of the other TWD bakers. It’s always interesting to see their results and read their comments.
