This is an experience that has been all week in the making. It all started with trying to get Noah to taste some peanut butter. He didn't. Corey ate some peanut butter off a spoon and commented that it was really good peanut butter. I said I would like to have some peanut butter cookies...the recipe that Bethany makes. Corey wanted to make some but I wouldn't let him steal that from me (I LOVE to bake), but it turned out that we no longer had the recipe card for those cookies...perhaps lost in the Christmas shuffle?
So, I called Bethany to get the recipe. Well, she can't find it either and has to call her sister to get it, which it turned out, they had just made the same cookies this week too! Apparently a peanut butter craving has been going around.
After I read the recipe I realized we didn't have enough butter OR peanut butter to make the cookies and I forgot to pick it up when I was out and about this week.
Yesterday I went by the store to pick up what we needed, so FINALLY this morning I was able to make the peanut butter cookies. And they were even better than I remember!
This has got to be the best recipe for peanut butter cookies I have EVER tasted! I never even liked peanut butter cookies at all until I tried this recipe. They are chewy and gooey, the way cookies were meant to be (sorry Chris F who like crispy cookies, what is up with that?!). You don't have to press them with a fork, it makes such a fluffy batter, even more fluffy than regular chocolate chip cookies. You just lightly roll them into small lumps and place them on the cookie sheet. Ah! Here are some pictures of our's from today. I am going to make a request that Bethany be the awesome friend she is and post the recipe since I have already written a ridiculously long post just fawning over them! She can link back here with her recipe for a "review." :)
Warning: You MUST go buy milk before you bake these cookies! Mmmmmm......
