A storm was brewing here in Houston & the schools we shutting down for the next day. We’d just done our grocery shopping so we were fully prepared except 1 thing… there was nothing sweet to eat.
I had been “threatening” to make cookies for days & never quite got around to it. I usually ask my guys what kind of cookies they want but this time I decided to just make Mr. Green’s favorite – peanut butter cookies – you know, since it took me so long to make them in the first place.
I don’t eat sweets much. But when I do have a cookie or two, I like them to hit that sweet spot between crunchy & chewy. I have loads of cookbooks with peanut butter cookie recipes & of course there’s no shortage of them online. Problem is that I don’t like peanut butter cookies so I couldn’t taste these.
Good thing I like to experiment in the kitchen because I was able to come up with this recipe that’s a mashup between the sugar cookies & oatmeal cookies I normally make and a peanut butter cookie recipe from an old school Betty Crocker cookbook I have (©1950).
