If you have followed this blog for any length of time then you know that peanut butter is my favorite food in the whole wide world! So it goes without saying that peanut butter would be featured prominetly in my first annual cookie countdown. These peanuty peanut butter cookies were born from a very special request from a client. Back when I was just an in home baker a customer asked to have bits of peanut added to his peanut butter cookie order.. I was at first taken aback but after careful consideration it made a lot of sense. What better way to improve on the classic peanut butter cookie then to add peanuts? The addition was perfect! I could go on forever about how amazing these cookies are but I’ll just leave you with the recipe and let you find out for yourself. Happy Baking 🙂
