Convinced

I am convinced that White Chocolate Wonderful makes the best peanut butter cookies.

Nick and I are now convinced that we actually like peanut butter cookies.

I don’t know why, but I never really enjoyed peanut butter cookies. If I had a choice between any other cookie and a peanut butter one…I would always pick the other option.

Most peanut butter cookies I’ve tried in the past were usually:

– Not very flavorful

– Dry

– A combination of both

And why would I pick that over a perfectly crispy chocolate chip cookie or chewy molasses?

But these cookies have convinced us otherwise.

This recipe has convinced me that you don’t need butter or flour to make a good cookie.

I mean, the recipe looked easy enough to convince me to even make them in the first place! I had never made peanut butter cookies before yesterday. Ever.

And it has convinced me to keep making these cookies.

They are extremely easy, take minutes to make, and make your house smell like a Reese Cup.

Even Maggie wanted in on these cookies! I had a hard time taking pictures without her nose sneaking into the frame.

It’s Friday. It’s been a long week. I bet you’d love a peanut butter cookie.

Make these.

Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies.

The only changes I made – I left out the peanuts and added in 1/4-1/2 cup dark chocolate chips and 1/4 tsp salt (plus I used White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter).

If these won’t start your weekend off on the right foot…I’m not sure what will.

  1. I am eating some WCW right now! But guess what? I’ve never made cookies with it!

  2. I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with peanut butter cookies as well. Like you, I’d always pick the other choice. But just by the looks of these I can so tell they’re worth making :-)

  3. I love peanut butter cookies. Those cookies look delicious. I am definitely going to have to try that recipe. :)

  4. Those look DELICIOUS. And yes, that PB is amazing.

  5. I’ve never seen that kind of peanut butter before. Looks really good! Where do you buy it?

  6. This recipe will make my jar of WCW disappear faster than it already does. I”ll have to give these a try.

  7. Clearly this is yet another sign that I finally need to purchase some White Chocolate Wonderful…

  8. I can think of very few more awesome combos than white chocolate peanut butter cookies with dark chocolate chunks! super yum!

  9. I often shy away from pb cookies, too. Which is strange, given my love of peanut butter. I think it’s because I like chewy chocolate chip varities more…

    And I agree with you about the white chocolate wonderful- my usual tastes are for the TJ’s pb which is strictly peanuts. But when baking, the other stuff is much appreciated!

  10. I bought some of that white chocolate peanut butter on your recommendation. I’ve been using it in my oats all week so I think I will take you up on your recipe recommendation as well! The husband loves peanut butter but he does not like peanut butter flavored things. We’ll see if these can change his mind. ;-)

  11. You definitely have piqued my interest! White chocolate peanut butter cookies? Sounds right up my alley. :)

  12. Oh man, I ADORE peanut butter cookies so I cannot wait to try this recipe. I am drooling, these look wonderful. White Chocolate Wonderful. ;)

  13. You have to be right! I can’t imagine how good a chocolate chip cookie would be with White Chocolate Wonderful in the batter. :)

  14. i hope you sent one in the mail to me :) no? oh… might need to make a batch if it’s still raining tomorrow!

  15. Great idea to use flavored PB in the cookies! They look so soft and perfect.
