here, and had serious doubts about how good they could possibly be. With the base cookie only consisting of peanut butter, sugar and an egg, it doesn't make sense, but it works and I may never go back to the traditional cookie.
|Sort of forgot a before picture, but here's the aftermath.|
To make things even better, the cookies are dipped in melted chocolate, and then in chopped peanuts. AMAZING! The cookies literally fall apart in your mouth while the chocolate and crunch of the peanuts just add to the experience.
Here's the basic recipe:
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
Chill dough for half an hour.
Bake at 325 degrees for 18-20 minutes.
|These cookies are a little brittle, but that gives you a chance to sample your work. :)|
I didn't have baking chocolate, so I melted 1/3 of a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips in a double broiler on the stove (a glass bowl over a bowling pot of water). I also didn't have plain peanuts, but I had honey-roasted peanuts. I chopped them up and they worked perfectly.
I hope the rest of you are enjoying the Fall weather and changing leaves. Have a great week!
