CAUTION: ANOTHER UNHEALTHY RECIPE!
…but it’s totally worth it. These cookies are amazing. Seriously, if you are looking for the perfect peanut butter and chocolate combination, look no further! (These are even better than Reese’s Peanut butter eggs on sale after Easter!) I made a batch of these and gave them away to everyone that came to visit. I then immediately made another batch as soon as they were gone. They are that good. There are two secret weapons that make these cookies chewy, gooey, and melt-in-your mouth all at the same time. The original recipe is from the WinsomeGirl, I didn’t change very much, because they were already pretty much perfect.
Cold, Cubed, Unsalted butter. Using cold butter instead of the usual room temperature variety makes cookies tends to create a fluffier, plumper cookie. They will hold their shape better and not spread out on the baking sheet. By being thicker these cookies taste even chewier and feel softer longer.
Cornstarch. I don’t know why it took me so long to discover this, but using cornstarch in peanut butter cookies (And other recipes?) makes them melt in your mouth and taste spectacular. The cornstarch gives the cookie a pillowy texture and fluffs it right up. YUM.
Maybe I will try incorporating these secret weapons in other recipes. But I think I might just have to make another batch of these…they are that. good. So go make them right now.
Orrr if you don’t feel like making cookies, I just realized I have wayy too many peanut butter recipes on here…I might be addicted.
