Kris Kross will make you Crunch..Crunch. I know not everyone will get the reference but the link is amusing.
I have gone back to basics with this post. I made peanut butter cookies. There are no add-ins, no frosting, nothing. It doesn’t even have flour. This lack of four made me highly suspicious and I’m still not committed to this recipe. I got the recipe from allrecipes.com. They had just found me a great sugar cookie recipe so I figured I could trust them. Well like I said these came out interesting.
It started off fine with mixing the peanut butter and the sugar. Look at that crystalline goodness.
Things still seemed on the up and up after all the ingredients were mixed.
Then I rolled little once inch balls of dough and criss-crossed them with a fork. It seemed like I was going to have some GREAT cookies.
Then I met the cookies. “Oh, hey cookies, you’re so flat and crunchy.” What is this work of the devil? (I despise such cookie types. )
I then bake the next batch for a significantly shorter time. These are doughy but still not what I would say is the “best” peanut butter cookie. It just looks sad. I want to be happy when I’m eating a peanut butter cookie. These cookies just remind me of my deflated dreams of getting more homework done tonight. Needless to say I will be trying another peanut butter cookie recipe to redeem this blasphemy.
