I'm not sure why, but I don't often make peanut butter cookies. Sprout will eat anything. I think we've established that fact. And although Munchkin likes peanut butter and cookies, he won't even try one. Slight surprise there.
I really liked these. It seemed that some bakers had their cookies turn out soft while others turned out crisp. Mine were more on the crisp side. Not biscotti hard, just nice and crisp. I didn't add quite as many chopped peanuts as the recipe called for. It was nice finding the occasional chunk without them being overwhelming.
D even liked them, saying that he doesn't usually like peanut butter cookies but that these were good. Leave it to Dorie -- she's become my baking go-to girl! I must have made mine (much) smaller that Dorie does though, because while the recipe says it will yield 40 cookies, I got 72!
