Ultimate Peanut Butter Cookies
The soft and melty peanut butter and butterscotch chip filling makes for a delicious twist on a classic dessert. First you make the filling into little balls and refrigerate them until they’re hard. Then you make the cookie dough- which is a great peanut butter cookie recipe all on its own. But it the titular “ultimate” doesn’t happen until you wrap the peanut butter cookie dough around the filling and rolled it in sugar. And yes- it is as good as it sounds!
But, in my house, baking with peanut butter means a entering a battle of wills with my dog.
He thinks it’s only fair that peanut buttery goodness be distributed evenly amongst the household. And I disagree. Simply opening the jar emits an inaudible siren song that instantly summons him to the kitchen. Where he then sits by my feet and looks up at me with big brown eyes that say, “I’m a good boy- don’t you love me enough to share?” So, suffice it to say, baking with peanut butter brings out the worst behavior from my naughty beggar boy. That said, this recipes is totally worth the “struggle!”
And, hey, at least my little beggar has good taste!
One quick tip before you go: Try popping your day-old cookies in the microwave for 10 seconds. This will make the cookie, and the filling, soft and melty; recreating the taste of oven-fresh cookies for days!Print
