Peanut Butter Cookies (Genevieve Ko)

Our third cookie this week (we’re baking from the 24 Days of Cookies calendar) was a peanut butter cookie, enhanced in this version with peanut butter chips and whole nuts. It was impossible not to like these, as they were sweet, soft, and very peanutty.

The recipe is by Genevieve Ko (she is the co-author of The Sweet Spot with Pichet Ong, among many other cookbooks). I’ll let Dr. S talk about this recipe as she was the one that made it:

We didn’t have salted natural peanut butter, so we substituted salted butter for the unsalted instead. I found the cookies quite sweet, too sweet for my liking, but they’re very delicious. The peanut butter chips are fun, but maybe reducing the overall sugar might mess up the cookie?

Well, there you have it. A good all-round cookie, but too sweet. I would tend to agree. Unless you have a very sweet tooth, maybe reduce both the sugar and chips a little bit, and now you have a perfect peanut butter cookie.
