Sweet & Salty Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

From the look of my Facebook post last week, it seems you hated my Marshmallow & Peanut Butter Cookie Cobbler Recipe. As I mentioned, I make full batches of cookie dough, but usually freeze at least half of it for cobblers, “just one cookie” moments & when the girls’ school requests them last minute. I consider Chris a cookie connoisseur. If there is a cookie in sight, he’ll test it. He can’t resist my peanut butter cookies! They’re the perfect combination of sweet & salty, chewy & crunchy.

I adapted an old All Recipes recipe to fit our taste.

The secrets: They key to their texture, as with most cookies, is refrigerating the dough. I know, it’s hard to wait, but so worth it!

I like to roll my doughs in sugars…it gives them an extra little crunch that I just LOVE!

I also like a little crack of sea salt to top by cookies. Have you tried my salted caramel cookie recipe yet?

    These sound heavenly! I haven’t added sea salt to the tops of mine yet, but I don’t think you can go wrong there!
