Ooops. I just realized that I’m sharing yet ANOTHER peanut butter recipe… I’m so sorry about that! I know, it really wasn’t that long ago that I promised to try and stay away from the stuff for a while, and yet here I am, sharing a recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies.

I get the feeling that you will forgive me this little gaucherie, though. In fact, I’d even go as far as to say you’ll be glad I did.

You know what’s funny? Back when I was a kid, I didn’t care for Peanut Butter Cookies. AT ALL. Mind you, the reality is that, back then, I had no idea what a true, honestly good peanut butter cookie really was. All I’d ever eat were those commercial pre-packaged, dry and crumbly excuses for a cookie. You know, the type of cookie that, unless one had a great big glass of milk to dunk them in, pretty much felt like you were munching on a mouthful of coarse sand.

And since I was never one to enjoy drinking milk, well… (true fact. You’ll only VERY rarely catch me drinking milk. I hate the stuff)

Dangerously chewy and peanut-buttery, these Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies are what serious peanut butter lovers' dreams are made of!

But these guys… OMG! They are a completely different animal. Trust me, you will not be requiring a glass of milk when feasting on these puppies. Well, maybe just to sort of cleanse your palate, if you’re a fan of the practice, but definitely NOT to help wash them down.

These cookies, they’re melt-in-your-mouth soft, chewy and moist in their center, with a slightly firmer, crispier edge, just the way I like ’em. And the fact that they’re rolled in sugar before hitting the oven gives them that extra little crunch, you know, sending your mouth in total sensory nirvana.
