I’ve tested different recipes for peanut butter cookies over the years, and I found using crunchy peanut butter makes the cookies a little too crunchy. So I tried the combination of creamy peanut butter and chopped unsalted roasted peanuts. The result? A soft and chewy cookie with a little bit of crunch that is full of Peanut Butter Flavour!
