Cat Cora’s Peanutter Cookies

Totally my bad. Poor Cat Cora. She was my April Celebrity Chef of the Month. Yes…I said APRIL. Here it is…halfway through May and I haven’t talked about ANY of her recipes! Due to a much needed blogging “hiatus”, my poor blogs got a little left in the flour dust. I suppose there is no better time than now to get movin’, bakin’ and shakin’. Maybe not so much on the shakin’ part…but you get the idea.

So, for the rest of the month of May, I’ll continue sharing recipes from Ms. Cora…starting with her Peanutter Cookies, which can be found in her cookbook, Cat Cora’s Classics with a Twist. Because I’m still rather fresh with the whole food blogging thing and am unsure of copyrights with cookbooks, I’m just going to link you to the recipe HERE. By the way, if someone could enlighten me on the subject, I will {heart} you forever…drop me an email please.

As you can see from the simplicity of the ingredients above, this is a great recipe to do with your children…as long as you can keep them from eating all of the chocolate chips and peanuts ahead of time. Since my son wanted to bring a snack for his baseball team, the timing worked out perfectly for us to bake and take these cookies.

The results?

  • We realized, after the first batch, the dough doesn’t spread. Matter of fact, it stayed in the exact same shape as the cookie scoop (as you can see from the “ball” shaped cookies towards the back of the plate.) For the next few pans, we flattened the dough before baking. I’m not sure if it was just the recipe or possibly due to the fact that we used natural peanut butter.
  • The recipe calls to scoop the dough by the teaspoon full. WAY too small – we used a tablespoon scoop and those still seemed small. Super size me please.
  • As far as flavor, these cookies were tasty! The salt level was perfect against the plentiful chocolate. We also loved the crunchy texture of the added peanuts. Because I am a total foodie texture freak, I was a bit disappointed with the consistency of the actual cookie part. When I make peanut butter cookies, there is a certain level of “chewiness” that must be there…these didn’t have it.
  • Did the baseball team love them? YES! Were there any complaints? NO! Would I make them again…I’m sad to say I probably won’t. Though, because I enjoyed the added nuts *snicker*,  I will start adding them to my regular cookie recipe.
