Do we really need another peanut butter cookie recipe? Absolutely! When a peanut butter cookie recipe is this good it cries out to be shared. I spent part of my summer with my two sisters in my home town, Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Sister Heather whipped up these melt-in-your-mouth morsels of delight to serve during a Duplicate Bridge Tournament. What makes these cookies more than just another peanut butter cookie is their delicate lightness. If you are a lover of all things peanut butter they are definitely worthy of adding to your collection of cookie recipes.
The secret to good cookie making is to always cream your butter and sugar really well. At least five or preferably ten minutes. Then beat in the eggs thoroughly one at a time. Stir in the flour briefly – just until it is combined with the flour. In this recipe it is ESSENTIAL to refrigerator the dough for at least one hour.
These cookies are very rich. Roll the dough into small one inch balls and bake on a parchment lined sheet. Then if you really want to gild the lily, and make your bridge partner happy, melt some chocolate with heavy cream. Let the chocolate cool and sandwich the cookies with the ganache. Such indulgence!
The recipe makes 50 to 60 cookies. I set up an assembly line. I prefer to bake my cookies one sheet at a time. I have one batch of cookies in the oven. One batch cooling. And a third batch waiting to be baked. To balance the sweetness of the cookies I listen to Tom Watts growl his way through his newest album BAD AS ME.
