Peanut Butter Crunch

Shane Chartrand, Vons Steak House & Oyster Bar

Shane-Vons“What does a cookie mean to me? Happiness. Pure bliss.

“If I had to choose, it would be a simple peanut butter cookie with chunks of peanut. This is a stupid simple recipe we used to make at my mom and dad’s.”

  • 1 c unsalted butter
  • 1½ c crunchy peanut butter
  • 1½ c brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 c flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1½ t baking soda
  • ½ t fleur de sel
  • ½ c cinnamon toast crunch cereal

Cream together butter, peanut butter, and sugar. Mix in the eggs. In a separate bowl, sift flour, fleur de sel, baking soda, and baking powder. Blend in with the wet ingredients and then fold cereal into the mixture.

Make small balls about ¾-inch wide. Place on a baking sheet. Don’t forget to do the classic push down with a fork, in two directions making a crisscross design. Bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes, until cooked, but still soft in the centre.
