“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.
