Let’s talk peanut butter. You really can’t have a celebration of cookies without the humble peanut butter cookie. Everyone has their favorite way of making it. Some go flourless, some top theirs with a chocolate kiss, others might make it chunky with chopped nuts or sandwich it with more peanut butter for extra peanut flavor.
Me? I like prefer them soft and a lot of peanut butter flavor but today we are going in another direction for the peanut butter cookies.
You see, I had this jar of Mighty Maple from Peanut Butter & Co. sitting in my pantry and I finally got around to opening it up one hungry and peanut butter crazed need one afternoon. You guys, seriously, you need this peanut butter in your life. There are flavored peanut butters out there and then there is this. The peanut butter is swirled with pure maple syrup and I don’t know if it was my jar or if it’s what happens when maple syrup meets peanut butter but there were little crunchy granules and it was awesome. It took every bit of effort to put that jar away, mostly because I knew cookies had to be made with this peanut butter.
My mind started working instantly and a maple syrup cookie came to mind with a thick spread of mighty maple in the center. There’s no need to doctor it up, no need to make a frosting, the peanut butter is that good.
