I'll admit it, I'm not really a fan of peanut butter. How un-American of me, I know. I really have to be in the right mood for it and that doesn't happen too often. Once in a blue moon, nothing sounds better than a PB&J, but I choose almost any other cookie over a peanut butter one. This morning, I saw Nicole's recipe from Davis Domestications, knew I would be baby-sitting my niece who likes PB and thought we should try them out.
I think I left the first two trays in the oven a little long, as they were a little crispier than I prefer my cookies. Last couple trays were left in for 7-8 minutes, instead of the suggested 10, and they came out much better. My absolute favorite part was the filling. As much as it looks like plain peanut butter, it isn't! Here it is in all its simplicity:
3 T butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 1/2 T heavy whipping cream
1 cup powdered sugar
Combine all four ingredients until smooth.
It could be used to frost cupcakes, as filling for other cookie sandwiches, or on toast. It is quite yummy, without the sticking of your tongue to the roof of your mouth every bite. I will definitely use the frosting for something else in the future.
