Peanut Butter Crisscrosses

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie pick is Peanut Butter Crisscrosses. It's a delightfully soft batter and a rather traditional peanut butter cookie. I made this recipe a year ago and ended up with nearly twice the amount of cookies that Dorie predicted. I have a feeling that her "even tablespoon" is not the same size as mine!

This time, I decided to do the cocoa variation. This substitutes cocoa powder for some of the flour and mini chocolate chips for some of the chopped peanuts. I also made the cookies slightly larger than last time.

The cocoa provided a subtle chocolate flavor, not rich and moist like a brownie, but good in its own way. I like the texture of these cookies; most peanut butter cookies are crumbly but these are just right.


  1. you're right about pb cookies being too crumbly usually. I enjoyed these too!
    My version of these is PB and J thumprints. Great job this week!

  2. I want to try the chocolate variation. This is one great PB cookie.

  3. Love that you put cocoa in yours! That sounds really good. I love PB and chocolate together!

  4. Yum They look great! I will have to try the chocolate version someday!

  5. I did the chocolate too. Liked them better than regular pb cookies. Guess you did too.
