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.
