The peanut butter cookie is a classic — but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with one recipe. That rich and creamy flavour works well in a variety of versions, playing off the nuttiness and chewiness of this traditional cookie. Whether you’re a peanut butter cookie purist or you like a little chocolate in the mix, there’s a cookie for you.
Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
The debate between crunchy or smooth peanut butter has no place here. Anna Olson’s cookies call for either, so use whatever is in the cupboard to make this classic treat.
Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Drizzle
A drizzle of chocolate elevates these peanut butter cookies that use mashed bananas to keep them moist. This cookie is all the better with that secret ingredient, as peanut butter and banana is one of those naturally tasty combinations.
What’s better than a peanut butter cookie? One with the warming spices used to make gingerbread. With cinnamon, ginger and allspice in the mix, this is a thin, chewy cookie with a lot of flavour.
Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies
With the classic combo of chocolate and peanut butter, combined with the nostalgia factor of a soft whoopie pie, this cookie is a winner. Although the texture is more cupcake than cookie, everyone will be enjoying them too much to worry about word choice.
Ultimate Peanut Butter Cookie
If you’re looking for that classic, chewy peanut butter cookie, Anna Olson has the recipe for you. Calling it the “ultimate” cookie is a big statement, but she has the baking know-how to back it up.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Globs
These Chocolate Peanut Butter Globs are from Barefoot Contessa’s Ina Garten, so they are guaranteed to be full of flavour. They are also full of crunch, as they have both walnuts and pecans in the recipe.
Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
Get twice the peanut butter with these sandwich cookies from Anna Olson. Soft and chewy cookies come together with a layer of peanut butter icing — flavoured with a hint of vanilla and cinnamon — in between.
