M&M peanut butter cookies

Peanut butter is my kryptonite. I usually ban myself from buying peanut butter because I eat it straight from the jar with a spoon – disgusting I know. The only time I allow myself to buy peanut butter is when I need it for my baking. This recipe is a slight adaptation from my peanut butter cookie recipe. I added M&M peanut for an extra “umph”!


Making peanut butter cookies are slightly trickier than the other cookies. The cookie dough tends to be drier and harder to roll. I prefer to wait for the cookie dough to soften till room temperature before rolling it out. Remember not to over bake the cookies or it would turn out too dry. So take the cookies out from the oven when they are slightly soft and let it cool. The cookies will harden when cooling.
