TWD - Peanut Butter Change-Ups
There is a new Tuesday with Dorie group baking from Dorie's Cookies, her latest book. I only found out about this group by accident, so I am posting today instead of on Tuesday. Luckily, the first month's recipes are on the Web, as the book was only released at the end of October. It is quite appalling how much more we have to pay for books in Australia - this book costs $20 on Amazon, but the cheapest Australian source was nearly $50. I have paid $41 Australian dollars to get this book from Amazon after postage, whereas US postage from Amazon is free. I do not understand it, but if we want certain books here, we have to just suck it up.
I chose to make the Peanut Butter Change-Ups from the two choices. The recipe is online here.
These cookies were delish. I left out the extra peanuts because I didn't have any, and I left the sugar off the top because I didn't think that it needed it. The cookies are soft and cake-like, but are still very much cookies. I only made a half recipe because I didn't ant the 54 cookies that Dorie stated were in the full batch, but I only got 22 cookies out of the batch. That's fine with me - I ate two already and don't need the temptation.
