I have not had these sweet treats in quite a while. In fact, I am always on the lookout for what I will someday consider the perfect cookie recipe. Today, I decided to make the recipe from Alice Medrich's book, Chewy, Gooey, Crispy, Crunchy Melt in Your Mouth Cookies
I was not disappointed. The cookies were melt in your mouth delicious. Just ask my little
One thing is for sure, these cookies have put a smile on my face. So far this recipe is one of the best cookie recipes for Peanut Butter Cookies but I still would like to find one that will make a chewy cookie not just a melt in your mouth one. Or maybe a chewy, melt in your mouth one. Hmmmm. I may have to try and experiment in the kitchen. Challenge accepted!
Anyway, please give this recipe a try if you waking up craving something sweet and delicious as well. I hope everyone is having a good day!
