I was really in the mood to bake, but I didn’t have the urge to make some fancy-pants, seven-step dessert. I just wanted something basic and simple, but different than the regular shortbread or chocolate chip cookies I would usually make when I have an urge like this. I consulted one of my millions of cookbooks, and stumbled upon this gem in one of Anna Olsen’s books. I consider these the “new” peanut butter cookie. They stand up to any peanut butter cookie out there, and are certainly a refreshing change. I added some mini chocolate chips for fun because really, I’m a choco-holic and think chocolate chips go great with all cookies.
