This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is the first one we’re baking from Dorie’s new book – Dorie’s Cookies! Yes, that’s right – every 2 weeks, the Tuesdays with Dorie bakers will bake up a recipe from this gorgeous new book (so that’s four Dorie posts a month now, along with those from Baking Chez Moi!). Our first recipe is Peanut Butter Change Ups and because I only found out the recipe choices a couple of days ago, I did exactly that – changed things up. Because it wouldn’t be a Dorie post without me somehow messing with the recipe, right? 😉 First of all, of COURSE, I minified this by making only a half-batch. Secondly, I didn’t have any peanut butter on hand so I used 1/2 cashew butter, 1/2 almond butter and cashews instead of peanuts. Well, “change up” IS in the name, right?
These taste like peanut butter criss cross cookies but instead of making rounds and pressing them down with a fork, you scoop them out so they are domes. I love my cookie scoops – I can’t believe it took me so long to buy these – they make my life so much easier (and cleaner!).
I’m not normally one for nutty cookies but I’m really enjoying these. They are good dunked in coffee and excellent served with ice cream. I would make them smaller next time though as I used a scoop that is bigger than the 1.5 tablespoon scoop Dorie calls for and had a bit of trouble figuring out if they were cooked (they are very soft still when you take them out of the oven) – I probably baked them a few minutes too long but no matter, they taste amazing!
