Meh. Peanut butter cookies. The only peanut butter-chocolate combo I like is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
These are über-persnickety cookies, too. The dough is soft an pillowy, not necessarily a bad thing until you try rolling it out, painting chocolate all over it, and then rolling it into a cylinder. I’ve worked with more difficult doughs, but the payoff needs to merit the headache. I don’t think it does. And then, there’s the bake time. There’s a very thin margin of error here for over baking. I checked the cookies at 10 minutes and they still looked a little wet. At 11 minutes, they were done, but after they had cooled, I thought they were a little dry and chalky.
