I normally pair peanut butter with semisweet or milk chocolate – and fine combinations those are too. This is a different twist with white chocolate instead. Both these flavors I’m just so-so about but figured I would go for it since I share what I bake anyway and I can’t always bake for what only I love. Well, I could but let’s try to be a little less selfish with this recipe.
It’s actually a pretty good peanut butter cookie. I made them on the small side and baked them from frozen dough. They didn’t spread much either which was a point in their favor. Although semisweet or milk chocolate pairs well with peanut butter and complements it, I thought the white chocolate chips enhanced the peanut butter flavor. It didn’t compete with the peanut butter so much as make a nice backdrop for it. So if you want a quick, easy peanut butter cookie recipe, kick the tires on this one and let me know what you think.
