Peanut Butter Cookies {Milk Bar Monday 11/5}

We are back!

I know it’s be a little while since I’ve posted …school tends to get in the way of blogging… but when I received an email from Audra asking us if we were ready to bring Christina Tosi back into our lives, I couldn’t resist.

As I’m sure you know by now, the Momofuku Milk Bar is one of my all time favorite cookbooks and the group we have created around it is totally awesome!

So I’m happy to say that we are back at it, and as a result you will have more wonderful Milk Bar recipes to taunt your tastebuds.

Jacqueline eased us back in with her recipe choice, Tosi’s take on a delicious Peanut Butter Cookie.

As it goes, Tosi couldn’t leave this as just any old cookie… So this peanut butter cookie is flaked with pulverized peanut brittle.

I was a little nervous about the brittle, but it is much easier than it seems so please DO NOT pass up these cookies because of the brittle! You can do it!

Here’s a little step by step of what my brittle making process looked like…

And my cookie dough was just beauteous…

My final cookie product was delicious, but slightly over baked and ugly. My bad. 

The other girls said they had great success with their cookies, so I am bound & determined to try this one again.

They are also delicious and completely addicting so I’m okay with having another batch around the house.

Ready to give these babies a try on your own? Check out the recipe over at Jacqueline’s site — The Dusty Baker.

Don’t forget to give some love to the other girls participating this week!

  1. I feel like mine were pretty ugly too but they tasted pretty good!

  2. Glad to see you are back, and I love Milkbar Mondays! These cookies sound amazing, what a great idea with the peanut brittle.

  3. I’m so glad we’re doing MBM again! I really think that bread flour is the secret key to all these cookies! Made such a big difference to me! I love your brittle photos- your caramel looks perfectly gooey!

  4. Wow, Peanut Brittle in PB cookies! I love it!!!

  5. I’m totally obsessed with Momofuku. The pb are some of my favorites. I find that they definitely don’t require much time in the oven and I typically reduce the oven temperature for all of their cookies.

  6. Lovely to see your smiling face. I love the double hit of peanutty goodness. Well done!

  7. I wasn’t psyched by the look of mine either but dang were they tasty! Definitely a good recipe to have on hand. Going to try with a tougher flour next time. Let’s slave to make another batch and compare notes ;)

  8. oh wow those look amazing. the brittle… ah my favorite :)
