I mentioned in an earlier post, that peanuts are actually legumes, not nuts like most people think. So, I thought I would include a post with my favorite "legume" cookie. I don't usually like peanut butter cookies, but this recipe is so good. Of course, the day I make them I didn't use quite enough flour so they turned out flatter than normal. I also overcooked them a minute or two, but I decided to use the picture anyway. They still taste fantastic, even will my mishaps. It is kind of like when your kids does something really cute, and then when you want them to show off, they won't do it.
Once you try these cookies, you will never go back to any other peanut butter cookie recipe. And, if you aren't a fan of peanut butter cookies, like I used to be, this recipe will change your mind. The hint of almond in them is the reason why they are so good.
What did the peanut say when he was insulted by another peanut?
