Peanut Butter Cookie FAQs
Can I use different types of peanut butters for this recipe?
You can. Try making these cookies with creamy and crunchy and see which one you like better. The crunchy peanut butter does add in a really nice texture!
Will these cookies be hard or soft?
Since they have minimal ingredients, they’re going to have a bit of a crunch to them once they cool down and harden up. But don’t worry, it’s a good crunch!
If you want them to be a bit softer, you can always pop them in the microwave for a few seconds and that will do the trick.
