Cocoa Peanut Butter Crisscross Cookies
Cocoa Peanut Butter Crisscross Cookies
Have you had that week where you are late for everything...all week long? Well, I'm having that. I think the Labor Day holiday threw me off and I'm celebrating Wednesdays with Dorie today.

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Jasmine of Jasmine Cuisine selected Peanut Butter Crisscrosses on page 78 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

I used Dorie's "playing around" section and made Cocoa Peanut Butter Crisscross cookies. I made 1/2 the recipe, skipped the chopped peanuts, used creamy Skippy PB, and added 1/4 c Dutched cocoa powder and 1/4 c mini chocolate chips. I made mine a little smaller and baked them for 11 minutes instead of 13 minutes for the larger cookies.

Hmmmm - I don't mind if you're late if you're dishing up treats like this one. Love the addition of cocoa here so I guess I need to steal this idea from you :)

These look great!! I love how pronounced your criss crosses are! mine spread a bit too much for the criss crosses to be really defined. oh well. guess i'll have to make them again ;)

Could I try one with my coffee, please? They look really yummy. I have to make a note in the copy of my Dorie book.

Does anything test better than chocolate and peanut butter together? I think not. Better late than never is what I always say, especially when it comes to cookies.

Ah yes, Wednesdays with Dorie...I myself have been celebrating Wednesdays (and Thursdays) with Dorie lately...Tuesdays are just coming way too soon! Your cookies look yum. I added chocolate chips to mine, but I'm sort of wishing I'd added the cocoa too. Next time!
