Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate-Peanut Butter Crisscrosses
Until recently, my dessert after eating a jar of salad for lunch, was one mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Everyday. I used a knife or spoon to cut off the tiniest piece and let it dissolve on my tongue. My goal was to make it last at least 15-20 minutes. It was well worth the 80 calories.
So when I read Dorie’s suggestion for adding cocoa and chocolate chunks to her Peanut Butter Crisscrosses, I was all over it. Plain peanut butter cookies never were my favorite.
I liked the sugary, crispy crust and chewy interior but the chocolate chunks were the best part. The not so good part? Rolling each cookie by hand and then into sugar, and then pressing with a fork. But it was all fun—this one time.
