Peanut Butter Change-Ups
This week I tried out a second recipe from Dorie Greenspan's new book Dorie's Cookies. Peanut Butter Change-Ups are a peanut butter cookie baked as a mound rather than squished down with a fork as is usual.
The dough is very easy to mix up. The addition of nutmeg is unusual, but I couldn't taste it in the baked cookies.
I set the oven temperature slightly lower than what the recipe states, and watched the cookies closely. Despite this caution the bottoms were too brown when I took the cookies out of the oven. Peanut butter cookies have a lot of fat and I often have this over browning problem, even with using light coloured pans lined with parchment paper and baking in the top part of the oven.
I used my grater to take off the brown bottoms. The cookies looked and tasted fine and no one was the wiser.
