Tuesdays With Dorie – Peanut Butter Crisscrosses

by Jessica on September 7, 2010

Peanut butter, yes. But, crisscrosses? Not so much.

Peanut Butter Crisscrosses

I’ve never been able to get a nice crisscross on my PB cookies… ever. I try and I try. I stick the dough in the fridge to firm up. I use room temperature dough. I mix the dough thoroughly and then at times, just until the flour is incorporated. Not sure exactly why they won’t come out for me. But I guess it doesn’t matter, as long as each batch keeps disappearing from the cookie jar. Right? ­čÖé

i think your criss crosses are cute ­čÖé
My version of these is PB and White Chocolate thumprints. Great job this week!

This is one great cookie. My crosses weren’t very good, but no one seemed to mind.

Your crisscrosses are fine. Most of mine I didn’t even bother–well that and because I added chocolate that made it hard to cross.

Hmmm – they turned out just perfect for you. Wish I had a couple of these to snack on right now before going to bed.

Who cares about crisscrosses. I love the black and white plates.

You are absolutely right. It doesn’t matter as long as they are good!! And they still look amazing!

But I have the saaaaame criss cross pattern. I’m thinking it was because I might have under-measured the flour? Or I used the cheapo butter rather than the good stuff?? Either way, still deeeelish!
