We challenged Tablespoon bloggers to choose a classic recipe from the "Heirloom Recipes and New Twist" section of the brand new Betty Crocker Cookbook and throw down their own spin to share with you.
This chewy Peanut Butter Cookie
has been a favorite Betty Crocker recipe for decades. I know everyone has their own version of a peanut butter cookie, but this recipe has withstood the test of time. They’re easy, freeze well, and are great for gifts or as a lunch box treat.
What I love about these peanut butter cookies is that not only they are great all by themselves but are also a perfect blank canvas for additions such as chocolate, nuts, or candy.
I am so excited about the new Betty Crocker "Big Red" Cookbook. In the cookie section, it has all kinds of tips and tricks to making perfect cookies as well as ideas on how to make each cookie your own by adding your own twist.
In my own tweak to the classic Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookies recipe, I came up with these Peanut Butter and Butterscotch Crunchies
by adding some sweet butterscotch chips and salty crushed pretzels. I took a risk, but I knew as soon as I sampled the dough that I had a winner.
I could hardly wait to pop them in the oven to taste the final product.
Sure enough, perfectly soft and chewy with hidden bits of sweet butterscotch and salty pretzels.
