The Holiday Cookie Project takes an extra delicious turn with Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows. That’s right. We’re winding down Vegan MoFo 2010, chocolate and peanut butter style – and Isa has posted the recipe on the PPK (Post Punk Kitchen) site, here.
Bite into one of these and you’re met with a slightly salty, peanutty inside, enrobed in a gorgeously mellow, subtly sweet, chocolaty outside. Chocolate and peanut butter are two of those made in heaven flavour combinations – and these cookies take full advantage. This renders them fairly irresistible. If you use unsalted natural peanut butter as I did, I highly recommend going for the full cohort of suggested additional salt (you are offered a range). There is just something magical about that sweet and salty contrast.
A single batch of these tasty morsels was next to impossible to satisfactorily divvy up amongst expectant outreached hands.
My husband has squarely laid blame on my shoulders for his overindulgence.
