I'm always looking for new recipes. And anything that puts coffee into a baked good catches my eye. So when I saw this recipe for a peanut butter cookie that had coffee granules in it (look, you can see them!), I just had to give it a try. And, well, I'm just not sure how I feel about them yet. The peanut butter cookie part is really tasty. It is one of those peanut butter cookies that almost crumbles and melts in your mouth when you bite into it. Reminds me of the old Joy of Baking recipe my mom used when I was a kid. But I'm just not really sure that the coffee adds much for me. My husband really liked them and was able to identify the coffee flavor. He also asked if there was chocolate in them, which I'm sure came from some of the richness in the coffee. But bottom line, I would definitely make them again if I were looking for something unique to take somewhere because they were easy and tasty, but probably not just for us at home.
Recipe can be found here on One Perfect Bite. I found it via Cookie Madness.
And I apologize for the horrible picture. It is the only one that was in focus.
