Peanut butter and cinnamon may not be a familiar flavor combination to you, but that’s about to change. The chocolate and peanut butter duo is a favorite among many of us but I wanted to spice things up a bit during this cookie making season.
I whipped up a batch of my favorite peanut butter cookie dough. It’s soft, chewy, and puffs up nicely in the oven. The dough is not too sweet – it actually has a hint of saltiness which pairs so well with the semi sweet chips I mixed into the batter.
Next I added a healthy dose of cinnamon chips. Have you had these yet? They are crazy good and I have been sneaking them into all kinds of recipes lately. They add a bit of unexpected spice to these cookies. Salty and sweet, spicy and chewy, soft and puffy. That right there is a perfect cookie in my book!
To me, cinnamon = Christmas, so be sure to bake some to put on your goodie tray this year!
