I am so excited! I got the best Fall package in the mail on Friday and I couldn’t wait to share it with you. It is Peanut Butter & Co. new Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter. OMG!!! Pumpkin and peanut butter is an amazing combination. The peanut butter is so creamy with hints of cinnamon and pumpkin flavor. It’s not to over-baring, but simply perfect. When I got the peanut butter the first thing I thought of was cookies. You know me and cookies, so Sunday I baked up a batch of my favorite peanut butter cookies and I just couldn’t wait to post my recipe. So as you can guess, today’s recipe is Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter Cookies.
The cookies have a nice crispy edge with a soft center. With a perfect little pumpkin and cinnamon flavor. When you take the first bite you think mmmmm, then the second bite you can really taste all of the flavors come together. It simply the perfect Fall cookie and a great way to get that pumpkin fix in.
Want to know a secret? If you spread Peanut Butter & Co. pumpkin spice peanut butter right on the cookie, you are in pure heaven. You could even sandwich the cookie together with some Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter. I just smeared some on top of a few cookies for my afternoon snack. Ohhhh, or add a little vanilla ice cream with a drizzle of Pumpkin Spice PB and sandwich it between 2 cookies. I am so trying this!!
The secret to bringing out the flavor of the peanut butter is adding a pinch of maple syrup in the batter. Trust me on this. Plus I added some cinnamon in the batter and when I did the crisscross pattern on top I dipped the tines of my fork in a cinnamon and sugar mixture. The smell of these cookies baking will have everyone running to the kitchen.
I also want you to know that these cookies freeze beautifully. Just leave on the counter for a few minutes to come to room temperature. Plus they are good to eat frozen too! Yummy!
