I suppose this recipe should come with a warning if you can't take the heat, but spice it up is my motto and that even includes baked treats, such as these moist yet slightly crunchy peanut butter cookies that my husband said were some of the best ever. If you can't handle too much heat, cut down on the spice, but I assure you this is one cookie you won't forget and they are easy to prepare and the smell when they are cooking is divine. Baking is often a stress reliever and though I am more of a savory girl, I do enjoy treating family and friends to homemade baked goods.
Give this recipe a try because even without the spice, these are delightful cookies and one of the most successful versions of peanut butter cookies that I have whipped together. Easy, and rather unusual with the addition of spice, your palate will be craving for more than just one though your tummy might protest if you eat too many at one sitting. I maintain that dismal Canadian winters call for some spice and always an excuse to turn on the oven to warm up a bit.
