Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Drizzle

by Lorena

These peanut butter cookies are ADDICTIVE! They’re soft, they melt in your mouth and they have an incredible taste. The dark chocolate is perfect with the coarse sea salt and the peanut butter too.

These cookies are extremely soft and I just love my cookies soft! When you take them out of the oven you NEED to wait for them to cool down before removing them from the baking tray because if not they will fall appart.

To get the texture it’s also important that you cook them just enough. You have to see that they’re barely becoming golden. If you leave them in there for longer they will become crispy.
