This week Jasmine of Jasmine Cuisine selected Peanut Butter Crisscrosses on page 78 of Dorie’s book.  I thought these would make a nice extra treat for guests to munch on at “the Little Prince’s” first birthday party, so in the midst of making all the other food for the party not to mention the stress and excitement of making my very first children’s birthday cake (I will post pictures of that soon!) I managed to squeeze in this recipe as well.

And…I found my camera!

These are your classic peanut butter cookies, and I was really expecting both “Prince Charming” and I to love them (peanut butter cookies are a favorite for both of us) so I didn’t make any changes to the recipe.  I’m not sure where the fault lies, perhaps with the store brand peanut butter I used in the recipe, but these just didn’t have the peanut butter punch we expected.  They are still good cookies, but not quite what we were expecting.  I think I will have to try them again with a different brand of peanut butter.

Thank you to Jasmine for choosing this recipe, as always you can find the full recipe on our host’s site.
