peanut butter cookie recipes using natural?

F Schubert | Dec 28, 2006 02:41 AM

Seems like every PB cookie recipe out there recommends using a processed brand (Skippy is a fave) and many warn that you'll get inferior results if you use natural PB. I don't doubt it, but I do wonder if it's truly impossible to get a good cookie using natural pb, or if recipe writers have just collectively decided that since more people have the industrial stuff on hand than the real mccoy, they'll provide recipes that are designed to work best for the majority.

Has anyone found or tried to come up with a decent cookie that uses real peanut butter rather than the nasty PB-flavored crisco that's everywhere? Surely there must have been PB cookies around before the advent of hyrdogenation!

Thanks to anyone who can help me feel good about eating my favorite cookie again.
