4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies - Tips!
We played around with the recipe quite a bit (as in we've had a lot of cookies lately!) Add chocolate chips to the batter or use different types of chocolate toppers for different effects.
The amount of sugar used is a matter of taste. I did a few batches with ¾ cup of sugar instead of a full cup and still loved them. 🙂
If there's an allergy to peanut butter in your house, then use any unsweetened nut butter. We used sunflower seed butter.
Ultimately, this was our favorite. It received kudos for the presentation. (I do believe this version looks a bit like a witch's hat!) And, the layer of chocolate on top of the soft cookie was irresistible!
