Peanut butter cookies — with that iconic crosshatch pattern pressed into their tops — are a holiday classic for many Americans. But as good as they are, we decided to play with the tradition a bit. We spiked our peanut butter cookies with a “jelly” of finely chopped golden raisins. We also ditched the flour in favor of upping the peanut flavor.
The result is a slightly sweeter and delightfully chewy take on this holiday cookie. And of course we kept the crosshatch.
