Peanut Butter Streusel Cookies

I received complimentary Heirloom Cookie Sheets to review.  All opinions are mine alone.

Peanut Butter Streusel Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies with Streusel Topping

Decadent peanut butter cookies made with creamy peanut butter and sprinkled with a delicate peanut butter and cinnamon streusel topping.  These cookies are soft and chewy and have plenty of peanut butter flavor packed into a simply delicious cookie.  These cookies are soft and chewy, just like grandma used to make.  They feature the signature crisscross fork marks and are topped with a delicate peanut butter streusel topping that will crumble in your mouth.

 It’s that time of season again, where every kind of cookie is being baked for the holidays.  Making the transition from fall to winter is much more delightful with all the hot soups, warm comfort food and holiday baking.  The first half of winter is not so bad, especially when we get to wear cozy sweater, fuzzy gloves, boots and scarves.  My favorite is spending time next to a cozy fire on the weekend.  You can usually find my friends and I baking up a storm in the kitchen, too!  During this time of year, I like to stock up on baking ingredients like flour, sugar, butter and of course, an array of holiday sprinkles just in case an ice storm or snow storm keeps me inside for a few days.

It’s relaxing to turn on holiday music, invite friends over and sip on hot chocolate while baking an assortment of cookies.  This time of year, my neighbors and family back home always know they will get a box of cookies from me.

Baking the perfect cookie start with a good recipe and finish by baking on a great cookie sheet.

The holidays are a great time to get together with family and friends and bake holiday recipes.  It’s all about spending time with family and making memories.  Make holiday baking easier this year by investing in good cookie sheets.  I love getting the family together and baking easy recipes during this time of the year.  Not only do we get to bake but we also get to taste everything and have a lot of fun.

If you spend time in the kitchen baking for the holidays or have a foodie lover in the family, stainless steel cookie sheets make for the perfect gift this time of season.  I’m obsessed with the baking sheets I have from Heirloom Cookie Sheets!

Heirloom Cookie Sheets Recipe Book Gift Package

I’ve been on the hunt for a heavy duty, stainless steel baking sheets.  I’m always in the kitchen baking throughout the week for my family.  Stainless steel baking ware bakes cookies evenly.  It has a beautiful polished surface which is easy to clean and is also dishwasher safe.

The package I received came with two (2) “classic” Heirloom Cookie Sheets and one (1) copy of the “Heirloom Cookie Collection”.  To look at the Heirloom Gift Package, click here. The cookie sheets are incredibly strong and sturdy .  They won’t ever slope or warp after using.  They are safe for your family to use and have a non toxic coating that won’t leach components over time. If you love baking for your family and friends but are worried about traditional baking ware, this product is a must!  It’s very well made.  Baking enthusiasts will all agree, stainless steel baking sheets are a must in the kitchen!

Peanut Butter Cookies

 We’ve replaced our old, scratched up, chemical laden, nonstick coated cookie sheets with two of these stainless steel pans from Heirloom Cookie Sheets.  Baking ware shouldn’t have to require using parchment paper, aluminum foil, grease or any cooking sprays.  It should be as simple as just placing food on sheet and placing it in the oven.  It really is that simple.  I simply placed the dough on the sheet and pop it in the oven.  I wait for the cookies to cool down and placed on a cooling rack.  No sticking and no need to prepare the sheets in any way.  Clean up is simple.  I use a non abrasive sponge with a little soap.

The holidays are all about giving and I cannot think of a better way to care for family than gifting non-toxic stainless steel baking sheets that won’t ever rust.  Cookie lover’s will love the recipe collection book as well.  The book has dozens of recipes to try for the holiday season as well!

Peanut Butter Cookies with Streusel Topping

If you’re a peanut butter lover like me, you will love this recipe!  Not only is the cookie peanut butter, but the streusel topping is also made with a mixture of peanut butter and cinnamon.  Aren’t they just the cutest cookies ever?

The holidays are not far away and if you’re looking for some festive inspiration, look no further.  Get the kids together and bake an assortment of cookies together.  Baking together is a great time to let the kid’s creative minds work on baking the perfect cookie topped with sprinkles, struesel topping or royal icing.

    This recipe is incomplete, it lists 2 eggs are part of the ingredients, and then fails to mention their use. However the photo does look as though they will taste very nice.

    The best part of muffins? Streusel. The best part of coffee cake? Streusel. The best part of freshly baked pie? Streusel. Yet I’ve never seen streusel on top of a cookie. Mind. Blown.
