Peanut butter has long had a particular place in the hearts of foodies everywhere because of its rich, velvety texture and nutty richness. It complements both savory and sweet food beautifully because of its versatility. The decadent flavor of peanut butter is a crowd-pleaser whether it is spread on toast, added to smoothies, or served as a dipping sauce.
I’ve always had a sweet tooth. Cakes, caramels, chocolate, marmalade—I’m attracted to anything sweet. You won’t believe this, but throughout the years I discovered that some peculiar people don’t have the same craving for sweet foods as I do. This incredible Bundt cake I made, with its toppings of tender melted chocolate and peanut butter cream, is a taste monster, in my opinion. Just look at it!
I’ve made a bunch of these cookies, but there were gone in pretty much one day! I call that a culinary success. I had my doubts about ginger and how it would play out with the rest of the sweet ingredients, but it turned out amazing. Without ginger, these cookies would lose a bit of texture, but most importantly, an interesting spicy note you certainly don’t expect in a sweet tea-time cookie.
