…from the California Kitchen
How you doin’? I pretty much love most everything made with peanuts. Peanuts probably originated in South America and spread throughout the New World as Spanish explorers discovered the peanut's versatility. When the Spaniards returned to Europe, peanuts went with them. Later, traders were responsible for spreading peanuts to Asia and Africa. Peanuts proved so very popular in Africa, it was African slaves who smuggled peanuts to the Southern United States, and they took root.
I love texture in baked goods and confections, so peanut brittle and these cookies are my go-to recipes. If you love peanuts like me, you’ll love these incredible Skinny P’nutters. They’re called skinny because they spread to a thin, even wafer when they’re baking. These cookies are filled and topped with peanutty goodness. I bet you can’t eat just one once you discover the crispy edges, chewy interior, and crunchy peanuts!
