Not only do I love cookies, especially when I’m tired, anxious, stressed, or sad (hello emotional eater!!), but more importantly I love to give them away. I’m such a firm believer that if ever you are feeling the weight of the world it’s time to turn the attention outward. Give a little love to someone else. Yes, the work will still be there when you get back, but somehow the load will seem lighter and you’ll be amazed at how quickly you accomplish things once you’ve served others.

Peanut Butter Meltaway Cookies

It’s never a bad day to snuggle up with a good book and peanut butter meltaway cookies or to drop by someone’s house and spread a little love.

Especially since not only are they filled with chocolate but they are rolled in cinnamon sugar which is surprisingly the best flavor combination EVER. We hope you love them as much as our family does!

Oh, and before I forget, these cookies freeze beautifully both as the dough and after baking! Hooray!!

Could You Substitute Biscoff For Peanut Butter in Cookies?

If peanut butter is not the primary source of fats in the recipe, you should be fine.

I would compare the fat content of the two.

Biscoff can definitely be substituted for peanut butter in peanut butter sandwiches.

Can You Use Salted Butter In Recipes That Call For Unsalted Butter?

If you do not have unsalted butter for a recipe, you could use salted butter.

Just leave out the added salt in the recipe.

Can Peanut Butter Cookies Be Frozen?

Cookies should be frozen individually after they’ve cooled completely, meaning they should be placed on a baking sheet, not touching, until frozen solid.

Once frozen, cookies should be placed in a freezer bag and can be frozen for up to 3 months.
