Well, I am absolutely the weirdo that doesn’t LOVE peanut butter. Which is unfortunate for my husband because I never make peanut butter cookies, peanut butter bars, really peanut butter anything. If I have to choose flavors, it is chocolate, mint, herbal, spices, but not peanut butter.
But, tis the cookie season, and ever since I discovered that my sourdough starter makes THE BEST cookies I have ever had, I have been playing around with new cookie recipes. And I had to make a peanut butter inspired cookie for my husband; turns out I actually can’t stop eating them.
I am new to the sourdough starter cookie world, but so far what I have learned is fluffy, fluffy, soft, and fluffy. Never before have I had cookies stay soft and fluffy for a week after making them. Forget having to triple wrap your cookies and then pop the hockey puck of a cookie into the microwave to try and get it to soften up. These sourdough starter peanut butter cookies will be completely devoured before they even have a chance of hardening up.
Bonus: There is no rise time involved in making these bad boys. It literally took me 10 minutes to make the dough and get them on the baking sheet. 15 minutes to cook. And BOOM – delicious warm cookies that will have you looking for a glass of milk (do people still drink milk?).
Pro Tip: Forget parchment paper, forget oil spray, these slipat mats are life changing.Print

Gluten free and vegan products do not have to be used, but didn’t seem to alter the end results when I used them.
