The Best Peanut Butter Cookie I Ever Ate

April 8, 2010 at 11:57 pm | Posted in Baking | Leave a comment

Was approximately 1 hour ago.  One of my friends at work is hosting a bake sale tomorrow to raise money for Leukemia research.  So I needed something to bring to work that would be delicious enough to hold its own, yet pretentious enough to hold up to my coworkers palates.

You know how sometimes people tell you that they have a secret ingredient for their recipe.  And then you ask them what it is and its some totally normal unsurprising food?  Like ketchup in meatloaf… or cumin in salsa.

Well the not-so-secret in my peanut butter cookies is actually pretty cool.  Its called wattleseed.  Wattleseed is the ground seed of the australian acacia flower.  It has a really awesome hazelnutty, toffee-like, coffee-ish aroma.

I used Martha Stewart’s Peanut Butter Cookie recipe cited on Bakeaholic’s blog, I added one teaspoon of ground wattleseed to the dough and sprinkled the tops of the cookies with Halen Mon Vanilla Sea Salt.

Cheers and happy eating,

Katie
