This is it, you guys- my signature cookie, and it’s here, from me, to you- because it’s #2020 and we could all use a little peanut butter crackle in our lives, right?! You’re welcome and I hope you love it.

First, no, these cookies are not gluten-free, dairy-free, peanut-free, sugar-free or anything free… they are 100% DELICIOUS. I hope you know as much as I love creating deliciously healthy recipes, I also make the real deal and enjoy every bite (as I hope you do, too!).

The recipe was first created based off of a peanut butter cookie recipe from an old Christmas Cookies Magazine of my mom’s that I photocopied (I kid you not!!) in HIGH SCHOOL. There was a suggestion of adding some crystallized ginger to make them peanut butter ginger, and well, the rest is history. I tweaked and chilled and rolled and experimented with temperatures, and you all, this one is IT. Chewy on the inside, crunchy and crackly on the outside with a distinct peanut butter flavor as well as a just-more-than-slight ginger-y spice… You won’t be disappointed, I PROMISE.

Also, an FYI: this recipe makes about 4 dozen, depending on how big you make them. Feel free to freeze half, defrost and bake later- they work just fine (defrost just enough to roll into balls and sugar, before baking).

If you make this recipe, would you PLEASE, pretty please tag me in it? HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

Here’s to health, safety #balance and allll the cookies. ❤️
