Chunky Peanut, Chocolate, and Cinnamon Cookies

These cookies, pairing chocolate with cinnamon, take cues from classic Mexican flavors and go wonderfully with scoops of ice cream. You can also make bite-size cookies by rolling the dough into smaller balls.

    delicious cookie! turned out beautiful! i made with a natural style peanut butter and chopped up chocolate bar. i pulled the cookies @13 minutes (these would be easy to cook too long) and let cool on cookie sheet which they continued to firm up and get a beautiful 'fault line cracked' top.

    I must say these are fanastic. I used more peanuts than the recipe calls for i used a cup and a half and used red skinned salted peanuts when I did the recipe on the recipe builder on weight watchers with 60 cookies to turn out it came to 2 points each Yippee

    Can taste the cinnamon, and the peanut butter. I did omit the peanuts; the cookies are pretty good.

    Passionate... The peanut butter is a major base of this recipe. If you make substitutions, the texture will change. I think your best bet is to find a good chocolate chip cookie recipe and add the cinnamon, 1/4 tsp per cup of flour. (As a rule of thumb, if you can't find or use an ingredient that's in the name of the recipe, it's probably best to find a different recipe.)

    We use sunflower butter instead of peanut butter for our allergy friends.....I have not baked with it. It has all the creaminess of peanut butter but not peanut flavor or really isn't bad....can find in most grocery stores.lhz

    These are THE perfect cookie to dip into milk. They do keep their shape very well, not a spready cookie, and have that nice crunch to them that peanut butter always gives cookies. Used tablespoons of dough and got a lot fewer than 5 dozen cookies. Make these and make sure you have milk on had to dip them in!

    Wasn't as thrilled as other contributor's were with this recipe. Not as sweet as you would think a cookie should be. It definitely kept its shape though and tasted good. Not sure if I would make it again...?

    The cookies came out perfect. Just love the texture and taste. I use chunky peanut butter and omit the nuts and it taste still good. Thanks Martha...
