I have not made these cookies yet, however reading the reviews about the frosting and then looking at the ingredients I think I know what the issue may be. I am pretty sure that the ingredients should be 1 1/4 cup. powder sugar and 1/4 cup peanut butter as with any other butter cream type frosting this would be the ratio. I think the amounts just were mixed up with the ingredients.
These cookies are okay. The cookies themselves were a little dry & not very chocolatey - they were also very thick, based on the instructions given. The topping was way too moist - I doubled the icing sugar & the topping was still quite sticky even after refrigeration. Although not a bad cookie, they are definitely not worth the time involved.
These cookies were really tastey and very different. I didnÂ´t toast the peanuts and I melted the chocolate in the microwave. I also added more powdered sugar to the peanut butter for the topping, which worked out well. Definately give them a try!
Very impressive looking and excellent flavor too! I didn't have peanuts so I skipped them, which didn't seem to matter. I made the dough the evening before and let it chill overnight. The only thing that I would do differently next time is add more powdered sugar to the 'icing'. With only 1/4 cup, the peanut butter stayed sticky. No one seemed to care as they devoured them but it did mean I couldn't stack them on top of each other on the plate very well. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!
