Test Kitchen Tips
  • This recipe does not contain flour. Reduced-fat or generic brands of peanut butter are not recommended for this recipe.
  • Cutting butter into dry ingredients results in tiny bits of flour-coated butter throughout the dough, creating a cookie crust that is both tender and crumbly at the same time. If you don’t have a pastry blender, use two knives to cut in the cold butter.
