This recipe is an example of one of those moments where two already wonderful things combine to become greater than the sum of their parts.
The smooth saltiness of peanut butter is transformed into a caramel-like chewiness when combined with the homely richness of the cookie dough.
The moistness of the peanut butter also gives these cookies an extended shelf-life, still fresh up to a week after baking.
