This won’t be the first time I’ll have likened a cookie to a hamburger, but I don’t believe ever been as aptly as in this particular instance. In other words, this is the burger of the burger cookies.

As far as cookies go, peanut butter are pretty far down on my list. It’s not that I think they are inedible, but there are so many other cookies that take precedence over peanut butter that it is a rare day that one makes its way into my mouth.

I should tell you straight away that I almost never eat peanut butter cookies. It’s not so much that I hate them, but when it comes time to pick my poison, it’s never my first choice (or even second or third); there’s always going to be another cookie I want to eat instead. But being that the pbc is adored by so many fellow cookie-eaters and also being that the entire raison d’etre of Carpe Cookie is to lead you to the golden nuggets in the overcrowded field of mostly mundane cookies, I realized it was time to represent. Represent the pbc, that is.
