I signed up for the Bitten Word's Cover-to-Cover: Holiday Cookies Project and got assigned the Vegetarian Times "Thai Peanut Butter Cookies". A quick peak in my cupboard, confirmed that I had all the needed ingredients on hand when the assignment came in. Since Tim was off in India again, I jumped right in and made a batch .
Results: The cookie reminded me of Willy Wonka’s famous "3 course meal" in a stick of gum with each flavor being unique and having a time release on the tongue. The cookie starts on the palate as a classic peanut butter cookie, followed by a creamy coconut note, and ends with the surprising bite of heat from the curry. This is great refrigerator roll cookie that will stand out from the crowd - a real keeper but use the kitchen aid instead of recommended mixer. These cookies are much too dense for an electric mixer and not really a Christmas cookie, but I will make again.
