This recipe is similar to one that I printed off the internet a couple years ago, tucked into book and promptly forgot about it. Well, I came back across the original recipe again and decided adapt them to my liking.  These cookies mix up fast and, since, they are drop cookies, require no rolling and cutting. I love the blend of white chocolate and peanut butter in these cookies, but the best part is the sea salt sprinkled on top!

A reader recently had problems with this recipe and I hate when that happens…makes me wonder where I went wrong. Did I write down an ingredient or amount incorrectly? This is the problem when I’m writing on and editing sometimes. Let’s chalk it up to human error. After reviewing the recipe again I’m not sure why it didn’t work, but to make them a bit more fail proof I adjusted the amount of peanut butter and removed the melted white chocolate. Please let me know if it still doesn’t work. I’m going to ask Em to make these today with out my help and see how they turn out. Sometimes it helps having a second pair of eyes on a recipe.

    I’m confused. The recipe calls for 1 1/4 cups of peanut butter, but the instructions don’t include it. The recipe also calls for 1/4 tsp kosher salt and in the instructions tells you to mix then flour salt and baking soda together, but in the next step tells you to sprinkle the salt on top of the cookies. Could you clarify the recipe a little?

    I’d like to add to my first comment. Way more flour needs to be added to get the cookies to a proper consistency. I tried with the 1 1/4 cup and my cookies turned into puddles.
