Dear SOS: No kidding -- these are the most amazing! My family often visits Santa Cruz, and we always end up at the Buttery. Everything there is incredible, but I dream about these cookies. I would so appreciate the recipe. It’s just too far to drive when we need a fix!
Dear Marni: The Buttery’s take on peanut butter cookies, massive enough that you almost need two hands to hold them, is at once rich, sweet and perfectly crumbly. Each cookie is garnished with a coating of dry-roasted peanuts around the edge. It’s like a little bit of peanut butter heaven with every bite.
