Looking for cookies to serve during your July 4 festivities? Bake this cookie that creates an explosion of flavors in your mouth, of the sweet-savory kind. The sweet drop cookies are nicely contrasted by the saltiness of the chips, but get a fascinating flavor dimension from the nutty Smooth Operator peanut butter. One bite and even doubters will be singing a new story.

Note: I found that you can also get extra flavor-points by using The Bee’s Knees peanut butter, which adds pleasing mellow end-note from the honey mingling with the brown sugar.

  3. Joan C. says:

    Can I use Gluten Free flour in this cookie recipe?

  4. Marcee says:

    Joan C. ….. sure, you can use GF flour in almost any recipe.

    Actually, our bodies do not really need gluten. The latest findings have been that it adds weight on us. You can also use other flours.

    I’ve made this recipe many times …. also, I use unsalted chips. Taste is much better. A bit milder.
