Tips to make these cookies

  • Since there is no flour or any leavening agent added, the dough will be very soft and sticky. Make sure to shape them into cookies before baking.
  • Bake them for exact 10 mins or lesser. Over baking can make them too crumbly.
  • Store these cookies at room temperature for up to a week.
  • If you want to store the leftover dough, you can store them in an airtight container in freezer for up to 6 months.

1. Why are my homemade peanut butter cookies crumbly?

One reason – you cooked them too long. Peanut butter cookies look uncooked while they are actually well cooked. Be very cautious and watch them so they are not overcooked.

Another reason can be the ingredient proportion. If the ingredients are not proportionate making the dough too slimy can lead to extra crumbliness in these peanut butter cookies.

2. Why do peanut butter cookies have fork marks?

Peanut butter cookie doughs are normally thick. To ensure they cook well and evenly, it needs to be flattened using a fork before baking.

It surely is recommended to chill them for up to 2 hours as the dough is very soft and there is a possibility of spreading all over the sheet while baking.

But I used refrigerated dates syrup and refrigerated peanut butter for this recipe and eliminated the chilling step.

4. What makes cookies chewy vs crunchy?

Cooking or baking them for the amount of time! Bake them for 8 to 10 minutes to get a chewy and soft texture. Baking them longer makes them crunchy and hard.

5. How long do peanut butter cookies last?

At room temperature, you can store them in an airtight container for up to a week long. And in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

  1. Love this recipe, and I also love the recipe that you use to make your own peanut butter. I am definitely going to try this, but at the moment it is difficult to get dates, but I will keep looking.

    I often wondered why my cookies came out crumbly and was surprised to read that I may be baking them a little too long. I will remember next time not to wait for them to go too brown. Thanks for these helpful tips and it is great to see a recipe that includes these helpful tips like why you need to put the dough in the fridge for a while.
