This is an old post where I compare the million dollar winning Pillsbury Double Delight Peanut Butter Cookies to the same cookies made with an easy scratch dough.
Double Delight Peanut Butter Cookies: Darker and chewier as opposed to light and crumbly. They have more of a brown sugar taste, chewier edges and as the usual packaged cookie dough flavorings. Some people might actually prefer this texture over scratch.
Scratch Version of Double Peanut Butter Cookies: Have a good homemade taste. The texture is light and flaky and cookies set up beautifully. I kind of like the scratch because I'm used to it and know it's scratch.
Both were good. In the end, I think the idea of stuffing peanut butter into peanut butter cookies deserves recognition. After making all these stuffed peanut butter cookies, I think I'm going to be disappointed with other peanut butter cookies.
