For just the year and a half that we lived in Southern California, I picked up some really delicious recipes! One of them was from a sweet friend for flourless peanut butter cookies that you couldn't stop eating. This recipe is based off of that. I thought I could just add some Nutella to the mix and end up with the same consistency of cookie, but instead these turned out nothing like cookies and everything like chewy pieces of heaven.
Don't be fooled. They look like cookies, yes, but when you bite into them they are thin and airy, with a crispy outer crust and chewy center. Interesting, I know. You'll just have to make them and see for yourself!
