During my years of experience in exploring numerous cookie recipes, this Magnolia Bakery Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe catches my attention with the scrumptiousness, crispiness, and deliciousness every time. My love for peanut butter and cookies combines in this recipe, which makes it more special for me.

Magnolia Bakery Peanut Butter Cookies are sweeter than any other cookies mainly because of the addition of peanut butter chips, and sprinkling and coating of sugar. Sugarcoating provides these cookies with a beautiful texture along with a delicious taste.

It is up to you to decide between granulated or any other type of sugar, but it is highly recommended to sugarcoat the cookies, as it makes them heavenly delicious.

How to Store Cookies?

Get an air-tight container, place the cookies, and put them in a refrigerator. However, it is important to seal them properly, so the refrigerator’s cooling does not over freeze or dry the cookies.

If you have different flavors of cookies, make sure you store each flavor in a different container so that the flavors don’t mix.

To be extra careful, you can use a piece of bread to put it on the top of the lid, which will help soak all the moisture. It will also prevent your Magnolia Bakery Peanut Butter Cookies from getting soggy.
