Someone brought a batch of peanut butter cookies to the office today, and it occurred to me that I’ve never seen any other cookie that had been smashed down with a fork, nor have I seen PB cookies that weren’t smashed.
Is there a culinary reason for this or is it just one of those things that’s always done?
And are there other baked (or any other style) items that have an identifying feature that’s just there because it’s always been that way?
And if you’re envious, don’t be - the cookies were just sorta meh - too soft and grainy. Maybe that’s why they were brought in for us?? :smack:
