Crumbly peanut butter cookies studded with salted peanuts. If you’re a true peanut butter lover – This cookie is for you!

So I took a break.
A break from recipe testing.
A break from writing about food.
I don’t remember the last time I posted a photo on Instagram.
These cookies? They’re old. I baked those weeks and weeks ago and because of my self-imposed hiatus, I never got around to posting them.
I’m back.
I have recently resumed recipe testing.

I’m writing a post.
So there’s that.
Why the break?
Mostly because my commentary was taking on a political bent.
Politics has taken over every conversation we have these days. For or against this administration – Politics, taking sides, yelling and not listening – It’s the name of the game.
I’m suffering from politics and scandal fatigue.
But at the same time there are issues affecting my community which I should speak about.

Here’s the direction M.O.B. is headed:
I plan to write about recipes.
I will still inject humor into my posts. It’s what I do. Even when I’m angry I crack a joke.
I will write about issues important to me and to people of color.
I will weave this into the tapestry that is the new Mind Over Batter.
You can flow with me or not.
But I refuse to stand idly by, or pretend these issues do not affect us.
Because they do. Every single one of us. We don’t have to agree on politics to practice civil discourse.

It’s getting dangerous out here, folks. Never in my life have I seen friendships and relationships lost over our inability to agree on a political candidate, on our politics. Shit, we argue even when we’re on the same side. I don’t see it ending any time soon. I do want to contribute to the conversation in a civil manner. Maybe we can find some common ground. We have much more in common than we think.
Now flow with me, let’s talk about these Crumbly Peanut Butter Cookies.

I found these cookies on Martha Stewart’s website. This peanut butter dough is studded with peanuts. I went the unsalted route. I suggest you add some salted peanuts instead. The cookies are baked and no matter how long, they remain crumbly.
Definitely not a sandwich cookie.
These crumbly gems are for the hardcore PB lover in your life. My son hates PB cookies.
I say eff his feelings and I bake them often.
They’re that good.
