What?! You don’t have to bake cookies on a cookie sheet?
Nope. You don’t. Shocking, I know.
In my quest to create the best peanut butter cookie a home cook can make, I decided to try baking them in a jumbo muffin tin! (turns out other people have thought of this, too…)
Surprisingly…or not surprisingly…these make really delicious cookies that don’t spread out too much.
My peanut butter cookie recipe has no butter. Just peanut butter, sugars, an egg, vanilla, baking soda and a teensy bit of flour. So, in the science of it, these are very likely to spread.
The muffin tin keeps them from spreading and helps the baking soda rise even more. It is amazing.
If you’ve never used a jumbo muffin tin to bake…I highly recommend you try it. You will have to check, check and triple check your cookies as they bake so you don’t burn them – or make them over browned on the bottom. But, let me tell you… it works.

(Also, thank you to my mother-in-law who got me the jumbo muffin tin. Love ya!)
