The first patch I made came out a little overcooked. They weren't burnt, but they were just crunchy the following day. But I took the second batch out a little sooner and they were perfect. Nice and peanut butter-y, but more important to me, the perfect softness.
Basically I was really impressed by this recipe considering it came out of the instruction manual. But come to think of, wouldn't you trust the people who know the gadget the most to be able to come up with the best ideas for it?
Have you ever made a recipe directly out of a tool's instruction manual? And if you have a KitchenAid mixer, what's your favorite thing to use it for?
