Tokaji is one of my favorite dessert wines. The flavors tend to the orange and apricot marmalade end of the spectrum with nice earthy spice notes and pretty wicked acidity. At first it was tough to figure out what to pair a good Tokaji with, but then it hit me: try peanut butter cookies!
Most peanut butter cookies are rather simple, they taste like peanut butter and roastedness. This recipe features the addition of butterscotch bits, which happens to work with my favorite Tokaji wines since they tend to have a little oxidative edge. Another flavor bridge! Besides, peanut butter and Tokaji are two of my favorite things and I will not be denied!
