Pastry Road Trip: Peanut Butter Cookie from On The Rise, Bozeman MT

Peanut Butter Cookie from On The Rise, Bozeman
Sometimes you just need a cookie. And if you happen to be passing through Bozeman, Montana, On the Rise has got your back.

I knew from the moment I walked in to this place that it was a very special establishment indeed. Behind the small counter area there was a huge kitchen facility in which employees were creating breads and pastries--the whole placed smelled of flour, sugar, and butter. Wonderful.

But what to choose from their menu of generously sized, carb-heavy sweets? Perhaps the "totally oat" bar (a dense bar cookie with an oaty crumb topping)? Or the cardamom roll? Or the decadent cream cheese brownie?

In the end, simplicity reigned, and I selected the peanut butter cookie, which had a tempting cross-hatch pattern atop, and looked baked to perfection--not too toasty, but with a slightly crisp edge.

I loved this cookie. I felt like this was a breadmaker's approach to a peanut butter cookie-- leaned toward a more carb-y, floury sort of cookie, but it was nonetheless chewy without being too greasy or buttery, and the peanut butter taste was rich without being overpowering. Alone it might tend toward being a bit dry, but paired with a milky cafe au lait, it is perfection. This one is a true carb-lover's cookie.

This cookie sounds lovely. I have not made peanut butter cookies in a long time. I think I need too...now I have a craving:)

That photo is making me want to pack my bags and head west. Everything in that case looks unbelievable.

OMG you were in Bozeman! That town holds a special place in my heart. I will have to visit this place next summer. Cardamom Roll? Yes please!
