Peanut Butter Stout Cookies

By using powdered peanut butter rather than regular peanut butter, you really infuse the flavor of the stout into the soul of these stout cookies. The finished product is not overly sweet, but rather rich and robust in flavor. Try replacing the stout with your favorite porter!
