Best peanut butter to use for cookies?

I want to make some peanut butter toffee cookies and it calls for smooth peanut butter. Is there a more favored brand of peanut butter for cookies?

  1. No matter what style smooth or crunchy I like the flavor of JIF.

    1. Take a look a the Cooks' Illustrated taste-off for PBs in and out of cookies... http://www.cooksillustrated.com/image...

        Thanks!! This helps a lot! :) I love America's Test Kitchen but I don't subscribe to Cook's Illustrated. :)

          that's crazy to me that people all hated the natural pbs. interesting. i love smucker's natural and that ground at the store (although the grind your own is HARD to cook with). And I like many of the organic brands but you have to be careful since many of the organics aren't sugar free the way the naturals are.

      2. Jif has worked best for me. I find Skippy too salty.

        1. JIF by far. Dark, rich and creamy.

          1. JIF, especially when baking.
