peanut butter cookies
July 17, 2013 § 49 Comments
I keep finding myself in the kitchen replicating recipes I find on all the wonderful blogs I read. Pretty soon I may have to start a section on my blog for “featured blog recipes”. I found this recipe at homemadedelish the other day and I used up a whole jar of peanut butter making two batches! No flour in these peanut butter cookies! These cookies are so soft, chewy, nutty, sweet and salty. I am not much of a baker, however, I am trying to change. My son loves baked goods so much and I feel as though I am depriving him of so many good homemade treats. It sure would be better than store-bought cookies, hand pies and puddings. He actually made the second batch!
- 1 cup all natural creamy peanut butter (I used Adam’s)
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup salted blister peanuts, crushed
- 1/8 cup sugar for fork print
Preheat oven 350°. Mix all ingredients in a medium size bowl. Roll little balls of dough in the palms of your hand, then roll along your crushed peanuts. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Dip a fork into sugar and “stamp” each ball to flatten into a cookie shape. Bake for 12 minutes.
Serve with a cold glass of milk.
