Flourless, Butterless Peanut Butter Cookies

Flourless, Butterless Peanut Butter Cookies


Do you know what's better than a quick and easy peanut butter cookie? This isn't a question I'm going to answer, I really don't know!



In retrospect, maybe some pumpkin peanut butter cookies. Because I am SO behind on my fall baking it's getting close to ridiculous. But I will get there. Canadian Thanksgiving is only 9 days away, so if I'm planning on enjoying pumpkin treats for Thanksgiving, I'd better up my game. Also, I fully intend on celebrating both Canadian and American Thanksgiving. Because who can say no to a feast?

So in the meantime, I am going to be growing my cookie repertoire with a simple peanut butter recipe. Because while I have all these grand plans on making heaps and heaps of food, my pantry is sadly lacking. So I'm using up what I have. Which, as you can see, is not much.

Baking ingredients shopping trip tomorrow? I am thinking yes!

What you'll need:

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, and mix until fully combined.
  3. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet. Flatten each ball with a fork, creating a criss cross pattern.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies begin to brown. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

  1. I've tried this before and I find that it's good just out of the oven. After that it is kind of "flat" and I once received a complaint that it is an expired cookie hah..hah...
