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!
Flourless, Butterless Peanut Butter Cookies
What you'll need:
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
- In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, and mix until fully combined.
- Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet. Flatten each ball with a fork, creating a criss cross pattern.
- 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.
