In the name of calorie control, I’m allowing myself to eat just one cookie today. I pretend I’m having a fancy tea party and while I enjoy this sweet and delicious crumbly treat, I wish for a world without calories and fat.
Because only a world without all those things will allow me to eat more than one cookie.
Everything you need for these wonderful cookies is probably already stashed in your pantry, and these cookies are super easy to make. But if you’re worrying about sugar or fat, you should probably restrict yourself to just one a day! It will be a challenge because they are so delicious.
All this cookie marveling almost made me forget to tell you that these cookies have no flour. Just creamy peanut butter, sugar, baking soda and a few more ingredients.
Peanut Butter Cookies
- 2 cups creamy peanut butter
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
You’ll also need two baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl mix peanut butter and sugar until combined and smooth.
Add eggs one at a time and mix. Add in the baking powder, salt and vanilla, mix until blended.
With moist hand, shape dough into 1-inch balls and place on prepared baking sheets. Using a fork, press into cookie to flatten and make a pattern.
Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes or until golden and crisp. Turn your cookie sheets halfway between baking to help the cookies bake evenly.
Yield: 18 to 20 cookies
