Someone asked me for this recipe this morning, and after I shared it with them, I decided to make a batch myself.
I really like these cookies, they’re simple to make and gluten-free. But one thing about them is they are terribly sweet. So I decided to see what would happen if I cut the sugar down considerably.
They turned out super – not too sweet and super peanut butter flavor. Changes are in blue.
Peanut Butter Cookies (Revisited)
- 3 tbsp granulated sugar
- 3 tbsp packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 egg
Cream ingredients together and drop by spoonful onto a baking sheet. Dip a fork in sugar and press down the dough. Bake at 300 degree F for 10-13 minutes.
This usually gets a good, soft cookie, but I wanted to try for a crispier outside. But they are prone to burning. So at the 13-minute mark, I turned off the oven and let them sit for 5 more minutes. They turned out perfectly – crisp on the outside and gooey on the inside.
Maybe this will keep me from eating all the toffee that is supposed to be for Christmas Eve, LOL
