Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

Dry

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup sifted white flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Wet

  • 1/2 cup margarine or butter (Try dairy free if you have a really sensitive stomach)
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed gently)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg

Instructions:

1. Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl.
2. Thoroughly combine wet ingredients in a big bowl until a creamy texture is achieved.
3. Blend dry ingredients into wet ingredients a bit at a time with a spoon or fork. Switch to using your hands as it gets thicker. Mix well.
4. Roll into 1 inch balls.
5. Place on a very lightly greased baking sheet with 1 inch space around each one. I can fit about 12 on a standard sheet.
6. Press each ball down half way with a fork.
7. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Watch & wait for the edges to get a bit brown.
8. Remove from baking sheet immediately and place on a cooling rack. They will feel a bit flimsy when they are still hot.
9. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes then store in an air-tight container.

Makes about 2-3 dozen.

These are a great comfort food. I like to eat them with my favourite milk-replacement beverage, like rice milk. They might be good with chocolate chips, but I’ve never tried it.
