Easy Peasy


Tracy at Amuse Bouche for Two introduced The Mistah and I to these Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies. I think you ought to make their acquaintance as well.   The Mistah said, “I’ve had peanut butter cookies before and these are GOOD.  Rich, but not too rich.  That’s it.  I’m a man of few words.”  Yeah, especially when he’s got a cookie in his mouth.  Thirty minutes, a short list of ingredients, and you’ll understand what all the fuss is about.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Adapted from Bon Appetit

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Heat oven to 350 degrees and line two sheet pans with parchment.

Place all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.  Mix on low speed until completely combined.

Using a small ice cream scoop, place six, 1 tablespoon portions of dough, spaced approximately 2 inches apart, on a prepared pan.  Use a fork to press each portion of dough down into a round.

Bake for approximately 12 minutes until the cookies puff slightly, the bottom and edges are set but the center is still soft to the touch.  Cool on the pan for 5 minutes then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
