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.
