"Magical" (Chocolate) Peanut Butter Cookies

The EASIEST cookie recipe I've ever made! (See below for alternate recipe, equally simple)

  • 1 Cup creamy peanut butter (I use Peanut Butter & Co CHOCOLATE Peanut Butter)
  • 1 Egg beater
  • 1 cup sugar (it doesn't turn out as well w/ splenda, but you can use it if you want)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, Splenda, the egg beater, and vanilla, and stir well with a spoon.
  3. Roll the dough into balls the size of walnuts. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet. With a fork, press a crisscross design on each cookie.
  4. Bake for 12 minutes, remove from the oven. Cool slightly before removing from pan.

  1. Oh hey... I didn't say this b/c I used only 1c of sugar, but the reason it calls for 1-1/3 c is so that you are supposed to put 1 c in the batter and use the other 1/3c for dipping the fork in so it doesn't stick when you make the criss crosses, and sprinkling on the top.

    You can make the with crunchy PB too!

  2. I know...i just always use more splenda than sugar. It says measures cup for cup but it DOESN'T!
