Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Just in case you haven't made or eaten enough cookies yet....

This recipe is based on one that has been around for years, but I wanted to make it a bit more Weight Watchers P+ friendly so I used a mix of white sugar and brown sugar, and less sugar overall.  The original recipe calls for 1 cup white sugar, but I used 1/4 cup of white and 1/2 cup of loosely packed brown, and it worked just fine.

Ask The Captain... he has eaten most of them already!

You can easily whip up a batch of these cookies and have them baked in less than 20 minutes.  The perfect last minute gift or take-along.  Or just have some on hand to munch on yourself when you get tired of shortbread and chocolate!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
Makes 26 servings of 1 cookie each
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 whole fresh egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cream the peanut butter and sugars together till well blended.
  3. Add the egg, baking soda and vanilla, and beat again.
  4. Take about a teaspoonful of dough at a time and roll into a ball.  Repeat until you have 26 balls.
  5. Place them on the parchment paper a couple of inches apart, and flatten slightly with a fork.  They will double in size as they bake.
  6. Bake for 8 minutes.
  7. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before putting the cookies on baking trays to cool completely.
