My peanut butter cookies= ..not so great? I am pretty sure I messed up somewhere along the rather simple process. Maybe the bad quality peanut butter? Or possibly because I didn't flatten them enough before baking.
They came out oily and fatty tasting! And it's definitely not the yummy fatty(buttery goodness) taste. It's more like you are downing a bottle of peanut oil with each bite. Simple peanut butter cookies really come down to the quality of the peanut butter you use! Get a good trusted quality brand
Burnt bottoms + bad peanut butter + oily- ness - crunch - chew = sad face
Peanut Butter Cookies
recipe from Fuss Free Cooking
-makes about 20 cookies
1 cup of peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar (I used 1/4 cup*)
1/2 cup wholemeal flour (all purpose flour would also be fine)
1) Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius / 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
2) Mix all the ingredients together.
3) Then take a tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball and put it on the parchment paper lined tray. Repeat this step for the remaining dough. Then use a fork to flatten the individual ball of dough
4) Bake for 10 – 15 minutes or until the top is slightly tan (and a bit firm to touch). Leave the cookies to cool completely before storage or consumption.
I will need to have a redo on this once I get a hold of some GOOD peanut butter. I am sure this recipe worked for many.
