It was about 2 hours before I planned to go to bed and I had a craving for freshly baked warm peanut butter cookies. Big time. It was a cold and dark night and we’d had a dinner that I had found less than satisfactory (more on that later). I had a case of the almost Mondays and I just wanted something to warm my soul.
Now, I LOVE the flourless peanut butter cookie recipe on the back of the Kraft Peanut Butter jar. It’s quick, easy, and delicious. But on Sunday night, not only was I craving peanut butter cookies, but I was craving coconut too. Why? I can’t be sure (I wouldn’t be surprised if it was because the back of my mind knew those were the only two baking type ingredients I had on hand). So, with a quick bit of googling, I found Ally of Sweet & Savoury’s recipe! Basically the Kraft recipe with coconut, but hey, it sounded just about perfect me me!
Super quick, super easy, and less than a half hour from start to munching down on my first cookie.
I only made a half recipe (which ended up being a good decision, over the course of the next 24 hours I may have eaten 7 cookies to the hubs’ 3).
I still can’t stop thinking about how perfect they were with a hot cup of tea.
Flourless Peanut Butter & Coconut Cookies
From: Sweet & Savoury (My comments in parentheses)
- 1 c. peanut butter (1/2 c.)
- 1 c. brown sugar (1/2 c.)
- 1 c. coconut (1/2 c.)
- 1 egg (1/2 egg, I actually scooped out half the egg)
- 1 t. baking soda (1/2 t.)
- 1/2 t. vanilla (1/4 t.)
Mix all ingredients together. Form into balls, place on sprayed baking sheet. (Do the fork thing to give the cookies lines.) Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 min. Do not over bake. (Enjoy with a big glass of milk and/or tea.)
