During the special holidays throughout the year, my wife gets a little sweet tooth. Her favorite cookie is the peanut butter cookies she discovered on her own. It is also a pleasure to share this recipe with you. What I like about this recipe is that this cookie is not too sweet. I am not much of a sweet tooth, as you all know by now, but this is one cookie I cannot pass up on. What is different about this cookie, that I seem to like so much, is that it is not as oily as the others when baked and it has two of my favorite nuts: peanuts and walnuts.
A Cookie With Less Sugar
1 cup brown sugar
½ -3/4 cup peanut powder
½ cup butter
2 small eggs (or 1 large egg will do)
1 tsp. baking soda
Pinch of salt
1½ cups flour
2.83oz. (80g) almond nuts
1 tsp. cinnamon
Combine the sugar and peanut powder.
Then cream the sugar, peanut powder, and butter together.
Blend in one egg at a time. Add the vanilla or almond essence and mix well.
Then stir the flour into creamed mixture.
The mixture, blended in well, it should look like this.
Chop the 3/4 of the almonds and add it to the mixture. Blend.
Roll into balls, diameter about 1 or 1½”(for larger cookies), and placed on greased cookie sheets (about 5″ apart). Place a piece of almond in the centre of each cookie and flatten slightly. Preheat in a preheated 325°F oven for 15-18 minutes.
This recipe makes about 2 dozen large cookies.
Well that’s it for another another. Hope you enjoy making these cookies. Tell me what you think.
See you later!
