Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

This morning when I woke up, I was dying to bake and to bake anything.Chelsea and I were ready to bake cupcakes, but I didn't have any cupcake liners or parchment paper... Since actually getting dressed and going to the store to purchase something was out of the question, we opted for cookies instead, and found these delicious and easy peanut butter cookies.

I know my chocolate drizzle doesn't look very pretty, but the cookie makes up for it, I promise!

What you'll need:

  • 2/3 cup sugar (plus extra to roll the cookies in)
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cream the peanut butter and sugar in a bowl by hand, since using a machine just doesn't work out very well... Add in the egg and baking powder and mix until combined.
  2. Roll cookie dough into small balls, then roll in sugar before placing on a cookie sheet. Press a fork lightly on the cookies, to flatten them.
  3. Bake for 10-12 minutes, then let cool completely before moving. Drizzle with chocolate if desired. 

See?! They were even pretty in dough form.

And continued to be pretty after they spent some time in the oven. I'm really in love with these cookies...

Have I convinced you to try them yet?! I hope so. Enjoy!
