peanut butter cookies
ok, so i was craving cookies one night, just any cookies, and noticed i had all the ingredients except for flour. I was so bummed, so next morning, I was searching on yahoo, google, just anywhere to find a substitution, and found that it is PEANUT BUTTER!!!
Well, needless to say, i found an unopened package of flour, i went by the recipe on the package, except I made some changes, lol. I can't stand egg, so I left that out, and a took out 1 cup flour and added 1 cup peanut butter. Same with frosting, the original recie called for milk, but my daughter drank the rest of it, lol (she's 2), and it tasted just as good if not better!!!

  • Step 1

    Cream together 1 cup sugar, 1 cup butter, and 1 tsp vanilla. Mix until there are no lumps and very creamy

  • Step 2

    Mix in 1 1/3 cup of flour and 1 tsp baking soda. Mix until smooth!!! Make sure there are no lumps!!!

  • Step 3

    Mix in 1 cup peanut butter, doesn't matter if its chunky or creamy. We had creamy on hand so I used that. Mix until well blended. You will see why it's good not to have any lumps!!!

  • Step 4

    Spoon them onto a cookie sheet using a teaspoon. You want them small but not to small. Just small enough to fit the whole thing in your mouth!!! It tastes better that way LOL!!!
    BAKE @ 375 for 15 minutes

  • Step 5

    Okay, while cookies are baking, mix together a 1 lb box of powdered sugar, 1 cup butter, 1 tsp vanilla. Mix until creamy.
    Next here is the best part mix in the unsweetened cocoa until you reach the chocolatey level you like!!!

  • Step 6

    Now, when each batch is done, put it on a cookie rack until cooled.
    When cooled, smooth some frosting onto the cookie, just enough to cover it, you don't want to overdo it.

  • Step 7

    Now stick the whole cookie in you mouth, and you can taste both flavors, if you just bite into it it's not the same LOL!!!

    ENJOY!!!

Failures are probably due to the type of peanut butter. It's not suggested you use the all natural stuff (adams etc.) because of the oil separation. That, plus all that butter, normally ends in failure. Too much oily stuff I guess. It's not exactly good for you, but peanut butters like skippy or jiff will probably work best.
(learned this by making hershey's kisses peanut butter cookies. Used Adam's one time and Skippy another. Adams = crumbly... Skippy = great!)
Haven't made these yet... but they look soooo good! I'm definitely going to make these soon!

Mine worked out awesome! Is it possible the failures are because of different brands of peanut butter? I know that Kraft peanut butter has a much thicker texture than the home brand stuff from Woolies, and that's just with sandwiches. The difference would be magnified once you add heat. My suggestion would be to make sure you use good quality PB.

i made them also and they were a failur! They tasted weird and flattened out when baking to make a crumbly mess! The second batch i added a heap more flour and piled on the icing and they were still very crumbly! Waste of food and time!
