Hey. You know what’s awesome? YOU’RE AWESOME! You know what else is awesome? It’s PKD time! Well, not really. But the first part was true, I swear!
A few days ago I promised your lovely asses a recipe for Triple Peanut Butter Cookies. Well, I don’t want you to think I’m a liar. So here it is:
* 1¼ cups packed light brown sugar
* 1 cup all-natural peanut butter
(creamy or chunky)
* 2 large eggs
* 1 cup low-fat peanut flour
* ¼ cup chopped roasted peanuts
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
* 1/8 teaspoon salt
I’ve never seen peanut flour before in a recipe. I’ve never used it and have no idea how much it costs. I do know it’s a good substitute for people who have Celiac Disease. Anyway, here’s the rest:
Preheat the oven to 350. In a medium bowl, beat together brown sugar and peanut butter with a wooden spoon. Beat in 1 egg at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in peanut flour, peanuts, baking soda, vanilla and salt.
Roll dough into 1½-inch balls(giggle). Place balls two inches apart on a cookie or baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Use a fork to make criss-cross marks on tops of cookies and to flatten to about ½-inch thickness. Bake 10 minutes or until cookies are just set. Transfer cookies (still on parchment or foil) to a wire rack; cool completely. (Cookies will firm up upon baking.)
Optional add-ins: If desired, stir ½ cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips, and/or golden raisins or dried cranberries into the dough.
Now, unless you’re like this guy, you’re going to have to find a way to chop your nuts(oh! the jokes). If you try to chop them with a knife(sorry dudes) you’re going to get pretty frustrated(oh lordy). Those nuts don’t want to be chopped! Here’s what ya do. Put the nuts in a sack(HAHAHA!). No, really. Put them in a dish cloth or something like that and close the ends in one hand. With the other hand, crush those nuts! Use your kitchen mallet or a hammer and show those nuts you mean BUSINESS! Just imagine them as belonging to one of these douches. I assure you, it’s easier(and more fun) that way.
YOU’RE GONNA LOVE MY NUTS 😀
