1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter. I used chunky
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 egg, room temperature
1 tablespoon milk (I used half-and-half)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Set aside a small bowl with 1/4 cup white sugar, for sprinkling.
Preheat oven to 350 F, no need to grease cookie sheet. I lined pan with wax paper.
Add all dry ingredients, mix as you go. Add remaining ingredients. I use my hands to mix the dough well, I prefer hands versus a mixer.
Form 1″ balls of dough, then roll in the white sugar, then place on cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 min, or until the cookie is slightly firm to the touch. Remove from cookie sheet, allow to cool.
Try not to eat ALL the cookies at once! Yes, they are that good, at least to me 🙂
High in fiber and delicious!
Here’s the info so you can make them as well…..
1 cup unbleached white flour
2 cups unprocessed wheat bran (I used “Hodgson Mill”, purchased on Amazon.com)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease baking sheet, sift flour once, add baking soda, spices, sugar. Add wheat bran and mix well. Combine eggs, molasses, milk and butter; add to wheat bran mixture. Beat well. Dough will be quite sticky. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheet, 2″ apart. Bake 6-8 minutes. The cookie will be slightly firm when baked to doness. Don’t over bake, or the cookie will be dry. 😦
Have with a nice cup of coffee and enjoy! 🙂
