Peanut Butter Cookies
A rule of thumb is that if a product doesn't have many ingredients then it is less likely to be bad for you. Here's a cookie with only three ingredients.
1 cup Truvia (Nature's calorie free sweetener)The container says 3/4 tsp Truvia = 2 tsp sugar. This recipe originally called for 1 cup sugar. I liked the cookies better baked with 1 cup Truvia than with just 1/2 cup.
1 cup no sugar added peanut butter
How's that for easy to remember ingredients? You can double the recipe and use the whole 16 oz. jar of peanut butter.
I use Truvia because it has the weight and texture of sugar.
I use Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter, creamy. Chunky would probably be good too. This peanut butter only has two ingredients: peanuts and salt.
No comment on the egg.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease cookie sheets (I use Pam Olive Oil)
In a medium bowl mix the three ingredients until well mixed.
Roll the dough into one inch balls. I have a hard time keeping them that small.
Place the balls 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
Flatten each ball slightly.
Spray Pam on a small cookie cutter (I got mine out of a holiday Play-Doh set), dip it in Truvia (or not) and press into the center of each cookie.
Bake about 9 minutes or until the edges are set and bottoms are slightly browned. I found it is easy to overcook these cookies.
On a cookie sheet ready to bake.
Out of the oven cooling.
Only thing left to do is wash the dishes and eat the cookies.
