Wow, these cookies are just amazing. I have a thing for anything peanut butter and these cookies certainly do the trick.
It’s hard to find a good peanut butter cookie recipe that doesn’t call for corn syrup and still comes out tasting like peanut butter, so that’s why I turn to this flourless version from my good friend Martha – they are the perfect combination of salty and sweet with a truly peanut butter taste. And did I mention with so few ingredients, they are so easy to make?!
Flourless Peanut Chocolate Cookies
from Martha Stewart
1C creamy peanut butter
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 Tsp baking soda
1/4 Tsp salt
3/4C semisweet chocolate chips
1/2C roasted salted peanuts (I substitute walnuts, I prefer them in a cookie to peanuts)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl beat peanut butter, sugar, egg, baking soda, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips and peanuts (or your nut of choice).
With moistened hands, roll dough about 1 heaping Tbs at a time, into balls. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheets.
Bake until cookies are golden and puffed, about 14 to 17 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Cool 5 minutes on sheets, transfer to racks and cool completely.
