Minute Peanut Butter Cookie


I have learned that peanut butter will make my cookie recipe act completely different! I have tried it 5 different ways and came back to the first way I tried it.  Isn’t it always like that??  What happens is that we are going to get a crunchier cookie then the other recipes.  I have tried it with the whole egg trying to get something softer and it makes it cakey.  So egg yolk it is!  (Note: It’s important to let the cookie cool completely so it will harden up. This takes about 10-15 minutes.) 


Adding more than 1 tbsp peanut butter also doesn’t make a cookie so I decided to add more peanut butter on top in a coconut oil drizzle to get more of that wonderful flavor.  (Use a food scale, it has to be 16 grams of peanut butter.  A regular tablespoon measuring spoon will add too much peanut butter!) Now…. I think they might be perfect or as close to it as I can get at the moment! 


 That’s exactly 4 inches wide.  These little paper baking cups were too hard for me to walk away from at Target.  Apparently you can put them in the oven too.  I thought it would be perfect for a large peanut butter cookie.


 I get to use the giant fork I have in my silverware drawer! I ended up dragging it across more than pressing down. You don’t really need to do this but I love the way it looks.  It’s a nice visual signal to your brain that you’re about to have peanut butter! 


 Good god that thing is huge! Nice and sturdy like a cookie should be. 

024The peanut butter drizzle soaks in pretty quickly.  So it’s not a sticky mess and just adds a nice kick of flavor to the top of this. 

017If you use two 3.5 inch ramekins you can get a nice thin regular crisp cookie.  What I learned today is that if you are too quick to separate your eggs and leave egg white in your batter then you will most definitely get a softer cookie. So be sure to separate all the white out and if you get a softer result then it’s most likely because of the egg white. 


 That’s a big difference in thickness and texture! I also used some truvia on the topping for these guys and I didn’t like the result at all.  It doesn’t get soaked into the cookie and doesn’t dry up on top so it’s sticky.  These are still really yummy but just a tad more like cake then cookie.  Just keep that in mind when you are separating the yolk from the egg.

      It’s based on one large cookie. If you make two smaller cookies then divide that information in half.

      Nutritional information is for the whole batch. If you make two smaller cookies then divide the info by 2.
