Eggless Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Peanut Butter Cookies were on my tolist since I started baking cookies.Mittu loves homemade cookies so I am excited to try new varieties for her.This time to make it healthy I used half of wheat flour for this peanut butter cookies.These cookies are soft,chewy in the centre and crisp at the edges, she loved it so much that she wanted it for school snacks daily :) I didn't add any essence as I wanted the full flavour of peanut butter alone but you can add vanilla essence if you like.

My Notes:

  • Measure butter room temperature then melt it.
  • You can add full maida too.I am not sure of the outcome with only wheat flour.
  • The cookies spread a little so leave gap while placing them for baking.
  • I baked it two batches and got around 20 small cookies.
  • I didn't keep in fridge but guess you can keep it until preheating time.
  • The baking timing depends on the cookie size and thickness.If you are making a slighter thicker cookie then it might take atleast 20mins to get baked fully, so adjust the timing accordingly.Mine got done in 15mins.
