PEANUT BUTTER KRISPIE COOKIES



I recently made Elsie FLOURLESS PUMPKIN OATMEAL CRANBERRY COOKIES. Her hubby John is a peanut butter cookie lover and I planned to make him Peanut Butter Cookies That Make You Go Wild. He loved those cookies as you can see by the expression on his face but I wanted to try a new recipe.

The recipe is from HERE. John loved them and I hope you do also.

Ingredients:


1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter- softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup flour
1 1/4 cup Rice Krispie cereal

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

 Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

Cream butter and sugar together until fluffy.

 Beat in peanut butter, egg, and vanilla until creamy.

 Combine flour, salt, and soda in a separate bowl. Slowly beat in to the wet ingredients. Gently stir in rice krispies.

 Allow the  dough to  chill for 1 hour.

Roll into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheets.

 Bake for 9-11 minutes or until bottoms start to slightly brown.

 Cool for several minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to cooling rack.



 If you don't chill the  dough it will result in a flatter cookie.

  2. These look interesting. I remember long ago I made a cookie with rice krispies. Was wondering if you could use almond butter instead of peanut butter. Will have to do a search and see if it will work. Going to put this on my list of to makes. Thanks for sharing, and glad you got back safe and sound.

  10. I wonder how these would be with coconut flour? I'll have to try it... we don't eat regular flower but coconut is usually a decent replacement. Thanks for linking up at Share the Wealth Sunday!

    1. I don't know Carly, I've never used coconut flour. Would love to know if you make them with coconut flour how they came out.

      Thanks for stopping by.
