Okay so I have been wanting to type up this recipe for the longest time and I finally have free time today..so much free time that I plan on dying my hair, relaxing with a mud mask, making these cookies for my broken brother 🙂 and watching an awesome movie…maybe Narnia? I added my own twist to this recipe one night when my brother and his friends wanted peanut butter cookies..now I use to suck at making peanut butter cookies but this recipe is awesome it works..your cookies will be amazing!.
For this recipe you need the following:
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons cactus honey powder
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- extra sugar 🙂
In a large bowl start by beating the butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds (do it..30 seconds..not 20..30 🙂 ). Add the sugar, brown sugar, cactus honey powder, honey, baking soda and baking powder. Beat till combined, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the egg and vanilla till combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer..stir in the rest. Shape the dough in to 1 inch balls ( I use a melon baller)(don’t make them any bigger because then they wont be as good) roll in additional sugar to coat and place on an ungreased cookie sheet…flatten with fork making the crisscross marks. Bake the cookies at 375 for about 8 minutes. Let the cookies cool a minute on the sheet before you transfer them to a wire rack.
I hope you try this recipe and love it!
Have an awesome weekend!!
*I need an idea for a name for my peanut butter cookies..it would be awesome if some how the name could involve mumford and sons because on the piece of paper that had this recipe written down was also a song by them that I didnt want to forget.
I love these cookies, they are delicious! They are traditional Scandinavian sugar and spice cookies and I make sure to make hundreds every year at Christmas time. I made these while watching The Lord of the Rings : The Return of the King. I use this recipe every year…I twist the recipe around and make it my own so here it is…
for the recipe you will need
- 3/4 cup butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs (beaten)
- 1/2 cup molasses
- 4 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
First cream the butter and sugar, then add the eggs and molasses and beat well. Mix all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then add the dry mix to the wet ingredients 1/2 cups at a time, mixing well after each addition. Roll dough into teaspoon sized balls (I use a melon baller) and roll in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Finally you bake on a greased sheet for 8-10 minutes at 350.
My giant bag of flour that I have to keep in the garage freezer so it isn’t sitting on the garage floor..i go through about 2-3 bags a year (;
mmmm…the cinnamon and sugar mixture..i usually have more sugar than cinnamon but this time there was more cinnamon and it was good!! Traditionally these cookies are rolled in sugar but one year I rolled them in cinnamon and sugar and that’s when I knew I had to change it.
Eat these cookies…let them melt in your mouth (: these are delicious dipped in milk, hot chocolate or coffee..if you like super crisp cookies..make them smaller and they will crunch.
