Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies
A delicious, quick, and easy Peanut Butter Cookie recipe
- 220 g Plain flour
- 3/4 tsp Baking Soda (Bicarbonate of Soda)
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 210 g Creamy or Crunchy Peanut Butter Do not use all natural peanut butter if you can help it
- 100 g Vegan Block Butter softened, or Margarine
- 200 g Brown Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 Tbsp Water
Preheat the oven to 150 degrees . Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper or a Silpat liner.In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda. Set aside.
Mix the butter, sugar, vanilla, peanut butter, and water together with a hand or stand mixer until light and fluffy. Slowly mix in the flour mixture. If you find the dough a bit stiff, add more water. Just a tablespoon at a time.
Using a scoop or your hands, roll out little balls of dough and place them a few inches apart on the cookie sheet. Press the dough with the back of a fork, and then again the opposite way to create a cross hatch. Place the fork in some flour before scoring if it starts to stick.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden around the edges. Let cool and serve.
