Watch out Girl Scouts!

I found a recipe for peanut butter cookies that are just as good as your peanut butter cookies and now can have them whenever I want... not just the one time of year when i order from you and eat the whole box in one sitting!  HA  Take that!

Wow.  Where did that come from?  in all of the cookie excitement crazy me came out.  Ok.  lets go back and take away all of the snarky comments about girl scouts.  they work hard.  But I am still excited about this new to me peanut butter recipe.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line 2-3 baking sheets with parchment.  In a large bowl, mix together peanut butter, sugars, eggs, baking soda, salt until smooth. 

 2. Shape the dough into balls ( about one tablespoon each) and place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.  Using the tines on a fork, press into dough to make a hatch mark.

I love using my scoopers for this.  they create perfectly measured round balls of dough without getting your hands totally gooey. 

use your favorite fork, i prefer using wider forks to cover cookie surface area.  Press and drag. 

Holy big cookies Batman!  these were scooped with a slightly bigger scooper... about 1/4 cup in size. 

Scooper size as it relates to cookie size. 

seriously delicious.  Seriously moist.  Seriously... i ate 5 of them fresh out of the oven! (Shhhhh.  dont tell Daniel... he says i need to watch my sugar!)

Best.Peanut. Butter.Cookie. Recipe. EVER.
