This is one of the easiest cookie recipes around. Today, my good friend Maya stopped by to help make these. And, my friend Parker (also a 4th grader) directed the video for this episode, so be sure to check it out. SEE VIDEO RECIPE!
In a bowl, mix 1 cup peanut butter (not the natural kind because that has too much liquid), 1 organic egg, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup of Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking Mix. We mixed ours by hand.
Make small to medium-sized round balls with the dough. We made nice mini ones that were about one-inch in diameter. Place them on a cookie sheet.
Dip a fork into white sugar and make a criss-cross pattern onto your cookie, flattening it a little. See the photos below. (Psssttt…try not to eat all the cookie dough while doing this!. I know, it’s hard not to!)
Bake cookies in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 10 to 20 minutes depending on the size of your cookies. They should look slightly golden brown on the bottom half, and firm on top. Make sure to let the cookies cool before trying to move them or they will crumble.
Enjoy with friends!
The VIDEO EPISODE to this project was directed by my friend Parker, a 4th grader who likes horseback riding, styling food, and, of course, cooking & crafting on Wondermint!
