Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white wheat flour ( or wheat pastry flour )
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 to 2 tablespoons ground up flax seed
First you cream together the butter, peanut butter and brown sugar. Beat in the egg and set aside. In another bowl combine the dry ingredients. Mix and add little by little too the wet ingredients. If you live in my house, we also take real Reese's peanut butter cups and crush them up and put them in the dough. MMMMMMMMM
Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes. My husband loves me when I place a whole reese's in the middle too. Since it's almost Easter and I had Reese's hard candy coated eggs, I used those instead. These cookies turned out SUPER yummy! I should know because I ate 4 yesterday!
This was taken before they were cooked. Aren't they cute?
If you want to try this recipe without the "healthy" stuff use 1 1/4 cup white flour instead of the wheat flour and don't add the flax seed. But I PROMISE you they tasted exactly the same so you may as well add the extra goodness.
