What Time Is It? Cookie Time!

Peanut butter cookies are timeless. They are also very easy to make with minimal ingredients on hand. The go-to for when you want cookies but don't have a ton of ingredients or don't feel like getting too complicated. I made these cookies yesterday for my sweetie. They were fast and easy to make and he loves them. I needed time to get ready for our Valentine's date, and wanted to make him a treat for all the sweet things he sent to me throughout the day. You can make these with or without the frosting. The frosting is from my cupcake post this week and you can find the recipe here. Have fun and happy baking!

Peanut Butter Almond Cookies

What you will need:
  • 1 1/2 cup flour (I used Bob's Red Mill Garbanzo Bean flour)
  • 3/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1 cup chunky peanut butter (I used Trader Joe's brand)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp pure almond extract

What you will need to do:

Preheat oven 400 degrees. Mix together the dry and wet ingredients into a dough. You can roll these into balls and pat down a little on an ungreased baking sheet or you can use cookie cutters in your favorite shapes. Bake for about 10 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Let cool completely before you remove from the pan (or they will break apart because they retain heat in the middle). Enjoy with a glass of almond milk perhaps!
