Peanut Butter Cookies with Peanut Butter Frosting

February 2010 (Winter 2010 Semeseter) 018

These aren’t a real sweet cookie, but I enjoyed them anyway! Besides, eating them with frosting, it was plenty sweet too! :) I altered the cookie recipe from this source. The frosting I made up myself, based on my alterations I made.

Ingredients (Cookie) :

  • 2 cups flour (Whole wheat or GF mix)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 c. natural peanut butter (or other nut butter, or nut-free sunbutter)
  • 1/3 c. softened butter (or earth balance)
  • 1/2 c. honey
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1.5 t. vanilla extract

Place your oven racks on the top third. Set your oven for 350. Combine the wet ingredients and then add the dry ingredients. Stir as little as possible. Create balls of dough or just spoon the dough onto a greased cookie sheet. Use a fork to squish down. Cook for 15-20 minutes.

Peanut-Butter Frosting:

1/2 c. peanut butter

1/4 c. +/- honey (I am going to try a little less next time)

3 T softened butter

Combine, and spread on cookies… If making the full amount of cookies (and desiring the full amount to have frosting) , you may want to double/triple this recipe as it doesn’t make a lot.
