Slightly chewy, warming and tasty.

These peanut cookies are easy to prepare and will be a hit.

And did you know: Only 3 ingredients!

These peanut cookies are so versatile, you can just about add anything from chocolate chips to dried coconut. Also, you can use any nut butter of your choice (just be sure it’s firmer).

This is a great recipe for these difficult (2020) times when basic baking ingredients are hard to come by in grocery stores. Also, you/your kids may be bored stuck at home, get the kids involved with baking.

If you prefer a crunchier cookie, you can use caster sugar instead. For something in the middle, use 1/4C brown sugar and 1/4C caster sugar.

Tip: If you plan to save some cookies for later, heat them up for 20 seconds before you eat them. Totally optional but highly recommended.
