Yesterday I had a craving for peanut butter cookies. I remembered the ones my Mom used to make and wanted something similar, but not as fatty and sweet. I immediately reached for Vive Le Vegan because I find Dreena's cookies just sweet enough, but not sicky sweet. I also didn't want a recipe that made dozens of cookies. Low and behold - Peanut Better Cookies.
I chose to make the wheat-free version that used spelt flour instead of wheat flour. These suckers came out huge! They were perfect. Not too sweet, just peanut buttery enough, chewy enough and the spelt flour gave them a great texture.
Dreena now has a new fan in Simon. He was going crazy sniffing the air when I took these out of the oven. Then, later in the evening, this took place.
Hmmm...what's this? Sure smells good. Peanut butter cookies! Oh yea!
If I stare at them long enough, I'll know they'll levitate. They just have to!
That didn't seem to work. Maybe a different angle will do the trick.
Come on cookies! Come on cookies! I'm using the power of my Jack Russell mind. Come on cookies!
Why is this not working?
Mom. Please. Give. Me. A. Cookie.
Aren't I cute? Don't you just want to give me a cookie? I'm begging you! Please may I have a cookie?!
I kid you not, he was crying! CRYING!! He wanted one of those so bad. I did give him a couple of small pieces and he gobbled them right up. He loved them. He was then, a happy boy.
