A few months ago, I was lucky enough to receive a treasure trove of recipes. My aunt gave me a recipe box that has been traveling around Montana, from family to family for the better part of the last hundred years!
When I found the recipe card titled Unbelievable Cookies, I knew I would try them first! They’re just 3 ingredients and they are pretty unbelievable. They’re moist and chewy but crumbly at the same time. There’s no flour in them at all, so they are chock full of flavor. Let me just say, I’m really grateful to the original author of the this recipe, because it’s given my a basic blueprint for all kinds of flourless cookies to come!
Place the peanut butter, egg, and coconut sugar (I used a blonde coconut sugar) in a medium sized mixing bowl. Stir until combined, and you’re ready to bake, just that quick. I don’t know if it’s a good thing or not, that these cookies are so quick and easy to make! I may have some trouble staying away from them.
I rolled my cookies and they baked nice and rounded with a really moist center. You could do the traditional criss-cross pattern, but you will need to take them out of the oven sooner because they will bake faster.
When they come out of the oven, they’ll be golden but still soft in the middle. If you lightly press the center, it should leave a dent as you can see in the above photo.
These are really good on their own, but… you could make Chocolate Fudge Frosting because peanut butter is always better with chocolate!Print
