You Can Make Deliciously Nutty Peanut Butter Cookies With Just 2 Ingredients
To make peanut butter cookies that are rich, moist, and melt-in-your-mouth crumbly, all you need is all-natural peanut butter and powdered sugar or a liquid sweetener.
Use liquid sweeteners like honey, maple, or agave syrup. All-natural peanut butter is simply peanuts and salt, so be sure to check the ingredients label before buying a jar.
The liquid sweetener will seamlessly blend into peanut butter's natural oils and thicken the mixture into a malleable yet thick dough while adding complementary flavor notes.
Cooking times and ingredient proportions vary depending on the sweetener used. For liquid sweeteners, you should add two tablespoons for every cup of all-natural peanut butter.
Powdered sugar should be added in a one-to-two ratio with peanut butter. For every cup of peanut butter, add half a cup of powdered sugar.
Powdered sugar peanut butter cookies take nine to eleven minutes to bake while the cooking times for maple syrup and honey lie between eight and ten minutes.
Refrigerate the dough for at least half an hour to firm it up before baking at 350 degrees F. The result will be crumbly, soft peanut butter cookies.
