Eggless Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

The texture of the cookies is crispy and chewy. After having a bite, you will not believe that these yummy babies are eggless. And obviously it has sweet and salty taste from peanut butter.

There are two types of peanut butter available in the market– (1) it says ‘old-fashioned’ or ‘natural’ on the jar. This kind has like separate texture, every time you use, you have to stir first. Not good for cookies. (2) It says ‘zero trans fat’ or ‘hydrogenated oil’ on the jar. Buy this kind for making cookies.

Finally I am sharing peanut butter cookies recipe made without eggs with you. I have made it about 2 months back and it was in my draft. I just forgot to post it. Yesterday I made eggless chocolate chip cookies and it reminds me that I haven’t posted my peanut butter cookies recipe yet. So here it is.

There are two cookies are very popular in America. Chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cookies are two most favorite american cookies.

Peanut butter cookies can be easily recognized by criss-cross design on them. If you like then you can add chopped peanuts or chocolate chips in the cookies. It adds nice crunch to it.

Enjoy your peanut butter cookies with a glass of milk or as such. I like to dunk cookies in the milk before having a bite, just fantastic.

14) If using, add peanuts or chocolate chips then fold them with spatula. I skipped those.

15) If batter is too soft to form a ball then pop it into the fridge for 20-25 minutes. I kept in freezer for 15 minutes because I was in little rush. Why need to chill the batter? If batter is too soft then cookies will spread too much as they bake and the shape won’t be good round. So chilled batter cookie will hold their shape better.

16) Now make tablespoon size balls from the batter and arrange them on prepared cookie sheet. Place them about 1 ½ -2 inches apart from each other. because they will spread a little as they bake.

To freeze, simply make the cookie balls, arrange them on the sheet, keep the freezer till all the balls are frozen. Then you can put them in zip-lock bag or the airtight container. Keep them in the freezer. Whenever you want to bake the cookies, just place the balls few inches apart in the cookie sheet.
