Soo… I almost killed my best friend’s husband. I know. I am the worst person in the world. In the whole world. Ok, so despite the fact that Mona is now convinced I hate her amazingly sweet and adorable love of her life… I really do love her hubby. Like really. Like my hubby misses her hubby since they moved to AZ so much that any time I mention his name, I get an “Aw, I miss that guy,” Ya, we love them. Really. For reals. Even though I tried to kill him.
So remember these adorable little Meringue Kisses I made? Well, I sent a bunch of them to Mona and her hubby because I made a few batches and I wanted to share the love (slash not eat 4 dozen meringues…). Totally innocent, right? Only if I had remembered that her hubby was allergic to EGGS. Oh yeah, the 75% egg cookie, yup I sent them to a man with a serious sweet tooth and a recently discovered allergy to eggs. Worst person in the world.
Even worse… I didn’t even realize the potential chaos I caused until I got this text after posting the Meringue Kisses:
And then I had a mini-heart attack. Luckily, it appears his allergy may be just to the yolks, and in my defense, the egg allergy is pretty new and we haven’t seen him since it was discovered. I’m still the worst person in the world and totally never living this accidental murder attempt down, which she shouldn’t. It’s totally deserved.
Which brings us to these little babies. I call them my “I’m-so-sorry-that-I-almost-killed-your-husband-Cookies” Completely egg-free, guilt free, and murderous intentions free!
Even better, super easy! All basic ingredients (plus flour that I totally forgot when I took this photo) and peanut butter which we didn’t have so it gave me an excuse to make more. What’s better than homemade peanut butter cookies? Homemade peanut butter cookies with homemade peanut butter, that’s what!
So, I whipped up some peanut butter. Really, it’s sooo easy to make! Don’t believe me? Watch Alton Brown’s video on it and take it from him.
Creamed sugars and butter mixed with a cup of the homemade PB and then the flour and baking soda mixed in…
Baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes and we had these beauties. They’re flat without the structure of the egg, but that just meant we had Peanut Butter Cookie Crisps!
“I’m-sorry-I-almost-killed-you Egg-less Homemade Peanut Butter Cookies!” 😉
- 1 cup of 100% natural peanut butter (Here’s how to make your own!)
- 1 cup of butter
- 1 cup of white sugar
- 1 cup of packed brown sugar
- 5 Tablespoons of milk
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 2 cups of flour
- 2 teaspoons of baking soda
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Thoroughly cream the sugars, butter, milk and vanilla. Stir in peanut butter. In a separate bowl, mix flour and baking soda. Add flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture. On an ungreased cookie sheet drop add small spoonfuls of the batter 2 inches apart- they will spread quite a bit.
- Bake for 13-15 minutes.
