Another inexpensive alternative to prepared mixes. These ingredients are always a staple in my house and therefore we are always ready to bake in the Easy Bake!
- In a bowl, mix together all ingredients to make a dough.
- With your fingers roll into 1/2 inch balls.
- Place 4 balls into the Easy Bake Oven pan and press down slightly with the tines of a fork.
- Bake for 6 minutes.
- Bake remaining balls 4 at a time.
I used whole wheat pastry flour, and honey in place of sugar. I figured this would be a good recipe to experiment with using honey with since the previous reviewer complained of the dough being dry. I didn't notice the dough seeming particularly dry even considering I added honey instead of dry sugar. I would suggest warming the butter on top of the easy bake while it is preheating (it is rather difficult to handle in that small of an amount cold). Easy bake recipes tend to look dry, you just have to keep mixing until it doesn't. Overall a nice recipe. The cookies were rather bland, but I was using a different brand of peanut butter than I usually buy that does tend to be bland.
With a few tweaks, this recipe was one of the best EBO recipes we've tried. I did soften the butter in the microwave first (30 sec on 20% power). I decreased the flour to 3T and increased the sugar to 2T. We also added some chopped up peanut butter chips. You do have to smoosh them together to make balls, and flatten them slightly on the cookie sheet. But they turned out delicious, just like a regular peanut butter cookie!
They tasted pretty good and were really easy to make, but I had to add a bit of milk to get it to actually turn into dough. Next time I make them I'm gonna add a bit more sugar because there wasn't enough
