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.
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
There is no way that this recipe will ever make a dough. If you follow the directions the texture you get is somewhere between that of cornmeal and oatmeal and it's nowhere near wet enough to roll into a ball. Also the ratio of peanut butter to flour is way off. I ended up putting twice as much peanut butter as called for and about a tablespoon of milk in order to bring it to a doughish consistancy. They still taste rather bla but the kids don't seem to mind. I can't help but think that something was left out of the ingredient list for this.
