DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, mix peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar and egg white until completely blended.
  • Roll dough into 1"-1 1/2" balls and place about 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Press down on each cookie once or twice (crisscrossed) with the back of a fork.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, until pale golden and set around the edges.
  • Gently transfer to a wire rack to cool. If they are too crumbly to move, let cool for a minute or two on the cookie sheet first.
  • Makes 2 dozen cookies.
  • Variations:
  • Peanut Butter Raisin Roundies.
  • Add 1 1/2 cups raisins to the peanut butter mixture. Roll balls of dough as directed but flatten them a little with your hand on the cookie sheet. Bake as directed. You will get more cookies from your batch, with 120 calories each, 1.4 g fiber, 4.5 g fat and 30% calories from fat.
  • Peanut Butter White Chocolate Chunk Cookies.
  • These are a little higher in fat, but they sure are delicious, and most of the fat is still unsaturated. Stir 1/2 cup chopped white chocolate into the dough and bake as directed. Adds 1 g fat per cookie.
