Unlevened Peanut Butter Cookies (For Cookie Stamping)

"This simple recipe is for unlevened cookies, meaning they contain no ingredients to make them rise, so this makes them perfect for use with cookie stamps. They will hold a nice, clean, sharp image when you stamp them. I made adorable little Jack-o-lantern cookies by adding orange food coloring to the wet ingredients in the dough, and then stamping them with the Stampin' Up! Sweet Cookie Press Jack-o-lantern face. They are a little crispier than typical peanut butter cookies since they don't rise, so to keep them moist and chewy DON'T overbake, and store them in an airtight container with a few slices of store-bought bread. The preservatives in the bread will keep them fresher. Enjoy!"

Ready In:
24-30 cookies




  • Mix all ingredients together. Roll in 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased cookiesheet 2 inches between each cookie. Refrigerate dough balls for 10-15 minutes to make them firm. Press down the dough ball with a cookie stamp dusted with flour or powdered sugar to prevent sticking. If you don't own cookie stamps, you can use a fork to create the more traditional grid design. Bake in 350 degree oven for 10-12 minute.

I'm an artist and I work from home, so I love to have the smell of something delicious cooking in the background while I'm working. Cooking is the way that I show love to my family and friends -- I get that from my Southern grandma, who always made amazing meals for our large extended family. Since I learned to cook from her, I always end up making meals that could feed a small army. Down home, old fashioned, comfort foods that make lots of leftovers are my specialty. I love to eat any kind of ethnic food but I'm just learning to cook from different cultures. My favorite place in the world is New Orleans, so I love to make Cajun and Creole food. I call myself the Faux Chef because I don't have the talent to be a chef but I try really hard. My problem is, I never measure anything (thanks, Grandma!) which makes me TERRIBLE at baking.
