I recently developed a craving for peanut butter cookies, a challenge for someone watching their points. Found this on the Weight Watchers website and have modified it to boost the nutty flavor without changing the points.
Melt the margarine or butter in a small saucepan until it sizzles and just begins to brown. Remove from heat and freeze for 20 minutes, or until firm.
While butter or margarine is cooling, combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
Combine margarine and peanut butter in another mixing bowl, beating on medium speed until blended and smooth. Gradually add both sugars and beat until blended. Add egg white and vanilla and beat until smooth. While beating on low speed, gradually add flour mixture and mix until just blended.
Transfer dough to a large piece of plastic wrap and roll into an 8-inch log. Wrap log in plastic wrap and freeze for 2 hours. (Note: You can make the cookie dough up to 3 days in advance and freeze until ready to bake.).
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat 2 large baking sheets with cooking spray.
Remove cookie dough from freezer and slice crosswise into 1/3 inch-thick slices; place slices 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake until golden around edges, about 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
