15 Minute Peanut Butter Cookies

From Foodsies!

Great googely moogely it's been a long time since I last posted. Oh frozen food, you are so alluring. To welcome myself back, here are some super easy and super delicious peanut butter cookies. And yes, they only take about 15 minutes from pulling out the first ingredient to nomming down on a warm cookie. I love them because you can get a cookie craving and then almost immediately have actual cookies in front of you. It's faster than going to the store and buying cookies.

15 Minute Peanut Butter Cookies


1/2 Cup Earth Balance
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar*
1/2 TBSP Vanilla
3 TBSP Water
2 Cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda

* You can also just use 1 cup of regular sugar and omit the brown sugar.


Preheat the oven to 350.

Add the Earth Balance, Peanut Butter, Sugars, Vanilla, and Water to a medium mixing bowl and cream and/or stir until everything is well mixed and as unlumpy as you can get it.

Add the flour and baking soda and mix thoroughly. You might need to add another TBSP of water if it's too dry to form into little balls.

Pinch off ping-pong ball sized globs of the dough and roll in your palm to form a.. ping-pong ball. Place on a lined baking sheet. Repeat, placing the balls about 1-2 inches apart, until you have all of the cookies.

Using a fork, gently mash down the balls so that they are flat and marked with the tines of the fork.

Bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes. You want the top of the cookie to have some squish, but not be too soft.

Let cool and enjoy.
