GIGANTIC SOFT PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES




GIGANTIC SOFT PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

The perfect soft peanut butter cookie recipe, I think. These are beautiful big peanut butter cookies with a soft texture. They are like 2 cookies in one.  One cookie should suffice under normal circumstances. Keep them refrigerated for the absolute best texture the first day. The small amount of cornstarch  (2 grams whole carbohydrate per teaspoon - spread over 14 servings equals 0.1 g carbohydrate) really helps with the texture. You are going to love these!  After the first day, I actually prefer these at room temperature.  These are such large cookies that they are closer to eating a muffin than a cookie.

1/cup unsalted butter (125 mL)
1/cup peanut butter (125 mL)
1 egg
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia) to equal 3/4  cup (175 mL)
  sugar
1/4  cup powdered erythritol  (60 mL)
11/4  tsp vanilla extract (6 mL)
11/4  cups Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2,  CLICK FOR RECIPE! (300 mL)
  (no need for gelatin), OR 11/2  cups Keto Bake Mix (375 mL)
1 tsp cornstarch (5 mL)
1/tsp baking soda (2 mL)
1/tsp baking powder (2 mL)
A few Sugar-free chocolate chips for garnishing tops of cookies, optional

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). 

In food processor, process butter, peanut butter, egg, liquid sweetener, erythritol and vanilla extract.

In medium bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR Keto Bake Mixcornstarch, baking soda and baking powder.  Add to liquid ingredients.  Process until smooth.  Using a 2 tbsp (30 mL) cookie scoop, plop cookie batter onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Top each large cookie with a few chocolate chips, if desired, for garnish.  Bake about 12 minutes, or until the edges are golden.  Allow to cool on the cookie sheet before using a metal spatula to transfer to dinner plates and refrigerate. Once fully set, they can be placed in a different container, if desired.
