Hmmm. Things that make you go hmmm.
In Kraft peanut butter after peanuts come corn maltodextrin from GMO corn, Sugar from GMO sugar beets, soybean oil from GMO soy beans, Hydrogenated vegetable oil (cotton, maybe GMO but for sure heavily sprayed with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and defoliation chemicals, Rapeseed (GMO canola) and mono and diglycerides, which I am sure most folks are unsure of. They are emulsifiers, that is ingredients which bind the mix together to make and keep it smooth. Most are derived from palm oil.
To make peanut butter cookies with Kraft peanut butter, if enough flour is not added, the oil will separate under heat and create one ugly mess.
But to make organic peanut butter cookies from organic peanut butter, only organic eggs and organic sugar with optional organic vanilla extract are needed.
Organic Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup of organic peanut butter, stirred to make it smooth first (keep the oil in)
1 cup of organic blonde cane sugar
2 organic eggs ( I used the ones from my farm picked fresh this morning)
1 teaspoon of organic vanilla extract, or make your own from vanilla beans with vodka.
Mix the ingredients together until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl. Form into medium size balls and flatten by hand or with a fork. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 6-8 minutes, longer for larger cookies. Remove the cookies when they are still soft and let them cool. Who can let peanut butter cookies cool?
They are incredible with Enjoy Life no soy chocolate chips if you like chocolate and peanut butter together. Who doesn't?
So, which peanut butter will you use from now on? Come on over and enjoy some cookies.
