Nut-free "peanut butter"-esque cookies made with Wowbutter.
Prep Time 20minutes
Cook Time 12minutes
Total Time 32minutes
2 1/2cupsall-purpose flour
1cuppacked light brown sugar
Whisk the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder together.
Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugars together in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 3-6 minutes. This will help create a uniformity to your cookies once they bake. Add the Wowbutter and mix until fully incorporated, about 30 seconds. Add in vanilla and eggs one at a time, beating until combined.
Beat in the flour mixture on low until just combined, about 30 seconds. Finish mixing by hand until no floury streak remain.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
Use a 3 tablespoon scoop to create balls of dough; lay them out on parchment-lined baking sheets about inches apart. Use a fork to create a criss-cross on each cookie. Bake for about 12-14 minutes until edges are golden and centers have puffed and are beginning to deflate. Let cool for 10 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
