In my previous Food Allergy post, I mentioned that I use SunButter. SunButter is made from sunflower seeds and can be used as a substitute for peanut butter and other nut butters. In my house, peanuts and tree nuts are strictly avoided. Peanut Butter Cookies have always been a favorite of mine so I adapted the recipe to be allergy free for me. (Always remember what is allergy free for one person isn’t necessarily allergy free for another.)
- 1 cup SunButter (Natural)
- 1 cup White Sugar
- 1 Egg
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Cream sunbutter and sugar.
- Add egg and mix until smooth.
- Use cookie scoop to shape dough into balls.
- Place on ungreased cookie sheet. (I use a Silpat & an Airbake cookie sheet.)
- Flatten dough balls by criss-crossing with a fork.
- Bake until done.
- Yields about 2 - 2.5 dozen.
Then…what better way to serve your cookies than on a vintage platter. Here are a few selections from Etsy.
You can always use your favorite substitute for white sugar. And, you can substitute 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce for the egg. I hope you’ll give the cookie recipe a try. Be sure to serve them on your favorite vintage platter!
