I absolutely LOVE peanut butter! If it came down to selecting my 3 favorite foods, they would be:

  1. Peanut Butter
  2. Broccoli
  3. French Fries

Even though I am more of a savory girl, these peanut butter cookies offer just the right amount of sweetness!

Drizzling the chocolate topping is definitely optional, but as my grandson insists, everything is better with chocolate!

ENJOY!

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbl. vegan egg, mixed with 2/3 cup COLD water
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Earth Balance sticks softened (OR butter-flavored Crisco)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter crunchy
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups flour all purpose
  • 8 oz. dark chocolate chips, melted
