Peanut Butter Snowballs #PeanutButterDay


Today Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures rallied her foodie blogger friends to celebrate National Peanut Butter Day with her. And it just so happened that I had this peanut butter cookie that I made in December and never shared...because you know this month, Jake and I are not eating added sugars.

Funny story to tell as I've been adapting recipes to be without added sugar. Jake said, "You know those peanut butter cookies you made on New Year's Eve?" 

Yes. 

"Do you think you could make a version without sugar?" 

Are you talking about the ones that are rolled in sugar?!? 

"Oh, yeah. Nevermind. But can you can you make them in February?" 

Sure thing.

So, I'll be making these again soon. In the meantime, here's what everyone else is sharing. 

All the Peanut Buttery Yumminess

Peanut Butter Snowballs

Ingredients

  • 1 C butter, softened 
  • 2/3 C organic dark brown sugar 
  • 2/3 C peanut butter 
  • 2-1/2 Call-purpose flour 
  • 3/4 C powdered sugar + more if needed



Procedure
Beat softened butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; add sugar, beating well. Stir in peanut butter until smooth and combined.

Gradually add flour to peanut butter mixture, beating until well-blended.

Roll dough into 60 (1-inch) balls, placing them 1-inch apart on parchment paper-lined or silicone mat-lined baking sheets.

Bake at 350° for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on baking sheets on wire racks 5 minutes. Roll warm cookies in powdered sugar until completely covered.
