These easy, 5-ingredient Flourless Toffee Peanut Butter Cookies are the most peanut-buttery cookie EVER! The perfect cookie for peanut butter lovers! Serve with an ice cold glass of milk for extreme satisfaction!
We interrupt the previous scheduled holiday programming to bring you a cookie that’s good all.year.long. You’re welcome.
Today we’re taking a break from pumpkin and peppermint and going back to my roots… peanut butter!
So, no matter if you’re on a gluten-free diet or are like BRING ON THE GLUTEN, these cookies are better than any other peanut butter cookie out there and our worthy of your time. The peanut butter flavor is so pure and intense that it makes other peanut butter cookies seem lacking in flavor by comparison.
Y’all know how much I love easy recipes and this cookie recipe is exactly that. With only 5 ingredients, what’s not to love? Chunky peanut butter, toffee bitstoffee bits, sugar, an egg, and vanilla extract. That’s it.
After using a cookie scoop to scoop out the dough, I roll the cookie dough in sugar before placing on the cookie sheet to bake. My Nana did this for every single batch of peanut butter cookies and that woman knew what was what in the kitchen.
Something else my Nana did was the the traditional criss-cross markings on top of the peanut butter cookies that are made by pressing the tines of a fork into the top of a the cookie dough. Not only are they decorative but they help the cookies take shape. You can also just press down gently on top of the cookie dough ball with the palm of your hand to flatten if you like.
Extra peanut-buttery, super easy to make, these cookies need to make it onto your to-do list STAT. Just don’t forget the milk!
