SunButter Cookies

MG prefers soybutter over sunbutter but when I read a review of this recipe from the Peanut Allergy Kid Blog I knew we needed to give it a try and we weren't disappointed. This recipe is from the SunButter Website.


1/2 tsp. Salt
1 cup Unsalted Butter
1 1/2 cups Creamy SunButter
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
2 Eggs-Large Whole (I replaced the eggs with Ener-g Egg Replacer)
3 tsp. Vanilla Extract
3 1/4 cups Flour
1 cup Nonfat Dry Milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a bowl, combine flour, dry milk and salt.
3. In a different bowl, blend margarine, SunButter®, white sugar, brown sugar, eggs (or replacement) and vanilla until smooth.
4. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well.
5. Take about 1 1/2 tbsp of cookie dough and roll into a ball. Place the ball onto a cookie sheet and flatten dough with a spatula. Repeat process for the rest of the dough.
6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly brown.
7. Cool for 1 minute on cookie sheet.

These were really fun to make and eat. I had to add about 1/4 cup water because my batter was too crumbly. I then rolled them into balls and squished a dark chocolate hershey's kiss in the middle before baking. They were a special treat and one we'll be making again. MG rated them with two thumbs up!
