Sunday Supper: Two Great Cookie Recipes

‘Tis the season for baking! I’m giving you two recipes that we love in our house, and you’ll be able to use them to make three different types of cookies.

Peanut Butter No-Bakes

These cookies are very easy to make. Here is an adaptation of this recipe.

You need:

2 cups sweetener (I use Stevia in the Raw)
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup natural peanut butter (I use creamy)
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups rolled oats

1. Mix sweetener, butter, and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Boil for one minute.

2. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Stir until peanut butter is melted. Use low heat, if necessary.

3. Stir in oats.

4. Drop by spoonfalls onto clean surface.

Two-in-One Cookies

With sugar cookie dough as a base, you can make some excellent cookies. So, first make the dough:

2 3/4 cups flour (I use finely ground whole wheat)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sweetener (I use Stevia in the Raw)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Mix together, to form a dough. Divide it in half. Use the two halves to make the following cookies:

Chocolate Treats

Melt two bags of chocolate chips in a saucepan, over low heat. Stir in the cookie dough, 1/4 cup pecans, and 1/2 cup mini-marshmallows. Stir in the dough. Spoon onto a clean surface and allow to cool.

Ambrosia Cookies

Stir in 1/4 cup almonds, 1/4 cup dried cranberries, and 1/4 cup raisins. Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Happy baking!

  1. I’m not sure how healthy sugar free pudding is, but I used the pudding mix, skim milk, and heavy cream to make a yummy frosting. The bean thinks Grandma is a great baker.

    • The Bean thinks Grandma is everything perfect! Those cookies did look great. And we give her sugar free pudding sometimes. Yeah, it has artificial sweeteners, but she’s got to be able to eat something!
