Captain Geo's Peanut Butter Criss-Cross Cookies

Submitted by: GEODECAT

Introduction

I've been craving some good Peanut Butter cookies for a long time, and thought I would try to adapt an old school recipe to reduce the sugars and carbs a little.
Feel free to tweak.

Number of Servings: 30

Ingredients

    1/2 cup unsalted butter (you can use butter flavored shortening).
    1/2 generous cup chunky peanut butter (a little over 5 oz on the scale)
    1/2 cup Splenda
    1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
    1 large egg
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    3/4 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
    1/2 cups quick oats (pulverized in food processor)
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, cream the shortening, peanut butter, and both sugars. Stir in the egg and vanilla.

In another bowl, stir together the flour, pulverized oats, baking soda and salt, then add that mixture to the peanut butter mixture and stir until incorporated.

Shape into small balls about ¾ inch in diameter and place balls a few inches apart on parchment lined cookie sheets. Wet a fork with water and shake off excess. Press the damp fork into cookies and make deep criss-crosses. If fork dries, dampen it again and continue.

Bake for about 10-13 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet and place on a rack to cool.

Makes about 2 ½ dozen
