Eggless Peanut Butter Cookies

My favorite way of having Peanut Butter is in the form of these cookies. I wanted to make something for the lovely ladies I was going to meet Priya, Anu, Shubha and Hetal at the LA Foodies meet. I decided to make an eggless version of these Peanut Butter Cookies. They came out crispy and were ready in less than an hour. We had an amazing time over some amazing food at Rajdhani, Artesia. Anu was so sweet to bring us a cute little bamboo cutting board along with some minty chocolatey goodness. Looking forward to meet more bloggers in future!

Moving on to the recipe for eggless peanut butter cookies..

Creamy unsalted Peanut Butter - 1 cup
Shortening - 1 cup
Granulated white sugar - 1 cup
Brown sugar - 1 cup packed
Buttermilk - 1/2 cup
All purpose flour/ Maida - 2 cups
Baking powder - 1 teaspoon
Baking soda - 1 teaspoon
Salt - 1/4 teaspoon
Preheat oven to 375 degree F.
In a bowl, cream together the shortening, peanut butter, granulated white sugar, brown sugar and buttermilk until creamy and mixed thoroughly.
Now add the dry ingredients - baking soda, salt, baking powder and all purpose flour.
Mix together until just combined.
In a greased cookie sheet, drop a spoonful of cookie dough. You could either make a small ball between your palms and place them on the cookie sheet or just drop with a teaspoon or icecream scoop. Then flatten slightly with a fork.
Bake for around 10 to 12 minutes. When removing the cookie sheet from the oven, the cookies might be soft. But once they cool, they tend to become crispy.
Once cooled, store in an airtight container.

Look at the amazing gift Anu got for us!
