Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
I love recipes that are easy - and I only make recipes that are low carb. Here's the perfect combination! Great for casual snacking and even special occasions.
1 cup crunchy sugar-free peanut butter
1 cup Splenda
Heat oven to 350F. Mix together the peanut butter, Splenda and egg. Spray down a cookie sheet, and put 1" balls of the mix onto the sheet. Take a fork and press it into the ball once, then turn the fork 90 degrees and press in again to make a criss-cross pattern. Bake 10 minutes and enjoy!
The only real carbs in here are from the peanut butter, so look at the brand you've gotten and see how much was in a cup - then divvy them up amongst the number of cookies you made.
If you want to make the cookies more fancy, press a shape into them - perhaps a heart or other symbol. Fill the indentation in with a low carb raspberry jam.
NOTE: If your store does not stock sugar-free peanut butter, be sure to mention it at their customer service desk. Stores really do listen to their customer's requests, and they might be able to get it in quickly for you! In the meantime, a quick web search should find you several online suppliers.
