I am incapable of following a recipe.
This is one of the prime reasons why I rarely bake, because experimentation in baking requires more scientific knowledge than I currently have.
I’ve had my eye on these for a while, since almond butter and maple syrup are two of my (many) favorite foods. They both happen to also be very expensive, so between the spendthrift in me and my lack of baking skills, I kept putting it off.
But since my last batch of cookies went relatively well, I decided it was time to try something new. Then the wheels started turning, and the recipe kind of went out the window.
These were just okay – I thought the white chocolate pb would be sweet enough on its own, but I think it would be better with the addition of some honey or agave. Any bakers have advice?
white chocolate peanut butter drops
- 1/3 c white chocolate peanut butter
- 2 T canola oil
- 2/3 c whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/4 t baking soda
- pinch salt
- 2-3 T water, as needed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix peanut butter and oil until well combined. Mix dry ingredients. Pour wet into dry. Add water if dough is too dry. Place on greased baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Makes 12 small cookies.
I really had no idea what was going to happen when I put these in the oven, so I was surprised to see them actually rise. Baking is such a strange thing.
