This does not make food.

Candice and I decided we wanted peanut butter cookies. First stop: the recipe on the side of the jar of Kraft peanut butter. Second stop: Any other recipe, because:

Super Easy Kraft Peanut Butter Cookies

1. MIX together 1 cup KRAFT Smooth Peanut Butter, 1/2 cup sugar, and an egg.
2. ROLL into balls and flatten with fork on ungreased cookie sheet.
3. BAKE at 325 F for 15 min. Do not over-bake. Makes about 24 cookies.

Shouldn’t there be some… flour in there? Or anything other than peanut butter, sugar, and an egg? That’s not so much “baking” as “cooking peanut butter”. I’m tempted to make a quarter-batch of those just to see how disturbing they are.

  1. That is ALARMING.

    here’s the recipe I was using:

    Title: Peanut Butter Cookie
    Categories: Cookies
    Yield: 15 servings

    1/2 c Granulated sugar
    1/2 c Packed brown sugar
    1/2 c Peanut butter
    1/4 c Shortening
    1/4 c Butter or margarine;
    1 Egg
    1 1/4 c All-purpose flour
    3/4 ts Baking soda
    1/2 ts Baking powder
    1/4 ts Salt

    Recipe by: SUMMER DESSERTS
    Mix sugars, peanut butter, shortening, margarine and egg in large bowl.
    Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until
    firm. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Shape into 1-1/4″ balls. Place 3″ apart on
    ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten in crisscross pattern with floured fork.
    Bake 9-10 minutes or until light brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie

  2. Oh they’re tasty! Nice and soft. I hate crunchy cookies. Did you know putting a piece of white bread into your cookie container keeps em soft too?

  3. Better than real (or Kraft) peanutbutter cookies:

    No Bake Fudge Cookies

    2 c. sugar
    ½ c. milk
    ½ c. margarine/butter
    4 T. cocoa
    ½ t. salt
    Boil above in 2-3 quart sauce pan for one minute
    Remove from heat

    ½ c. peanut butter
    1 t. vanilla
    3 c. oatmeal (instant)
    ½ c. nuts (optional)
    Drop on was paper by teaspoonful and cool

  4. give them a chance, i see recipes of flourless cookies and cakes all the time. the part i’m worried about is the kraft smooth peanut butter. :D

  5. There’s probably enough filler in Kraft peanut butter already that adding extra flour is unnecessary.

    That’s scary.

  6. I can’t believe people are being so rude. This recipe tastes good. So what if it doesn’t use flour or something? why are you complaining and i bet right after you baked that quarter-batch you noticed how good these cookies actually are! hmph…GO KRAFT PEANUT BUTTER!
